what a sad day for Nokia... Nokia brand has been so Iconic for the growth of mobile industry. what went wrong?
My condolences to the last of the Mohegans who hoped that one day Nokia would resurrect (of course after Elop's corporate death). What were proud Finns thinking?
100% agree with the mole comment! Elop should not only be investigated but neutered for doing this to this famed brand!
We want Nokia back in mobile phone Industry. In 2016 Nokia please make a Nexus phone partnering with Google and show the world what u r capable of. Eagerly waiting for Nokia + android combo. I will not buy Lumia 1020, rather I will buy old used pureview 808. It has the true Nokia soul and heart.
AnonD-178450, 04 Sep 2013Man this guy Elop should be investigated for illogical moves and intentions all along, I mean ... moreRead this : Nokia, execs hit with class-action suit over disappointing Lumia sales
It was way back in May 2012.
frh, 04 Sep 2013N9 should have been given time to prove its mettle. But Elop on the day of announcing it said ... moreYou are spot on. Just read through 1st two para's of N9 review.. It was evident from the 1st day that Elop's intention wasn't bringing Nokia to it's glory but dragging it down to MS foots, so they can buy it. What a crooked, failed CEO he was. On the other hand, if Nokia investers smart enough they could've seen this is coming in year 2011 when they had MeeGo and N9. They are to blame in first place for having blind eye to what is happening in market. For god sake, they should've gone through GSMArena comments to understand their loyal Nokia customers. We grow with Nokia, we have so many memories with Nokia, but they din't respect that loyalty.
Stupid nokia, why did you hire an ex employee of ms?? Symbian and meego have been killed i was so sad cuz i had a nokia phone..I wont buy wp8 phone cuz i hate them.bye nokia rip.
Man this guy Elop should be investigated for illogical moves and intentions all along, I mean clearly it all looks murky and nobody is doing anything about it. Look at the way he is running away from the company. Disgraceful.
vin p., 04 Sep 2013Elop has successfully completed his task. Bill came, he saw, he conquered....! Elop Kille... moreBill Gates has not been involved in any of this. He doesn't even move anything at Microsoft anymore. This was Elop's doing, he's a Microsoft shill.
AnonD-173097, 04 Sep 2013Yeah but the partnership with Intel was a better idea than partnering with microsoft. Can you ... moreN9 should have been given time to prove its mettle. But Elop on the day of announcing it said they are killing Meego. That was deliberate and totally wrong. He is a Microsoft (ex)-employee and his decision to dump Meego and go for WP was not made entirely in Nokia's interest. They could have easily continued with both. And not to forget Meego had full Google Play support with Dalvik VM. N9 was not dual-core but it was comparable to other flagships of its time i.e. Galaxy S II etc. in performance.
Nokia would have still been in the game had Elop let Meego survive. Intel was not happy with Elop's decision and everybody saw Microsoft's hand in it. Everybody has been proven right now. The entire Meego team, the directors and core professionals from Nokia's N9 team left Nokia and formed Jolla in an attempt to continue the N9's legacy. Elop had turned away everybody for his loyalty to Microsoft and to make MS happy. Now what has been done. MS just to get a stronger foothold in mobile phone design, manufacturing, marketing and support have destroyed a brand that "is synonymous to a mobile phone" in many parts of the world. Elop was more concerned about the fact that people see Nokia's association with WP as absolute and complete than to understand what market and consumers expect from a Nokia. Elop's stint at Nokia became MS's entry into mobile phone world. This doesn't look like work of a good CEO. This looks like the handiwork of a mole.
Skype was bought for 8.5 Billion, and Nokia in bits and pieces, parts hand picked by the mole over a course of 2.5 years.
paco2x, 03 Sep 2013People love too much escape goats, their Two Minutes Hate... Nokia was in serious decline befo... moreYeah but the partnership with Intel was a better idea than partnering with microsoft. Can you imagine how advanced and fast would be Meego by now if it wasn't dumped?
I think we should give time for MS.... wait and see how's MS gonna do...
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2013Nokia's revenge will be dreadful!
Or not.There will be no revenge.
Nokia is dead, baby.
Nokia is dead.
Nokia was sold to Microsoft cheaper than Skype!
Nokia fan boys! Where are you?
I breakfast with the News, this morning. Im worried about it, because i don't know what's gonna be with my Job, but in the other hand, Ellop leading again, probably little changes may apply, and not the hole estructure.
By the way, the little miracle of seeing an android device manufactured by Nokia, died this morning. Good Bless Us...
WTF elops is doing RIP nokia. I loved nokia, but I can see that they aren't listening to their consumer.
Elop has successfully completed his task.
Bill came, he saw, he conquered....!
Elop Killed Symbian and Meego, the best the world could have.
No more reason to buy Nokia.
nokia made a good decision to sell the mobile department of their company. but do not think they are finished. they owned a large collection of patents used by most major mobile companies. and to those who are talking about nokia not going to used Android, well, they recently made Vertu Ti luxury phone with android. Nokia is still part of the Vertu mobile and continue to be the manufacturer of the handsets. check this website:http://www.vertu.com/
