MobilePowerUser, 04 Sep 2013Windows Phone 8 is growing. Microsoft bought Nokia at the right time. Record share for Windows... morethanks to Nokia, it's not because of Windows Phone OS or Microsoft, actually this OS is sucks!
Bye bye Nokia.....Microsoft's brilliant track record with Balmer at the wheel, speaks for itself... your death certificate has been signed & sealed. SHORT NOKIA NOW!
Microsoft notable to create good or interesting os
the best is only android
MobilePowerUser, 04 Sep 2013Android dropped quite a bit in marketshare in Q2 2013 while WP8 and iOS are growing. WP8 has g... moreYes. WP8 was growing in Europe because European people wanted to support the last European brand. They thought Nokia could be cool and competitive again, but MS was the lazy one being slow with updates. Very few people here will now buy a WP phone without the Nokia name on it.
MobilePowerUser, 04 Sep 2013Change UI that even create more force closes? Average people do no care about changing UI.Average people do no care about an old, ugly and boring UI.
as I say it since the alliance with microsoft..but banned my coment,., this will be a future ENRON. just remember
Alas !!! all the hopes of seeing an android based nokia device are gone now. I do not think Microsoft will ever use Android on it's product.
years ago, sony make phones, sony didn't really success. then they join with ericsson which are more popular that time.
after years, sony bought ericsson. now there's only the big brand of SONY. the so called sony-ericsson brand is dumped. so sony just riding ericsson train to success.
now microsoft will do the same to nokia. can anybody see this coming?
Bunyip22, 04 Sep 2013So your saying that Android is down in the US, WP is up in Europe therefore people are getting... moreAndroid is also plummet in the US. Down 7.6%
MobilePowerUser, 04 Sep 2013Windows Phone 8 is growing. Microsoft bought Nokia at the right time. Record share for Windows... moreLet me quote you from the article.
"Globally, Apple and Android continue to dominate sales, but there are interesting regional patterns emerging. Android is far stronger across the major European markets and China where it accounted for around 70% of smartphone sales during the past quarter.
Apple continues to perform very well in the USA where it has grown its share to 43.4% of sales. It is also continuing to show strong year on year growth in Britain, France and Mexico. Sunnebo explains: “Apple and Android must focus on a balance between retaining existing customers and attracting featurephone owners to trade up if they want to continue their success over the next year.”"
MobilePowerUser, 04 Sep 2013Change UI that even create more force closes? Average people do no care about changing UI.What BS you talking about? If people don't care about UI, why MS invested so much on Metro UI for WP? You are nothing but a troll against Android.
this is an insult to everything nokia. Nokia could stand on its own but that bullshit ceo is to blame. This was well planned! Nokia plans to use windows phone 7 and abandon meego and symbian completely! This is goodbye for me to nokia.
MobilePowerUser, 04 Sep 2013I should have said Android is down 7.6% in the US.So your saying that Android is down in the US, WP is up in Europe therefore people are getting tired of Android?
(despite Androids world market share growing 10% to 80% in 12 months)
You aren't a politician are you?
MobilePowerUser, 04 Sep 2013Windows Phone 8 is growing. Microsoft bought Nokia at the right time. Record share for Windows... moreMS is doomed, how will they compete with Apple using Nokia's hardware expertise alone? Google(OS)+Motorola(hardware brand) are still better equipped to compete with Apple(OS+hardware brand) than Microsoft(OS)+Nokia(hardware brand).
Apple will end up being the clear winner in battle between Google+Motorola vs Microsoft+Nokia at least in US.
It was nice to use your products - 5210, 3310, 3210, 5010,
Windows Phone 8 is growing. Microsoft bought Nokia at the right time. Record share for Windows Phone.
