There will never be another Nokia smartphone
"The Nokia brand name, one of the most storied marks in mobile, will never grace another smartphone.
Under the terms of Microsoft's $7.2 billion acquisition of Nokia's devices and services division, the "Asha" and "Lumia" trademarks will transfer to Redmond, but the "Nokia" mark will remain property of the Finnish company, and may only be used on featurephones under a 10-year license agreement. That means any future Windows Phones built by the newest division of Microsoft will be Microsoft-branded — and that Nokia has said its goodbyes to a smartphone market it once helped to create."

So why Elop lie ? Cant they buy Nokia at once pay ~ $12 billion in ~ 2010 ? Why he said NO Android ? Now we know why...They have time for WP, for make phones with this buggy os (WP 7.X) ? If they have time for WP they it's obvious that they have time for Android. In 2011 they SHOULD make phones with Anroid not with WP, they would be probably in second place in Android (if people say "they are so good", so they will be good in Android). Why ? Becasue if they focus one one OS with huge market share they will have good result in sale, they have patents and own solutions...
Better way would be make phones with Android, which was still rapidly growing and only add phones with WP like LG or Samsung. Why not Android and WP...becasue ELop was CEO...any other CEO will choose A + WP or A + MeeGo or even WP + MeeGo but not only one OS, not WP, any other company choose only WP ?!
No! Why ? Because only Nokia has former employee of MS as own boss!
Elop have one mission buy Nokia, why they dont even try Android ?! Even if someone dont like this system it doesn't matter, company has to make money, not promote foreign products.
Many people loves Nokia, Elop know if they make even one phone with Android like a 808/920 they will sale 8, 10, 15 million (popular brand, most popular OS and thier own solutions like PV). Top Nokia smartphones with better OS will have huge sale. Elop was scared about potential success of Nokia phone with Android, how they destroyed MeeGo shows their attitude = buy very cheap Nokia patents, buy cheap the best brand in mobile phones.
R.I.P. Nokia now is just one of many MS products like Zune, Xbox etc. WP, W8, RT, Zune shows that MS make often many mistakes. If they make mingled 808 with 920 made to Android (MeeGo)... :D
such sad news. i was a nokia fan but now I use samsung. my very first phone was a nokia but after years of being with them i know ive made the right choice to come over to android. Elop is the cancer that killed nokia
frh, 03 Sep 2013Can I say something. How is Windows Phone OS better or any different that iOS? If only Apple m... moreFair comments. MS have not been able to make any significant progress in the mobile market for years. There own previous two phones were a complete disaster. Well done Flop. You have sucessfully destroyed the world's leading phone manufacturer single handedly. Nokia are certainly unique now and for all the wrong reasons! Not like you were not warned repeatedly is it Flop.
MS\Nokia will be lucky if they can give their devices away soon.
