AnonD-167223, 03 Sep 2013This is why i say people judge wp8 without even actually using using it.....who says i didnt use WP8. I have Lumia 920 and many simple things you cant do.
wow,good news for wp8 lover like me,.,now microsoft have no reasons for holding back, they will initiate the full scale and full power of wp8, good job microsoft and nokia,..
Let's hope this take over would increase competition between cell phone brands which would be beneficial for the customers
How many years in jail can get Elop for Hostile takeover ? So stephen elop is a trojan horse...This transaction should be blocked! Ridiculous price, I think they forgot about one zero.
AnonD-59657, 03 Sep 2013We should thank to Stephen Elop for his effort to combine Nokia with Microsoft.
Most probably... more"Elop, a Canadian hired by Nokia in 2010 from Microsoft, has been one of the favourites to take over as Microsoft chief when Ballmer steps down".
Doing the rounds in the News already.
Rad K, 03 Sep 2013Now we are going to see 'Microsoft Lumia' smartphones, but i am very curious to know if MS wil... moreIt will,it's in official announcement...and for the record,they could still use nokia brand as they have also licensed that for 10 years....
goodbye, 03 Sep 2013goodbye nokia.thanks for your amazing phones for so many years. may your soul rest in peace.(n... moreNokia will become the mobile phone brand of Microsoft. Like we have Sony Xperias, we will now have Microsoft Nokias.
AnonD-92238, 03 Sep 2013Don't even believe in Microsoft.....m using Lumia 520, it's laggier than s duos....even my 580... moreAnother fanboi... Joking that Lumia 520 lags and galaxy duos is sooooper fast ;P
Now we are going to see 'Microsoft Lumia' smartphones, but i am very curious to know if MS will still license its OS to other OEMs, or keep it for itself only like Apple.
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2013No I am not an employee of Ms, neither I am Stephen Elop. But the fact is I know the potential... moreCan I say something. How is Windows Phone OS better or any different that iOS? If only Apple makes iOS devices and now only MS will make WP devices, what is the difference between the two? How will MS compete with Apple's superior and more matured OS with Nokia's hardware expertise alone? The reason why Windows desktop OS is widely used is because it was adopted by lots of manufacture. Android is turning to be the mobile version of desktop Windows.
Great news. Now the Nokia boys can develop Sailfish OS and openly take over Jolla. New beginning, can't wait.
AnonD-80334, 03 Sep 2013RIP Nokia. If survival is the only reason to hand over Phone unit to MS then we fans of Nokia ... moreFrom the beginning the main problem to saw a Nokia Android phone was Google itself. The thing is Google wanted total control of the Nokia software and services like Nokia Maps, Drive, etc... or the other option from Google was to ban Nokia software and place only Google services. See that Nokia is not only phones and hardware, there is also software and services. Those services like Nokia Drive, Maps, etc are present in WP.
We should thank to Stephen Elop for his effort to combine Nokia with Microsoft.
Most probably Stephen will replace Steve Ballmer to be the new CEO for Microsoft.
