There are people here who pretends to be nokia fans but they are lagdroid fanatics ina reality. They are just jealous with this merger. They are now starting to feel the competition. Whooooo
I just hope MS wont close Nokia factories in Finland... as a Finn I feel pretty sad, thanks Nokia for saving Finland back in 90's economy crisis.

This is the end for us, Nokia fans. I opened the browser to see any news on Nokia mobiles or rumoured Phablets but was heart broken to read this acquisition news.. I don't know which mobile I will buy next :(

Relax people! We are just average consumers. We will continue to use the product if it is still available. If not, try to adapt to other alternatives. Is not like your world going to collapse just because MS-Nokia. The world continues to spin. For those who appreciate Lumia alot, do keep your phones as long as you can because the branding of Nokia Lumia may just be gone forever. For those who are on Android or other OSes, you no longer need to bash Nokia because Nokia will not be around any longer. So, just enjoy what you are having. Peace!
PS: I do miss this phone though....
People could see this Plan made out by Microsoft from the Begining,They needed a Big name to save them an chose Nokia,an the Nokia Board needed investment as Symbian was not getting Advanced as Quick as the the iPhone an Android,so when Mr Elop was chosen as Chairman at Nokia,a old employee at Microsoft,then from then people started saying that Microsoft would end up taking over Nokia,just to Improve there Portfolio as Microsoft was not a Popular than Apple,in the PC an Smartphone Markets,the Shares at Nokia decline Rapidly an then,We All saw its going to Happen,Microsoft steps in an Overtakes Nokia,but Windows is to Restricted to be Succesful,an the Tiles so Annoying,o.k they might create good Camera phones at Nokia,but is the ease of use that they have got to change,an stop copying the Apple iPhones with no micro sd card slots an no removable battery,thats why Samsung as become so Popular than Nokia
that's rubish. End of the sales of M$ crap and Nokia's. Failure of the two arrogant giants.
This news ruined my day. My dream of owning a nokia running on android just goes down the drain. Elop simply plush it down. I believe Mr. Elop planned this to happen the day he works at Nokia. Totally hated MS for doing this.
