I feel depressed since I read the news in the morning...how is that going to affect Nokia in the future we will have to wait & see
Heart breaking news....my dream will be dream for ever that i wanted to use Nokia android(droid pureview).
last chance for nokia and only life line left atlast nokia did it hope nokia could come back to life
nokia should have keep alive the sympian.if they improved instead of kill the symbian , still they wouldbe first. and i never have gone to android.
hey microsoft's what is your problem with my nokia phones?! :)
i was about to buy an n9, they came and killed meego.
im about to buying an asha 501, they came and killing asha 1.0
because im sure this will happen soon (and there will be a nokia 420 winphone for 100usd end of year. or smthing like that )
and this over, 03 Sep 2013i just dont understand this... why aren't they just got android?????? can sombody pls explain ... moreDo people not understand that Nokia does not use Android because Google prevented him? This happened because Nokia was bankrupt and needed to improve their software which was the basis of their poor sales! and was Microsoft who helped Nokia, Google (haughtiness) it had rejected for having the map service like Google!
As soon as Nokia tied up with Windows phone o/s this was a done deal. All Microsoft had to do was watch the share price bomb and collect the spoils (at a greatly reduced price). Could see it coming from miles off.....
it's a shame but they were either going to shrink, go bust or have to merge.
If Nokia had choosen to go with Android then it would have been atleast a 20 billion worth company today...rubbing shoulders with samsung....and microsoft would not have money to buy nokia. For this reason Stefan Trogen Elope did not wanted nokia to go with android at any cost......foolish nokia management made the biggest mistake of their life by taking Trogen Elope who fu***d Nokia, brought it down and now the owner of Nokia!! Sad day for nokia fans all over the world!!
I have been your loyal fan since beginning,but as the time passed by you disappointed me.No it wasn't the WP,no it wasn't even the symbian..... it was you Nokia,you forgot how to make the phones.
Now MS will be rolling in the mud with your name,or at least with what remain of that.
Anish9722, 03 Sep 2013Nooooooooooooooooo.... What will Happen to the S40 OS ?Yep. That's exactly what I'm concerned about too.
S40 is fantastic. Such an easy-to-use, stable platform.
i just dont understand this... why aren't they just got android?????? can sombody pls explain this????????
This news made me sad.
The company once capable of creating beautiful operating system on their own and were enough near to go ahead and launch a desktop os as they already had user space is now nothing but just a h/w manufacturer and is being purchased by some other company who plan and want to increase the sales of their existing products by integrating in os and putting it onto Nokia.
I am really really sad and not happy with this merger. Its like all the efforts and hard-work turned into dust.
To the Nokia Board of Directors you followed the wrong path guys since you planned to end your S/w unit instead of modifying and relaunching it and here today we end our hope that you will take Meego back. :'(
