Don't just blame Elop. Blame Nokia as well. Because if it's not for Nokia's incompetence this would have never happened. Nokia is the best smartphone manufacturer run by the most stupid management in the world.
shahzaibnasar, 05 Dec 2013RIP Nokia . you cheated with you loyal customers , shattered everything we had for you but now... moreyou sound like a girl who just broke up with your bald boyfriend because he cheated on you for some bald girl with STD..
A total disgrace!
An obvious case of corporate fraud with an 18 million dollar payoff for Elop at the end, and nobody does anything about it. Back-handers all around, eh boys?
I went into my phone shop yesterday and saw only one Nokia Windows phone amongst all the Android phones from different manufacturers displayed there. A few years ago Nokia dominated every phone shop's window.
Moral of the story: never hire an ex-Microsoft director as your CEO unless you want to be asset-stripped and your key assets given to Microsoft for a pittance!
The EU commision feels so weak when it comes to protecting EU business interest.
You all sound like highschool girls crying over a phone manufacturer who doesnt give a sh:t about you,Nokia sold their mobile section not the entire company.im a Network Technician for a really big Telecoms company in Australia and Nokia own most of the gsm towers here and im pretty sure they are getting more money out of it.
Getting Nokia with Stephen Elop as a side effect. I think its bad trade for Microsoft.
Meego, symbian, Nokia, I will miss all of them.
I know this might Sounds insane but it's true. Nokia so the future of android and saw no hope for mergo, so they had to do something like invent a OS capable of beating android. and windows was the only hope. yu wil see in the future to come that Nokia did a good move buy taking this deal. android might die in the future
Congratulation Mr. Flop,
You destroyed the biggest legendary phone nation.
Blame the dump Finnish. You simply allowed to a spy to smash your glory.
SHAME ON YOU.
I'm so sad.
Yes you are right- It was all a strategy by Microsoft to acquire nokia so that they can compete with apple and damn-sung phones. Everybody knew that Nokia was the only company having potential of beating apple and army of androids-
This was already planned by Stephen Elop since he was Nokia's CEO. I mean, killing Meego, then releasing sh*ty Windows 7 phones (not at the same level than Android to be real competitors), causing Nokia's lowest sales ever and its bankruptcy, and finally "saving" Nokia by buying it ¬¬ I hate Eloph so bad. Poor Nokia, RIP.
Good bye nokia, it was nice knowing you...
Still have my E50 & N80....

Seriously.. its not like the quality of the Nokia phones (under Microsoft) is inferior to the quality when Nokia is still owned by the Finns
as long as I can enjoy my Lumia dun care who owns the Nokia brand.. its not like they give me money monthly anyway so it doesnt really matter.
