I'll never buy a Windows phone anyway, doesn't matter who the hardware manufacturer is. After the Nokia story, I'm having the whole picture in front of my eyes - I know who they are, these Microsoft guys... I'm also using Linux on my PC, so no Microsoft products at all.
kllerboy, 15 Jan 2014because you dont how to use windows os.......Actually it's pretty clear he was talking about the looks... And he is right.... The WP live tiles and interface looks terrible
Nokia's licence payments to Microsoft for Windows Phone are to cost it €500m more than the support payments it gets from Microsoft for using the OS.
In the company's full-year 20F filing with the SEC, published on Thursday, it predicted that for the rest of the duration of its deal with Microsoft, its licence payments to the company will be €500m ($654m) more than it receives in support.
desperate but now sony will have money for better displays for android phones
there are 2 strategies: innovate or catchup. the former takes more vision. the latter takes more money - and is also less glamourous - not to say pathetic. your windows/office money at work.
Poor sony! Hahahahha! Huawei is worth more than them! Go samsung!
We know that already! Samsung is king!! Android is the only OS for mobile computing - fully practical and we always expect too much from it!!!
Ano, 15 Jan 2014We need some other source than only Eldar Murtazin in order to verify this. I think it sounds ... moreThough I agree with your first sentence, I think, it would be great move from MS.
Biggest mistake that MS made so far was, to favor Nokia and push away the other OEMs with that. No competition in WP was what smashed WP.
Competition is good for Nokia , too. Not to make anymore sealed-handicap , huge (side) bezel devices .
Google also own Moto, but didn't favor it, and let the OEMs to fight each other. That's the way.
If Samsung make really great WP phone (like Note 3) it could bring back to life WP . That worths more than 2. bill. Right?
And if Samsung put TouchWiz with all that great functionality , no one will see the difference.
But I think that Samsung may not take the offer, because they have enough job to do with coming Tizen.
...Man Of Steel..., 15 Jan 2014Windows Phone is the worst mobile OS i've ever seen.I disagree. It's far more stable and secure then android.
The downside is, that the way it looks, sucks real bad. So if you mean that, then I agree with you. The display sucks, but it's far more stable then android.
Wow. Microsoft must be desperate. I think if MS makes Window 8 for PC and Phone somehow connect together then it would be a good OS. I own window 8 PC and WP8 but the two has nothing in common. I like WP8 UI
We need some other source than only Eldar Murtazin in order to verify this. I think it sounds strange. Microsoft is likely not to get any return of investment from such billion dollar "investments". We're talking about around 2 billion dollars here, way more than the Nokia sponsorship. Also, they got Nokia so why not use that asset to make desirable phones? They Nokia, why do they need all the others as well?
this is the one and only way windows os can get to top of all os, and it can't do that with the help of Nokia only so they need all big brands
Even if Samsung, Sony, Huawei releases a high end phone, it will be pretty much waste because their flagship droids overshadow WP8 based flagships and Microsoft is a giant company. Microsoft owns Nokia's devices and services unit and Microsoft should instead make some good Lumias at cheaper price to boost the market share of the platform rather than paying Samsung, Huawei to make crap quality WP8 based handsets. I excluded Sony because their phones are much better than Samsung or Huawei in terms of build quality.
WP8 IE Browser - Worst browsing experience ever.
WP8 Media/File Management - Locked down worse than Apple's.
...Man Of Steel..., 15 Jan 2014Windows Phone is the worst mobile OS i've ever seen.Based on what? I was iOs user and i'm happy, for lots of reasons, of having a WP smartphone.
...Man Of Steel..., 15 Jan 2014Windows Phone is the worst mobile OS i've ever seen.Yes, but money talks better than you, so finally WP8 will win !
Windows 8 for laptops is a disappointment and laptops market goes down, similar with windows for mobiles. Microsoft because it is a big company want to impose in the market. They do not listen the customers.
...Man Of Steel..., 15 Jan 2014Windows Phone is the worst mobile OS i've ever seen.I disagree. I own a Lumia and an Android tab. I found Windows phone to be relatively more stable that Android. I agree that android has a huge collection of apps. For performance, android sucks!
