I remember the movie jurassic park when i was a kid in this. The dinosaur holding a phone ringing with nokia tune. If i'm not mistaken the phone is "5110". Ever since nokia tune is my favorite ringer. I have many good childhood memories with it, Like waiting for a call from my 1st girl friend, or some important text. Hahaha for sure I will never forget the brand nokia! Farewell nokia! Thanks for making the best phones yesterday. :)
ulads, 27 Apr 2014Were you even born or have any idea when Windows Mobile/PocketPC was awesome, unrestricted, th... moremarketing more important, samsung and apple are the two phone makers having the largest marketing budget.
dlads, 27 Apr 2014Windows mobile is utterly crap, it's restricted, cheap looking, plastic, limited, featureless ... moreWere you even born or have any idea when Windows Mobile/PocketPC was awesome, unrestricted, the best (O2), feature packed with Stylus and perfect for every business.
And then a new fruit was grown which was limited, featureless, cannot forward a SMS! WTF? then it evolved in to a gaming platform! no wonder..
The game then changed. people only wanted what their fingers could poke (or perhaps their brain can understand) - as Windows Mobile had loads to choose from.. It might turn in to the current trend or bring out a new trend - who knows! but all we hope is a better Mobile revolution!
Realize how the world has changed - rather than being blinded with gimmicks..
MaemoSymAndy, 25 Apr 2014That Iconic Tune Made Me Cry!Not only you,I felt very sad after reading that.
jom12, 26 Apr 2014The best part of the deal is Nokia retain its name 'NOKIA' after the acquisition..so Nokia can... moreCan but it isn't probably.
Your best choice is to buy a Jolla phone from ex Nokia employees.
A Xboxone from your beloved last CEO of Nokia, the one and only that brought Lumia WP phones to Nokia.
Elop is now the head of MS Xbox, By buying an Xbox you support him and his work at Nokia.
Windows mobile is utterly crap, it's restricted, cheap looking, plastic, limited, featureless and has a very poor app collection.
Only people who simply don't want to be a part of android and apple need apply, I can almost guarantee that every user will hit a speed bump at some point.
The OS doesn't even have a file manager and don't get me started on the app store.
Not to mention that there literally is no way to send contacts to another device besides the usage of the badly secured outlook account, basically this means that if you lose your password and the ability to restore it then you lose all your contacts? WTF? haha ridiculous OS and ridiculous ideas = a bad phone. No wonder Nokia sold it off, they saw microsoft coming from a long way away.
Microsoft is a good company.market required 5to6k range windows phone.with expanded sd card.sp that all people use windows phone.
All those who think this deal is bad are Microsoft haters
All those who think this deal is good are Google haters
Nokia is Nokia
WP is far far better than Nokia X, Android, Maemo, Meego, Jolla etc its a well organized well performing OS
Nokia would have current Blackberry if they had pursued Meego
Microsoft is a victim of anti marketing by its competitors. It has made super good os the windows phone 8.1 . Which is far better than android. And comparable to iOS. But still its not able to hold the market share that it truly deserves. Hope this deal will give it what it truly deserves.
P.S. Particularly this phone does not need a file explorer. So please do not cry that it does not have one. This is a different OS and it works in its own way. And it works great in that way. Remember when iOS 1st launched and everybody cried that it doesn't have Bluetooth sharing. Offcourse this information was wrong.
Izit Tru Dat D Name NOKIA Wil Be Retained Afta D Deal, Geez Dat Wil Be Awesome Bcos I Swear If Its Microsoft Den Am Not Reaaly Sure Waz Gonna Hapen.
Tanks ALOP For Completin D Deal Coz We Ol Know Dat Its Ur PLAN Ol Along..
Hate Microsoft And Alop, Hate Windows..
Kudos NOKIA I Assure You Ur Path Shal Neva Be I Vain....
Just what I thought! Elop was the virus on Nokia. Years ago when I still use the Nokia n900 I have predicted this. Letting a microsoft pawn inside a company will little by little devour the entire company. Serves them right for abandoning Meego for microsoft.
Legend never dies! Nokia has sold their device and services to Microsoft. Not their brains and intilegence and the Brandname Nokia! I wish in 2016 they will collaborate with Google so All the Nexus Device will be ''NOKIA''....
Medeiros, 26 Apr 2014This Elop is a clown! He destroyed aa giant Nokia and now, after such incompetence he is hired... moreWas he really such a clown? Not that I am defending him in any way whatsoever but who employed him before Nokia? Microsoft no less and who does he work for now? He is laughing all the way to the bank and so are MS. Who effectively got Nokia on the cheap for MS? I despise him utterly but cannot deny what he did. My heart goes out to all the people who had to pay by losing their jobs for him.
I never forget you Nokia,
I have changed so many smart phone,but Nokia was something else that remains me my best memories
I still have few of Nokia remarkable mobile in use:
2-Nokia 1112 (2 sets)
all are working fine, some are even in original casing.
Nokia is legend , i love Nokia , my dad's first mobile was a Nokia and mine too and still have , if Android was not introduced yet , We see Nokia still holding its Crown and continue gaining success. due to its strong hardware and easy interference(easy to use) great camera quality and other multimedia functions (compared to other brands) Nokia for me still holds the crown. We salute Nokia
Zeeshan Ahmed Burdi, 26 Apr 2014and there will be like :D Microsoft Lumia 463 , Microsoft Asha 896 and this will become awesom... moreThe best part of the deal is Nokia retain its name 'NOKIA' after the acquisition..so Nokia can comeback in the near future with another os.( android or Jolla or me ego or updated symbian)
