Thats what happens when you are constantly a generation behind with your hardware tech
The yet unreleased flagship 930 will be basically S4 specwise with a worse OS and much higher price
Kyembe, 29 Apr 2014Whom do you think will be next?Looking at the current trend, it seems Blackberry would be next in line. I am writing this without any feelings (hate/sad) towards blackberry. Blackberry fans - please do not take this personally. I would be happy for BB to come out of this downward spiral though.
NoNickName, 29 Apr 2014Since MS is buying Nokia, does that mean the Asha brand is gone? I'm pretty sure Asha brought ... moreLol what? Big part of what profit? Their phone business lost 326 million dollars, in one quarter.

Since MS is buying Nokia, does that mean the Asha brand is gone? I'm pretty sure Asha brought in a big part of that profit, many people love these types of phones in developing countries.
We all are waiting for your new innings...and now both Microsoft and NoKia Ceo are indians...As i am being from india so wish them all the best...But wants to see Nokia rise again
Thats a very big decrease in phone sales, once again proves that Nokia been selling only cheap Lumias, even hardcore Nokia fanboys does not buy high end Lumia, they know deep inside that its just not good enough.
WP8.1 looks promising but i still think BB10 should have been the third OS/ecosystem, it doesnt stand back from Android or iOS in the ways WP does, it even runs Android apps.
I would already have a cheap Lumia if they had LED flash, i simply do not know how to use a phone without. Sure led flash makes no miracles for the quality but the alternative is to not take the photo at all. I know many people looking for cheap phones who didnt buy non-Lumia Nokia phones for the same reason. Nokia got it backwards, its the flagship phones with good sensors that dont need LED, they can take good photos without while an Asha/Lumia520 cannot even take an ok photo under well lit indoor conditions.
I think its good that Nokia phones are gone, its been years since they made anything great, the N9 was ok but we have to go all the way back to 2009 to find a great phone, the N900 that is.
Thanks for that insightful remark. A pity Nokia is no more (at least, not as we know it). The Microsoft deal bailed them out for a long time, but it's a matter of opinion whether a change to Android would have rescued Nokia loner-term.
Perhaps if WP was more functional, had better and regular updates and had been assigned a decent and obvious priority by Microsoft - instead of being relegated to something they did in their spare time by throwing huge sums of money around rather than innovating and creating excitement - Nokia would be doing better.
I've got an 820 as a backup phone and would love a 1520, but no network in the UK seems to offer them, it's too expensive and it clearly lacks any kind of functionality next to a HTC One Max or Galaxy Note 3. I couldn't stick with a Windows Phone for 2 years, no way, even though I really like them.
