One thing we can learn from Microsoft... How to screw a best company like Nokia.. Wish I had money to buy Nokia
Nokia = Symbian. When Nokia killed Symbian for Win OS, they were dead. Nokia, Please bring Symbian OS.
Make sense. Windows Mobile can scale down to sub-$100 devices so there is no reason to use Android on low-end Nokia devices. Don't know whoes stupid idea was it in the 1st place.
Never WP for me, 17 Jul 2014I will never buy Windows phones. Can you hear me, Microsoft? I don't think Satya care since he is a cloud and software guy. He will put focus on developing X-box games, apps, software & cloud computing.
I predict he plans to sell-off hardware business such as X-Box console, Surface Tablet, and of course Lumia Smartphone.
Neuron, 17 Jul 2014Bring Back symbian The best indeed +1111. Still rocking with my Nokia E5 since last 3 years. Best phone with battery back up for 2+ days. Used only Nokia Symbian phones for last 12 years.
AnonD-56158, 17 Jul 2014Nokia X was a failure. It would have succeed if nokia have gone full blown android.Once Nokia were taken over by MS anything to with Android was doomed. I think everyone including Flop realised that for Nokia to survive they needed to embrace Android and he could no longer defend otherwise. Hence, why MS took over. Now he can kill it with his true paymasters all along blessings publicly. What I didn't expect was 18,000 more redundancies. Flop must be so proud for achieving his goal of making Nokia unique. He single handedly as an inside stooge at Nokia for MS destroyed them for MS. Nokia are unique now alright; unique for the highest number of redundancies in the mobile market place! Congratulations Flop, you and your paymasters can all celebrate your great success at the expense of over 20000 jobs lost in total.
Stick to Android guys. I trust Samsung, LG, and Oppo phones more than Microsoft phones.
nokia start to make very bad phone costumer not like to purchase that plastic case for soap with win8 o.s.g.elop put nokia in grave,tombstone is win8.
I don't even know what to say Nokia was a company like no other it was the best phone manufacturer ever I have always laved Nokia and I steel be loving it even though I'm not using a Nokia device but Microsoft I just hate it more and more with each day for ruining Nokia
NokiaX was stillborn anyway.
Most people doesn't want that Metor/Modern UI, whether it's running on AOSP or Winphone.
And why should someone choose Microsoft Android fork, when there is so many choices for Android, when they don't want anything else from M$.
HAHAHA he gets US$18 million as salary bonus and stock options but for what ?? to cut 18000 jobs? funny management he should resign immediately Microsoft will save $18 Million and employ all those sacked people. or take US $1 as salary if he really cares about company and staff
Microsoft insane...dont know where they trying to go in Mobile Market, this will effect me not to buy a Microsoft r Nokia Handset Ever again...... R.I.P Nokia
The only good side of this is that there won't be another Nokia Android. The downside is everything else about this! 18,000 people will be unemployed by this. Hopefully some of them can be integrated into other roles, but that number is still way too high! What the hell are they thinking?? Severance package be damned, that's still bull!
this is what happens to all who sleep with the US Devil , what did they expect .even countries who deal with th US will pay in the end .
