That's the problem, after 3 years o... moreI don't think that Microsoft want Nokia to fail. What they want ( like most companies ) is dominant [client] market share, which they can leverage into their server and services businesses.
The company culture was built on the premise that excluding competition is the most effective way of building this position, since it worked with Windows on the desktop. So they try it everywhere else.
It is much the same with Apple and Sony, for example, except they attempt to own their customers more through hardware lock-in, so generally their software development reacts well to real issues. Microsoft generally does not have the hardware lock mechanism (XBox excluded), so they use their software to exclude competition. Sadly, this tends to result in their development efforts addressing their revenue needs above customer needs.
I like Nokia as a hardware company, but didn't like Symbian, and don't like Windows. I would have preferred them to continue with Meego or adopt Android, and shall not consider buying Nokia again until they do offer an open, interoperable software platform.
Fools like me r still buying lumia phones.
i bought lumia 920 at 35k,
and now if i want to sell , only max 13k i can get.
lumia1020 can be only best camera phone.
but also worst smartphone of 2013.
there is no notification pannel, no opera mini, no customization , no proper file manager, no proper videp player , no true multitasking , IE browser not up to the mark, no proper downloader ,
interface is smooth but not that fast, can't change theme, can't change ui , no asphalt8:airborn, mc5 wil came, no update in mc4, no gangstar vegas and rio, no gta3,vc. , no subway .
lots of usefull apps from ios,android are not on wp8

i can say, my money totally wasted,
plz don't go for any wp8 , they r boring like hell
ok,mistake happens only 1times
soon will buy iphone5/s4/htc one
"*just be patient with them and Microsoft*"
That's the problem, after 3 years of patience there is no more time, no more sales,no more trust, no more... Nokia is shrinking to China and dying on the way and the worst part is that Microsoft thasn't seem to change or care. People demand in the update ABC features and they bring EFG feature, so the critical problems remain always unsolved. Like up to now the future update will solve nothing, it is like they want Nokia to fail.

Second it's called a STARTphone it's not a ordinary phone. I believe your stuck in the 90's, quit trolling. If your looking for a basic phone just to make calls, go buy those old Nokia flipphones. I believe that's what your looking for. You'll be waisting your money buying these phones as your not using these phones to there true potential.

But some don't know it can be done and some DO care, for example I have a Zedge profile with some Symbian and S40 themes, 600000 theme downloads in a year and a half. And they aren't even among the most downloaded themes. People still download S60v3 themes too, and those phones are quite old now. As for stability issues, my Symbian phones actually run faster when I apply a theme that changes all icons. Don't know about Android. Well, as for PC, I have a dark theme, moved my taskbar to the left, changed a few icons... And yeah, I have a clock widget too. :-) I really have to try WP8 before I decide (when I tried an iPhone I hated it after 5 minutes, zero options) but I haven't even seen one in real life yet. Just changing the color of the tiles is barely enough, and apparently there's a lot of other "normal phone" options missing too and Microsoft is too lazy to add them.
I want to purchase this phon bt there is no available in nepal
Customization is way overrated. Nobody ever customized anything on their PC. At most, people only have a clock widget or sticky notes widget on their PC. WP8 has enough customization for that. WP8 works out of the box like iPhones, most people care more about that than extreme customization with stability issues.

I have the phone and I'm really underwhelmed by it. I'm coming from an Galaxy 3 and a i4 before that. I was able to explore my SG3 for hours customizing and learning the ins and outs of it. I was bored of the 1020 in bout an hour. I see its dual core because there's nothing to power. Gonna be taking this back soon i think.
Please if yu ain't a Nokia fan or user, you don't have any right to scrutinize or excoriate their product. Android users should drag their laggy feets to their section and leave Nokia alone. On the other hand, if you're a Nokia user, just be patient with them and Microsoft. I see a big and bright future for Windows phone 8 and NOKIA USERS GENERALLY.

Be cool man, don't be angry. Don't use smutty words. Everyone knows smutty words and phrases but this is not the place to use it.
When will be the next major update for Windows Phone 8?
I really admire Nokia for making a beautiful hardware but ,although it is lag free, the OS for such handset still needs a major improvement..
It is realy simple if you yhink nokia ia crap and cannot compete with the Androids then get yourself an Android ....... All androids are alike ......... I will stick to Nokia and cant wait for me 1020

Hello, when nokia windows phone options I see that's not the issue right choice, in large part due to the application number is not really much, it's only enough to meet their needs to me was, But we are a fan of nokia, nokia options of WindowsPhone want to create something new and they do not want to step on footrace configured as android, nokia have tried our best to provide the best for us, nokia 1020 is no exception, it has made a news photographer super Revolutionary, though Nokia's road test or how their supporters always bared, I were Vietnamese
