    MSFT WinPho7 false start was likely a death blow for Nokia (NOK). Optimistic analysts are doubting recovery chances http://goo.gl/SJZs5.

    • Dennis Baker: From January the same analyst "it's the beginning of a long road back for Nokia" http://on.wsj.com/VcCqL5 Doubt creeps in.

    • Abrane: "Optimistic analysts are doubting recovery chances " That's exactly opposite of optomistic

    • Dennis Baker: The Optimistic analysts are doubting. The pessimistic ones have long since given up hope.

    • DavidHart: Analysts are always looking for a quick fix. In my opinion, the results of Q1 2013 will indicate if the current strategy is working.

    • Leont68: I agree David, quarter 1 of 2013 will show 1 full quarter of sales of the new lumia wp8 line.

    • Dennis Baker: You do realize this is exactly what people were saying this time last year.... only substituting wp7 for wp8... ? Same exact conversation.

    • Dennis Baker: Actually... they were excusing the poor wp7 results and suggesting the first new Lumia phones were going to 'fix' things.

    • westkite: Nokia is borrowing $1 billion, running out of money really quickly. MSFT should dump Nokia.

    • Dennis Baker: I'm not sure MSFT has a choice. They need a committed partner. Samsung is only selling WP8 as a hedge to keep NOK in check.
