  • A Tablet? Really Nokia? [View article]
    I think you are another one that is not understanding Nokia strategy. How many windows pc exist in the business world? let's imagine on the next 2/3 years a quarter of them change theirs machines to WIN RT. who is going to be first choice for most of them? Nokia. Elop is building a foundation for a the biggest ecosystem the world has ever seen.

  • Nokia Gets Ready To Board The Windows RT Pain Train [View article]
    So many people said what a mistake Nokia going to WP8 instead of Android and now they are proving they were right. I'm sure if Nokia decided to go to WIN-RT they going to build competitive machines and one year after you all are going to write articles saying what a great move

  • Hope for Windows Phone in W. Europe, SE Asia? [View news story]
    I really don't understand why people complaint with Microsoft. They are building a good base for the future and they don't want repeat mistakes of the pass. When W8, WP8, Xbox & Win RT all working together it will be impossible for the competition to have the same level of ecosystem. Microsoft wants to make this right

  • Telef√≥nica Puts Its Weight Behind Nokia [View article]
    @Abu

    Thanks for this great piece of information. You are right, last month my Lumia 800 couldn't connect to the internet. I got into a O2 shop in UK and the three sales people working didn't know how to use the phone. After 30 minutes trying, they had to make a phone call to another shop to sort this out. I'm quiet sure none of this sales people would recommend a Windows phone to any costumer calling at this shop.

  • Android (GOOG) refuses to slow down, Windows Phone (MSFT, NOK) continues making modest progress, and the gap between the iPhone's (AAPL) U.S. and European numbers continues to widen. Those are some of the takeaways from Kantar's latest smartphone share data. For the March-May period, Android's U.S. share is pegged at 52% (+10 bps Y/Y), its EU5 share at 70.4% (+1010 bps), and its Chinese share at 71.5% (no Y/Y data). The iPhone's U.S. share is at 41.9% (+350 bps), its EU5 share at 17.8% (-140 bps), and its Chinese share at 23.6%. Windows Phone's U.S. share is at 4.6% (+90 bps), its EU5 share at 6.8% (+250 bps), and its Chinese share at 2.9%. IDC estimated Android (stronger in emerging markets) had a 75% global share in Q1, the iPhone 17.3%, and Windows Phone 3.2%. [View news story]
    I think you are right but in my opinion the big problem of Nokia is they are rushing out to many higher end phones, every quarter is a new model.
    I'm due to upgrade my Lumia 800 and I was thinking to get the Lumia 925 but I'm now waiting to see what is going to be announced on 11th July but even so why would I get this phone when in a few months they are coming with Lumia 1020?

  • So Much For BlackBerry Killing Nokia [View article]
    @solucky
    I may be wrong but I think you are mixing two different things. If I'm write when you say 4,6% is market share but it it doesn't mean Nokia has sold less units.

  • BlackBerry Vs. Nokia Is Like Audi Vs. Kia [View article]
    I just think that an article where the Author needs to defend so many time cannot be that good. Of course he doesn't like Nokia and all he can talk about is about bad points even some of them are not correct. Nokia is here to stay but BBRY I hope so.

  • Nokia: A Speculative Play - Not An Investment [View article]
    I think the success of Nokia Lumia is depending on the success of WP8. Most WP8 reviews I've read has been very positive and the only negativity is the ecosystem. With the Samsung and HTC also lunching WP8 I believe is a matter of time until ecosystem is still been a problem and Nokia will lead WP8 in the market.

  • "With each new generation of Windows Phone, Microsoft not only closes the gap with iOS and Android in important ways, but it also differentiates in important ways," says The Verge in a fairly positive review of Windows Phone 8 (MSFT). It also declares the OS to have the best home screen of any platform, and likes its built-in Office and cloud apps. But it's not crazy about the Nokia-powered (NOK) Maps app, and says there are still "countless annoyances" that hurt the user experience. (yesterday: I, II[View news story]
    The problem it's The Verge has used HTC windows phone on this review as we know it look like a toy when compared with Lumia 920

    It's a bit strange what they say about the Nokia-powered Maps when companies like amazon, BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Pioneer and Garmin think different
