  • Nokia Has Great Upside, Contrarians Buy Research In Motion [View article]
    I am a Samsung Droid Charge user with Verizon. My contract will be up the first of next year. There is no question in my mind that I will switch from Samsung to Nokia as soon as the contract runs out or if Verizon offers a deal to change over before that. So I guess what I'm thinking that there are many people that will do the same as me.

  • Nokia's (NOK) Lumia 900 has sold well via AT&T (T), but hasn't been a smash hit, says CNET's Roger Cheng. Online orders began falling in May, and dropped below those for other Windows Phone (MSFT) models. On Amazon, the black version of the 900 has fallen to #8 on the bestseller list, though reviewers still give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Best Buy's mobile chief has offered a similar take on the 900, but thinks Windows Phone sales will pick up with the release of Windows 8, which sports a similar UI.  [View news story]
    The reference to Amazon and the 900 fallen to #8.........Is that because there not selling very many on Verizon Wireless. Not a fair comparison I don't think......

    The mobile chief at Best Buy has it right. Nokia's sales will explode when Verizon comes on board. Also when the New Win 8 Pureview shows up there will be a big demand. I'm locked into another 6 months of contract and have a Droid Charge. I'm just one that has a Samsung that will go with Nokia once Verizon picks them up.

  • Nokia's (NOK) Lumia 900 is a "very decent seller" at Best Buy (BBY), claims mobile VP Scott Anderson, but it isn't selling nearly as well as some Android (GOOG) models. He adds pre-orders for Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy S III have exceeded expectations, and that HTC's EVO 4G LTE, which runs on Sprint's (S) network, has also seen strong pre-orders. Pac Crest recently claimed the Lumia 900 is doing good business.  [View news story]
    How can anyone compare sales between Samsung, iPhone and Nokia unless the comparison made between the three that it also states the number of carriers for each and what is projected. I think Nokia is on the right track and will show exceptional sales figures in the fourth quarter. I want the Pureview 808 running Win 8 sold by Verizon, is that a pipe dream?

    I have a Samsung Droid and not very happy with it. I also am running Windows 7 on my desktop which will upgrade to Windows 8 as soon as it comes out. I have another 6 months to go on my contract and at that time I will go with a Nokia Win 8 Phone. When I last checked the only place I could get a Windows 7 phone by Nokia was through AT&T which is not in my area, just Verizon Wireless. So when the numbers are crunched and they say that Nokia 900 is doing ok I think it's because I haven't seen them in Sams or WalMart or other stores. When that happens I'd like to see the numbers again when Verizon starts selling them and by that time I'll have my phone. I even heard that the Pureview 808 will be coming to North America running Windows 8 but didn't find out what it would be called.
