PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless How many N9's did Nokia sell, and how many Lumias did Nokia sell? It's an interesting thing to ponder, because estimates by Tomi T. Ahonen seem to indicate that, despite decidedly undermarketing the thing, the N9 faired considerably better in the marketplace than the Lumia did.

I agree that it is too early to dump him. And I don't even like him. (;

Nokia did a great job bringing a handset to market in 6 months. And they are still pumping out new models.

I disagree that there is any reason for them, RIM, Sprint, or anyone else to be bought in order for the OS to succeed. Just the opposite, Apple and RIM notwithstanding.

If the OS is capable of succeeding then it doesn't need its own carrier, handset maker or other support system to become successful. It might, or might not, acquire those things through success but not as a prerequisite to success.

A synergy comes into being when two competencies catalyze each other. Not when a rocket pulls a rock into orbit.
