PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia just posted its quarterly results - including shipped devices - and it's not looking good. Massive losses, sales dropping, and no growth in Lumia sales in the US. The company is losing money hand-over-fist, and with Windows Phone 8 still months away, the company warns the next quarter will be just as bad.

...that's what happens when you try to force something down people's throat that NOBODY wants.

Nokia + Android = win. This is such a simple formula, IF they executed it in the beginning, they'd be the biggest smartphone maker by far. Everyone said this is the path to success, but no, Nokia decided to blindly follow Elop's path to failure. Now look at what's happening!

If Nokia continues down the titanic path with MS, they'll just be an interesting footnote in the history of cellphones, nothing more. And that would be a damn shame for all of those who worked so hard to get this once-great company on top. :-(
