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.

Where is the "wow factor" with Nokia?

I don't have a "smart phone", but if I *were* wanting to buy one, Nokia wouldn't even be on my list. Why?
Because Google, Samsung and Apple have all of the "buzz" and mindshare.

Where is Nokia's "wow factor"? Why should I buy a Nokia phone instead of an Android one or an iPhone?
What can a Nokia phone do that the others can't?
What is the Nokia "must have" feature? Do they even *have* one? ( I doubt it.)

*Those* are the questions that the Nokia execs should be asking themselves. Personally, I think Nokia is a goner and that Windows 8 will not save it.
