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.

So now they have a phone OS that they have special rights to that other handset makers don't.

Except that they failed to get the main element they desperately needed - differentiating factor. There is none.(Unfortunately hardware is not enough for a distinctive feel)
I like Nokia Lumia's hardware, but buying it only because it has a polycarbonate unibody?


But wait! Wasn't that going to be the problem that would kill Android when Google bid for Motorola? o-:)

Maybe Moto will become the vanilla ODM? And everyone else will have the ability to differentiate in software as well as hardware.
