PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless European carriers are dissatisfied with the Nokia Lumia phones, Reuters has found out. According to the carriers, the Lumia phones are simply "not good enough" to compete with the iPhone and Android phones. Nobody comes into stores asking for windows phones, and one carrier executive said "if the Lumia with the same hardware came with Android in it and not Windows, it would be much easier to sell". Ouch.

Things have definitely changed. I've recently been hearing adverts on the radio pushing nokia/lumia phones. Makes me wonder how much $$$ is being dumped into marketing this stuff. I guess MS and nokia really have no choice since it seems that wp7 would plunge into total obscurity otherwise.

Yep, it's all over the TV here, bus shelters, massive roadside adverts and the whole lot. Some money being spent alright! And it still doesn't look like it's working, with most people either on an iPhone or Android device, and an obscure few with older type feature phones.
