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.

I don't know that Nokia + Android = success.
Android ain't working out for HTC (compare this year's HTC earnings to last year's). In fact, Android is only working out for Samsung.


HTC != Nokia. Nokia is known for hardware quality, ie reliability and longevity of a Nokia phone. Nokia is better at designing and producing quality smart phone(look at N9) and their feature phones are known to be of top quality. So going to Android route is guaranteed a success, since Nokia is very well-known brand and the Android name is everywhere. The reason why people buying phones here(at least in my country), is because a phone's OS is Android, regardless of the manufacturer, the evidence is that we now have LG, and a lot of less known brands and local brands that are in the hands of the user because of Android, and Nokia wasn't ONE among them. So Nokia made itself irrelevant in the smartphone era. While they do produce Smartphones with Symbian, but those are VERY expensive, and people now starting to look to cheaper smartphones. I think Nokia did not do their market research.
