PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Stephen Elop only has a few months to show he can turn Nokia around if he is to survive but the new smartphone is unlikely to woo customers back from Apple and Samsung. Investors and analysts say the chief executive has until early 2013 to prove he made the right choice by partnering with Microsoft Windows or his future at the loss-making company will be called into question." Well, I'll be doing my part. I'm buying a 920.

Nokia only has a few more years to live before some other company guts it apart for patents and valuables. The market wants iPhones and Galaxy smartphones now.

Nokia is going the way of the Amiga.

I was thinking the same thing, and in both cases, it was because the CEO was a giant douche.

Nokia should just dump him, and hire back all the Jolla people and control their own platform again. With how much buzz they received, there obviously is a lot of interest in a third mobile platform that isn't a locked down nightmare like iPhone or WPx.

The problem is that as of today Nokia is an unstoppable sinking ship. Any company with good products and choice will prevent to come on board under this conditions. Even Microsoft was moving away from Nokia and moved closer to Samsung and HTC to not be dragged into the downwards-spiral Elop and his mates keep on to accelerate.

While a year back Nokia had still a strong stand what is left of today are mostly problems. Reading about Nokia's still strong stand in the 3th world is crazy when in fact there its either about dumpphones like Asha or N8 and N9 as high-end smartphones (no, ther are NO Lumia offered/sold there) which both got irreversible aborted. The only still swimming boat left is S40 but there investment was drastical reduced. That single choice is losing ground too with Android going future down to low-end and Nokia decreasing investment to focus on Lumia.

What is left is the need to split that company.
