PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Things ain't going well for Nokia. Their quarterly results are - again - a disaster, and Lumia sales have dropped 28% (50% if you look at just the US). Windows Phone 8 is really going to be a make-it-or-break-it kind of thing. If it doesn't go well, the company might consider going back to focussing on rubber boots.

The new Lumias and Windows Phone 8 can be a good product, but NOT in this price range. Profits are made by volume, but this is something that everybody knows. Except Nokia, maybe. Wanna win? Release quickly cheap WinPhone8 devices.

That isn't possible. Windows Phone requires powerful hardware underneath. Nokia tried to create cheap WP device, and it ended up horribly with said device not being able to run even the Angry Birds.

Actually WinP7 devices from Nokia had good performance.

But PR disadvantage in perceived one. "Quad core MUST be faster than single core, right?"

But than, Lumia 920 is priced like iPhone, but have lower specs, not to even mention SIII from Samsung....

So again Lumias will LACK performance compared to others.
