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.

They did exactly that. Microsoft and Nokia produce WP apps like crazy. But like the argument "we just need to put 1 billion $ into marketing" it does not work out.

Its the overall product that sells, not only the number of apps. The Lumia hardware is good (or should I say the N9 hardware?), the apps are not bad either and there was the biggest marketing splash Nokia ever did for a phone. It all makes no difference. Customers just do not buy WP (not only Nokia Lumia but just any WP devices out there including those from other companies). WP is just not good enough compared to competition.
