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.

Nokia is far from dead.


Its more a zombie. Not dead but also not alive. 4 quarters left till the head is cut off. Till then there is plenty time left to eat more brains.

In fact, it is now possible to see at least a light at the end of the tunnel.


That is the tunnel of light that is supposed to appear upon the moment of someones death. Watch out for the guardians. They will bring Nokia to a new live after death with a different core business.

Okay. I'm done replying to you. When you actually address the content of my comments then maybe a rational discussion can be had with you (maybe, not likely, I wouldn't bet on it).

Nelson - it is just talks :-) Look - your arguments really do look logical, but - we can hear any such arguments for soooo long. What Elop underestimated is, that he is ruining a Finish gold, a culture of its own. Whatever he does, it goes down anyway. So - even if your arguments might be valid, let's see how market reacts - that's the only measure, which counts.

So - see you with the next quarter results, when you can try to come up with yet another analysis, of how great Elop is strategically doing :-) They should imo have fired that man long time ago ...
