PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Buried deep within Nokia's press release about its financial results, there's a line that pretty much signals the end of one of the most popular and successful mobile operating systems in history. With Nokia retiring its use, Symbian is no more.

And how is that now different from there newest rounding error market share? It isn't and you just confirmed that the software is the problem, not the hardware. So do european carriers who where very verbose in suggesting Nokia to make a Lumia running Android.


I don't think the software is the issue either. Windows Phone has one of the highest satisfaction ratings across any ecosystem. There simply is an awareness problem and retail channel issue, which is slowly being solved as carriers grow more faith in Nokia.

A year ago VZW turned Nokia down for a flagship, this year, VZW will carry a Lumia flagship. The brand is beginning to solidify.

If you cant see the bigger picture, that's on you, but also according to you Nokia is supposedly dying after having two solid financial quarters.

And yet noibdy buys it.

http://www.businessinsider.com/changewave-on-android-and-windows-ph...

iPhone: 71%
Android: 49%
WP: 53%

Yean, half of those 500k Lumia user in northern US where changewave is active like there WP. A turning point that changes everything (not)!

There simply is an awareness problem


After this MASSIVE marketing splash? In Microsoft's home region? With the by far biggest marketing budget ever spend on a phone launch?

Yeah, that must be the reason *roll eye*


retail channel issues


Like customers not buying cause they like iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Bada more. At least finally WP wins against the discountinued Symbian. Success! Turn around point!


If you cant see the bigger picture, that's on you


Munch's The Scream? We see it. Loud and visible.
