PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia has posted its quarterly results for the first quarter of 2013, and just like the quarters that came before, there's not a whole lot of good news in there. The rise in Lumia sales still can't even dream of making up for the sales drop in Symbian phones, and when broken down in versions, the sales figures for Windows Phone 8 Lumias in particular are very disappointing. In North America, Nokia is getting slaughtered.

They are announcing the first device in May:

Their Team did fail otherwise the product would be out now instead of Nokia using Windows Phone.


Totally unconvincing. Nokia is using Windows Phone because MS gave a few billions to key people there, who cared about filling the pockets in short term, and didn't care about company success long term. They didn't abandon Meego because of any lack of technical merits. Of course they'll never explicitly tell you their motives.

Except they are making profit and growing sales slowly which is better than what Jolla have accomplished so far .. which is not releasing anything.

Jolla team had years to actually make something and didn't do anything until they left Nokia and then try to make Android Compatibility a big thing ... might as well buy Android then!

Try again.

Did you release anything yet? Or did you plan it? You didn't release and didn't plan. Did you fail? By your logic yes - you didn't release anything. Right? Wrong, since you didn't even plan. Jolla planned, and are implementing the plan accordingly. So you can't say whether they failed at all. Whether they'll succeed after the release - time will tell.

Jolla team had years to actually make something

They aren't making "something", they are making quality products. And how could they have years, if it's a recent startup? Straighten up your facts first.
