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.

Yes I work for a large gambling company in the UK and I have been numerous releases of the Content Management System. I actually know a thing or two about release management which is a science in itself.

Anyway what has it got to do with me whether they have released or not? ad hominem attack ... really f--king weak.

At the end of the day until Jolla isn't released, it isn't a proven product and therefore won't be picked up by a manufacturer.

You can talk about planning and their vision and all the rest ... it isn't released yet.

When they get to version 1 I will take notice.

I am awaiting your reply ... which is probably a load of bullshit.

You started trolling about them releasing anything and being a failure, but you can talk about failure or success only after their release plays out. Before that - it's completely pointless.

Apparently trolling is disagreeing with you.

It is because Jolla haven't released anything. If they don't release anything then they don't have a product ... this is like pretty much fact.

Then you made it out that I haven't released anything. I have worked for 4 companies that have released various versions of their software. I have worked through the night to release things on time.

I don't think you really know anything about release cycles, release management etc etc etc.

I just think you are a very weak and predictable troll.

Wtf? Work on any project of a reasonable size. Say some bullshit like that and you will likely be pink slipped before noon.

You project is a failure until you release it. This is why you work so hard to get it out of the door.

It isn't unfair to criticize Jolla for moving rather slowly. How long do you think their slim window of opportunity in emerging markets will last?
