Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Finland is Nokia. Nokia is Finland. I've traveled to quite a few number of countries this year, and the only place where I see Lumia phones is this chunk of ice that I call home. According to the Finnish business publication Taloussanomat, who references data from IDC, Q1 2013 was the first quarter where mobile phones from the South Korean handset maker Samsung outsold those designed in Espoo. If that's not alarming, I don't know what is." Ouch.

I remember being pretty happy with my Nokia N73 a few years ago. At the time it had the best camera on the market and was pretty good with email and internet for a small screen phone. Pity they didn't keep up with Symbian or I wouldn't have had to switch to Blackberry. OK, this was a bad idea in the long run, but the first Storm was way ahead of any Nokia at the time, and iPhone was just a toy for the Apple fanboys. Switched again to an S3 now, my carrier was offering it for free on my contract, no brainer really!

Yeah! Free phone! Why would you switch to a sim only contract where you don't pay for a phone each month right?

Perhaps because sim-only contracts have much higher call rates?

(Then again, at least here in Hungary, if an S3-category phone is offered for free, you'd have to take the most expensive contract with a monthly fee so high you'd be almost better off just buying the phone for full price + taking a cheap contract.)
