PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia's vice president Bryan Biniak: "We are trying to evolve the cultural thinking [at Microsoft] to say 'time is of the essence'. Waiting until the end of your fiscal year when you need to close your targets, doesn't do us any good when I have phones to sell today." Later Biniak adds: "As a company we don't want to rely on somebody else and sit and wait for them to get it right." There was a simple solution to this problem.

pretty much that. Windows phone is ages behind Android and iOS in feaures and usability, despite it being stylish and pretty. I had mine for a while and lack of updates is really dissapointing.

Watch out--if you say that three times in front of a mirror, Nelson will come out and tell you that Nokia is doing just fine, and pull some pointless numbers from... well, somewhere, to prove it! And claim that Elop is not running the company into the ground, and that they're somehow thriving. Or something.

This has zero to do with Nokias financials and more to do with Microsoft's corporate culture.

God forbid I actually know how to read a financial report. I've been consistently on target with how I think Nokia will do, whereas you, well you don't take a concrete position so its hard to tell.

Anyway, Microsoft needs to pick up the pace.
