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.

I don't think the average Symbian buyer knows who Elop is or what he has said, but I think we can be certain his remarks didn't cause more Symbian phones to be sold.

And we must not forget those great WP 7.5 Lumia's that got stuck on 7.8, unable to move up to WP8. Had I known that in advance I wouldn't have bought one.

It's rather annoying to read an article about a new app, only to get a "your device is not supported" message when you try to install it.
