They will struggle a bit, but from November we will see the true results

nokia's attitude has made them face this condition.they think adopting wp will solve the situation.but look at the first quarter sales of wp,nearly dropping half of the gained share.they should handshake with android king to overcome the situation as well as continue with wp also.

Put the PureView on Android and WP. Symbian is condemned to die.

This really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone! Nokia is planning to discontinue Symbian, that fact alone should predict a decline in sales! Consumers in the know don't go buying a product that they know will be discontinued!
Nokia shouldn't have killed off MeeGo. While it wasn't ready for prime time, it would ave provided an "upgrade path" to Symbian users or simply an alternative to those who just don't like WP. I've played with the new Lumia. It's a great device, but I just can't seem to get myself to love WP.
While WP is not bad per se, I hate the endless scrolling it requires as well as the fact that it almost forces you to use the integrated Microsoft products. The small icons IOS and Android provide make navigation a whole lot easier and provide the user with more choice.

Seeing first hand week on week how poor windows phone sales are id certainly agree that the smartphone future of Nokia will be very 'rough'

Who in their right mind would buy a Symbian handset with the certainty that it is being dumped by Nokia? Nokia (Elop) biffed the transition planning. A million handsets in the quarter.... Maybe Nokia should approach RIM about a partnership. They both were so full of themselves in their heydays.

I would. My next phone will be 808 PureView. Symbian may be dumped by Nokia, but is still one of the most capable OS (comparable only to Android when it comes to customization and features). 808 with it's great photo, video and audio recording will be true multimedia powerhouse.
