i think this is a little sad. some fanboys might come in here saying "ha, android!" or "ha, iphone!" but i see it as some people losing their jobs.

That really sucks. I think it's the fact that in the USA, people aren't really used to paying full retail price for a cell phone. Nokia is the largest manufacturer of phones in the world and they'll always be. They're part of the reason why so many people use cell phones today.

Well. Honestly. These peoples jobs are lost due to Nokias lack of interest in pushing for the US market. So who is really to blame?

i have seen the nokia phones they look and feel cheap and the OS just sucks period. blame lost jobs on nokia for poor quality. nokia was at one time pushing the bar in cell phone developement then they got lazy.

@wade1968-if what you say is true, then why is nokia still the #1 handset maker in the world and why do they also have the #1 O.S. in the world? Looks like you need to get your facts straight, fanboy.

@thatdude1 -> yes Nokia might be #1 by market share; but what you are missing is that 90% of that is all 3rd world countries using cheap brick phones; with their Symbian OS and their recently aborted smart phones (N95 and N97) Nokia is not in the position to compete in the smart phone market. It will truly be miracle if they can pull this one out
