Nokia CEO says the positive results of choosing Windows Phone are coming as soon as this quarter
Yes, there are some who believe that Nokia made a mistake in deciding to go with the Windows Phone OS and that the company would have been better off had the Finnish OEM selected Android, or even BlackBerry, instead. Earlier this year, financial glossy Forbes came out and said that considering that Nokia owns a whopping 80% of the Windows Phone market, the company made the right decision. When you think of Windows Phone, doesn't Nokia come to mind immediately?

Now, Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop says that the current quarter, which ends this month, will really show a big payoff to Nokia for choosing Windows Phone. The quarter is expected to show some very good financials for Nokia including a volume of sales that the industry won't be able to ignore. In addition, the money that Nokia has spent on improving imaging technology has paid off big time. Nokia has pushed hard the low-light photography experience that can be found on its high-end models like the newly introduced Nokia Lumia 925, the recently released Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon, and the Nokia Lumia 920.

According to the executive, Nokia will continue to try to differentiate itself with mapping and offline navigational services. He also brought up the idea of computational photography with the 16 array camera technology offered by Pelican Technology. This allows those who shoot a photograph to change the focus of the picture after it is taken.

While Windows Phone seems ready to impact Nokia's financials starting this quarter, there still is the question of whether it can make an impact on an industry that features the duopoly of iOS and Android. Elop says he has much more coming in 2013 and there are reports that the 41MP camera equipped Nokia Lumia EOS and a Nokia tablet will launch via AT&T in July. There is also speculation that a 6 inch Nokia phablet will be introduced this year

Good they did, or else we would be still using outdated Cpu and Gpu!

When the N958GB came out, it was using 128Mb of Ram and 266Mhz Cpu, while the iPhone was using 256Ram, cpu 350zMhz. Even Htc Tytn2, Diamond had 300+Ram, 400+ Cpu.
So good Nokia didn't go Android. A company that is known for connecting people and using good camera, what good would it provide now, same old, same old.
Pathetic, useless®

N95 doesn't lag!? After few years with Nokia N73, N95 8gb, N85 I bought Galaxy s2 and after that I start to think how slowly and old is Nokia and Symbian.

And why do you compare a 2011 cellphone with a 2007 cellphone ?

And in 2007 the N95 had more features than ANY other phone out there, and that's why it had lower specs (to put more features) and it's one of the most advanced phones till now.

bluetooth
gpu (no other phones exept iphone had a gpu, at least with good drivers like n95)
FM Radio
3.5mm audio out
TV out
3g+ and HSDPA
wifi
irda
8gb memory
microsd
5mpx camera with flash and front camera
sterio speaker + dual slider
kickstand
usb 2.0
2.6" screen
digital TV receiver

So please don't compare with iPhone witch had, uh ... a 400 mhz cpu ?

Owning 80% of a market that only 3 manufacturers are willing to dive into isn't a big deal. That said, it is is a bit impressive with players like htc to compete against. But then again, HTC isn't really trying like Nokia. No one is. But its still a nice horn to toot.

No one else can afford to. M$ is Nokia's sugar daddy right, so they can focus on WP as much as they want. M$ isn't giving anyone else a dime towards developing WP devices.

That said, I never thought going with WP was a mistake. The only mistake I saw was putting all their eggs in that basket. It may pay off in the looooong run, but that doesn't help all those Nokia employees who were fired a couple years back. Android was a no-brainier, but what's done is done. Hopefully they'll make an Android device too in the near future

Nokia, HTC, Samsung, Hauwei, Fujitsu, Dell (previously), and a few others in Asia are making them.

Samsungs CEO said in March, that they are seing a Lackluster in US and EU for WP8 and RT tablets..

The samsung Ativ S has dropped 45% in price in 3 months... and the Ativ RT was dumbed in the US, 5 days after Steve Balmer highligted at CES 2013..

HTC 8X/S has dropped 40 to 50% in price since Launch...

So I think HTC and Samsung has left building, putting there focus there Androids...

Positive results coming this quarter? They already came. Wasnt there articles about how Nokia's WP market share increased, or stock prices, or something?

I would think he meant to say even more positive results.

And what if he's wrong? What I'd the positive results never come? He'll receive as huge golden parachute. That's the problem these days, there ate no consequences to the morons who driver these companies into the ground. Only the little people suffer.

Note I'm not saying Nokia will fail, I'm just talking about what will happen if Elop gambles and loses.
