As much as I'd love Nokia hardware with Android OS, I'm enjoying my Lumia 900 and I too wish Nokia luck. Nokia's innovations should be rewarded and I hope they become contenders in the near future, all the best.

Yup, even though I'm using Android OS, I love Windows Phone too!
The live tiles, ahh......amazing, and with the amount of games and apps increasing, Nokia will definitely make a comeback in the future!
So, good luck Nokia! :)

Yeah, we need to wait for the official announcement, but still, we need to wish all the best to Nokia!
Nokia will definitely make a comeback in the future, and also I'm waiting for the Catwalk too!

Remember, in most of the Nokia articles will be peaceful. And I was just wishing Nokia good luck, if someone give a thumbs down on my comment, that means that they're too "HIGH". :P

one thing that is keeping nokia from being on the top is they only attacted to one os and also they are slow in moving forward they only add 1 feature for each phone if they need to grow faster they need to be aggressive hit it hard
8. superstar (Posts: 30; Member since: 14 Apr 2013)
Blackberry yes, Nokia no in a year and a half they have produced a large number of great windows phones that HTC and Samsung can't compete with, this is why Nokia has gained 80% of the windows 8 market share!
11. lovenyc8 (Posts: 164; Member since: 13 Mar 2013)
i know that superstar but i'm talking features wise they need to bring more things to the table go aggressive as never before i'm sure if they hit it aggressive they will be on top they need to keep there options open don't attracted to one os.

True I know what you I see the Nokia N9 and think what if...? The worlds best ever phone design phone and meego a really nice intuitive OS I would have brought a Meego phone if they were still being made and supported as who needs thousands of apps, A good UI which doesn't need huge processing power to run smoothly is far more important at the same time I do like windows phone. (windows phone with MHL or hdmi ports are needed)

What features do you think they would need?
15. lovenyc8 (Posts: 164; Member since: 13 Mar 2013)
i think they need something new that other phones don't have to show everyone who is nokia show them that they back on top i really would like to see nokia on top again they deserve it they are good at what they do.

Hardware restrictions. Even though Microsoft thinks a dual core 1.5ghz processors are enough and 720p screen resolutions are enough top end windows phone with specifications of mid rage android phones does not make sense an average spec found on the HTC window phone 8x costs £400, why...? Quad core full HD display phones are needed to bring down the price of Mid spec phone so they can compete with android and MHL would be useful.
My ideal spec windows phone; 1.7ghz dual core processor 2gb ram 1080p HD(4.3 inch display), micro sd slot In an identical design to lumia 800 with MHL and by Nokia
19. lovenyc8 (Posts: 164; Member since: 13 Mar 2013)
also it doesn't hurt if nokia includs a 20-41 mp camera in there with 1.7ghz dual core processor 2gb ram 1080p HD(4.3 - 5 inch display), micro sd slot
29. akki20892 (Posts: 3901; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
i Think Catwalk, will have Aluminium, 1080p, 2gb ram, micro sd slot, and Quad core.....will be damn good phone from Nokia.....and some cool features.
41. Leo_MC (Posts: 1596; Member since: 02 Dec 2011)
The same questions gets to be asked for Android devices.
Why does a plastic Android phone costs more than an aluminium or glass one?
MHL is about physical connection, I'm for the elimination of the cables: dnla, wifi, kinetc etc.
Why 1.7 GHz when we can have 3 GHz; why 2 Gb when we can have 16 Gb, why 1080p when 4k is uppon us, why sd when we can have 256 Gb, no 2Tb of internal space?
The thing is we can stretch the hardware but can we identify what do we NEED in a PHONE?
Do we need quad-core? If "yes", what for?
Do we need 1080p in 5-6"? If "yes", what for?
Unless one answer this questions, enumerating hardware findings are useless.
Edit: I, for one, would like saphire glass on a iPhone-like (size, design and hardware) phone; everything more (except the size) would be a bonus.

Read the first paragraph of comment 16 again, that's why
47. Leo_MC (Posts: 1596; Member since: 02 Dec 2011)
To answer your dilemma, the same thing applies to Android: "16 cores, 4k displays are needed in Android phones so that they can compete with mid range tablets".
But answer me this: does it makes sense to use quad-core processors just to flip between screens with hardly any lag? (because that's Android: a hardware hungry os that does nothing more than a WP with dual-core).
I'm sure you can tell us - and I can hardly wait to hear - why do normal people need quad-cores or 5" displays in their PHONES and what can Android phones do and iOS, WP, Blackberry (or even Symbian) phones can't.
3, 2, 1, Go:

I still don't think you have understood what I'm trying to say. All I am saying is that if you take 2 phone's which are similar say the xperia s and lumia 820 and compare the screen resolution xperia s 342, very sharp compared 820's 217 noticeable pixels. Which costs more? 820 by around £100 more. I think windows owners should not have to pay a lot more for specs on hardware which are the same as cheaper android devices. Why is this case, it is the case with all of the higher end windows phones

Take Nokia 920 (with it's PureMotion HD+ display) and put it next to S3 (with 720p pentile, oversaturated display); they both have about the same price.
Which one will is better?
You say internals; ok, let's hear it: what can a phone like a S3 do and 920 can't?

There are phones like galaxy grand that works great with dual core.. Flagship android phones are true multitasking devices... I don't know much about wp but iOS is not that great to multitasking.. S3 can hold the minimized app for several days and it resumes exactly to the same situation unlike ios.. Lets not forget about the premium suite upgrade that brings multi window.. If You don't need high quality display, high processor then you can get mid range devices like galaxy grand or s4mini..they are on par with iPhone in terms of features and 3 times cheaper too.. I can connect a pendrive, or keyboard easily on flagship androids.. They also offer file manager and easy file sharing options.. I don't need to rely on iTunes if my fren has a good song that he wants me to listen.. Android has lots of choices, if you don't think you don't need those high spec hardware then you can get the hardware specs that you need.. But if you are ready to pay $600+ then why not get a full blown hardware than mediocre specs right? Choice is yours, having choice is good remember right? As You don't like 1080p display and high cpus, what do you think flagship wp and ios can do that mid range galaxy grand can't do?

So now you don't want phones to be any better.. So limited thought
