Unfounded? I am sharing an opinion that is based on measurable and verifiable facts... albeit some of it is still dismissable as circumstancial. On the other hand, you are parroting the "company line" as your opinion, and although you have verifiable history to back some of your claims, the rest of your suppositions regarding future success of Nokia and Windows Phone are also based on the equally-circumstancial dismissal of the "circumstancial evidence" I am looking at, but also with an unhealthy dose of marketing hype and promises that "it may be this way now for a little while longer, but this will all change when Windows Phone 8 comes out!" If my ex-wife had made good on her promise that "... it has to be this way for now, but things will change once we get married...", then I would probably not be divorced today. I can't afford to give Nokia and Microsoft the same pass I gave my then-soon-to-be-wife, now-ex-wife, and I see no sign that Nokia leadership actually is being incentivized to change anything... if anything, the opposite is true more-often-than-not here as of late. Corporations are made up of people, and run by people for people, thus they will behave in fundamentally similar fashion to people in general... and I have learned (the hard way) that people do not change unless they really want to change themselves.

I can't see Nokia rising.... Windows and symbian and others
Are in trouble. Nokia Microsoft can't continue its leads as the 3rd
Leg in the mobile twoh-horse race! Microsoft is resting much ov
its effort in prison phone L800 and L900, Nokia stake in the project
ia vital to its future building success. The market share is slipping
and the prison brand itself is warning in the wake ov Apple

Windows Phone 7.5... just because.

And because of this incident, it is more interesting to wait for the Tizen OS in Samsung and other companies. It will be like the Reincarnation of Meego in a different flavor. Hope you agree

I don't agree samsung took meego took all the goodness out of it and androinised it even runs android apps it doesn't have it's own ecosystem

After the announcement of the OS dead. there will be no ride left for WIndows walking crippled is his way. Unlike the two OS they always have a ride

WP is far from dead! If you don't like, get the f**k out! Easy as pie. Though I can't wait to see you bozos crawling back to WP in the near future. Change is a good thing. WP is a bold departure from the other two. And thats what makes it awesome. Though i admit, hate because something is different is part of human nature. Eventually people will get use it, and you clowns will too.

i think they will change they're mind if nokia 808 pureview does well
61. lubba (Posts: 1310; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
Nothing is gonna change these peoples minds. Their set in their old ways.
63. microsoftnokiawin (Posts: 968; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)
i personally blame Elop for this
62. azafirster (Posts: 43; Member since: 01 May 2012)
This will be the dumbest move they make.
64. allen83 (Posts: 107; Member since: 01 Mar 2012)
All of you guys I think we should wait for the Tizen OS. They say Tizen will have its own ecosystem. It is more interesting to wait for Tizen! :-)
65. microsoftnokiawin (Posts: 968; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)
Tizen is meego androinised so far but we will wait and see

see comment #22 there...
I figured Donna and Emily would never see the light of day, but Carla too? I didn't expect to be wrong in the wrong direction... embarrasing for me, and for Nokia and Symbian. Crud... this is depressing...

Yeah, not sure I got the right E-name there... so, rather than look it up on the spot, I just picked another E out of my mind... haha. Sorry about that.
