Those comments are hilarious! These execs still haven't learnt jack!

People DO care about which OS is running their phone! Additionally, people would rather buy a lower rated Android "smart" device than a completely different "low-end" device running a "low end" OS.

While Android has a unifying effect on users Nokia is creating a class system with the WP vs Meltemi devices. (Oh, you're using Meltemi, because you can't afford WP!!)

Nokia is definitely coming back. They are putting all the efforts and most of which is not understandable by people who do not know strategic management. I personally do didn't like many of Elop's early decisions but it seems if Nokia is able to come out of this tough time for once, it will gain its glory again in a few years. I wish Nokia to keep standing to provide us innovative products in future. WP 8 should bring many changes which Android and Symbian lovers seek for (I cross my fingers).

"Biggest rival Google Maps offers 1 language and only 28 countries"

1 language? I was just navigated by a german voice by Google Maps. No English and dozens other languages in there?

i think they should create a flagship series. Lumia is nice, but after a while the naming system would go haywire and we wouldn't know which is the high end one. right now there is only 610, 710, 800, 900 --- i see that higher is better but it doesn't seem catchy. there should be a name to any direct competitor to the Galaxy and iPhone.

gaaah, i'm so excited for WP8. can't wait till WP Fanboys show up and it's a 3-way OS War! hahaha. imagine the fanboy chaos when phone smackdowns are made.

iSheep, Fandroids, Windows Phone what? Suggestions? hahaha.

We will probably see a new name when the WP8 comes out, since then they can get hardware crazy.

Microfans? :)

Nokia still haven't distinguished their products compared to other Windows Mobile phones. As far as things stand, Microsoft appear to be the dominant partner in this relationship and I don't see that changing as long as Stephen Elop stays at the helm.

Haven't distinguished their products compared to other Windows Mobile phones? Probably not, since Windows Mobile phones are sort of outdated.

When compared to other Windows Phone phones however, it should be pretty obvious that the Lumia 800 and 900 are distinguished, why else would Lumia 900 sell in spades and HTC Titan not?

Well I am bit pleased with Nokia after Lumia 900. Although only after the release of Windows 8 Apollo I will conclude how good the OS platform is. I think moving from Symbian to Windows might have been a nice way. But one big mistake that Nokia did was ditching MeeGo. It is the best OS platform. They still have time to consider MeeGo and keep it alive, use it for some of the high end smartphones along with Windows 8.
Don't know the future of S40 platforms as i hardly care for dumbphones

I am a Nokia fan & user for a very long time (Symbian days). I have nothing bad to say about Nokia, my years of using your phones was a pleasure. Even though I will be shifting to Android this July 2012 becaused it caught my interest and emotions xD rather than Windows Phone, I would still say goodluck and more powers to you old buddy. I learned so much from you and made me a smartphone enthusiast the way I am right now.
