Nokia dominated coverage of MWC says study
Nokia did introduce a number of new models like the Nokia Lumia 720, Nokia Lumia 520, Nokia 301, Nokia 105 and the Nokia Asha 310 and Nokia Asha 205. Number two was Samsung despite the Korean manufacturer's position on the sidelines during the show. Still, with the Samsung Galaxy S IV set to be introduced on March 14th in the Big Apple and with a huge event happening in Times Square, the manufacturer remains on everyone's mind.
would give a Firefox OS ROM to developers or owners of its low end Sony Xperia E Android model. The open web based software is based on HTML5 and other web standards and just might catch on with manufacturers and carriers trying to bust up the iOS-Android duopoly. LG was fourth while upstart Chinese smartphone manufacturers Huawei and ZTE were eighth and tenth respectively.
The mystery over which chip is in the ZTE Grand Memo played a part in the Grand Memo name finishing 26. The Chinese manufacturer at first insisted that it was the first phone to use Qualcomm's new high end Snapdragon 800 inside while Qualcomm said that it was the Snapdragon 600 in the phone. At the end of the day, it turned out that there will be various versions of the phone. Apple and the iPhone name came in 24th and 40th respectively while BlackBerry, trying to become relevant again with BlackBerry 10, was listed at 38.

Unless the Galaxy s4 Spits out a burger I won't upgrade it from my note II, Heck I might even consider getting a lumia eos

I'll be fortunate enough to be able to buy both the Lumia Eos and Note 3, sod the contracts, I'll never give in to carriers. No favoritism either, every OEM has a merit, to me all of them are have the pros and cons but meh, who cares. We all win.

That's funny cause I can't name a single Nokia device that supposedly dominated the MWC.
Did I miss a new flagship? A Lumia tablet? A W8 PureView?

Did you hear about the 7...2...0 mate? Not a flagship but i heard it pretty much put the "one's" camera to shame.
Besides, this is not about a particular device...this is about a 'name' that made news in the MWC 13.

You probably wasnt reading the news, else u must have heard of the NOKIA LUMIA 720 (u kno? like the next xbox) its really nothing big, but it thrumps lots of android flagships at lots of stuff (pretty much every wp8 phone does that, regardless of specs) and... And... And... Whatever, just run along now

Did anyone even look at the source of the study or are we all taking the news at face value? The Lissted link above takes you to a blog that seems to get new postings less than once a month on average. Sorry, but I'll wait for a more reliable news source, thank you.

nokia flagship release timelines are always september october not march besides 720 was a surprise no one expected a midrange phone to be on steroids and pack lot of heavy stuff in it

What's the first thing that comes to mind when we hear WP?
Nokia had that right of domination!

I thought you were a technologeek...tsk tsk, disappointed!
15. hiBreed (Posts: 90; Member since: 29 May 2012)
If u really thought there was, u wouldnt have replied, i for one, am here to cleanse u of your ignorance

I know there's a life... And that life helps me differentiate WP in relation with the article or the site... Not some historic personality.

Nokia made the right move with WP for the sake of differentiation (just like Elop said), as opposed to sticking with Android, where it'd probably be overshadowed by Samsung, in a similar situation as HTC, Sony, and others because who speaks of Android speaks of Samsung. I assume that this is a fair statement; that's how it is with Android at the moment.

Do Nokia's phones (920-720...etc) get test for anything else besides camera or build?, seriously, I would like to know this....
Get PPI Count?
13. Bernoulli (Posts: 2134; Member since: 01 Sep 2012)
That would be onwww.gsmarena.com where they even compared an 808 pureview to a Cannon

Now im gonna *shussh* your comment says it all

Yes they do, but not all benchmarks work on all platforms. i.e. the current WP8 flagships (Ativ S, Lumia 920, WP8X, Lumia 820/810/822) have the same 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, which shares its architecture with other devices. Benchmarks aren't everything.
17. hiBreed (Posts: 90; Member since: 29 May 2012)
Now look at your life, ask yourself ''what else do u need in a smartphone, that nokia hasnt given you'' benchmarks are bull$hit if your phone doesnt work smoothly

Some customization would be cool. At least a wallpapper.
29. sbw44 (Posts: 425; Member since: 04 Dec 2012)
Why should they be tested? Are you going to take out your phone in front of a group of people and say I'm gonna do a benchmark,CPU,GPU speed test?
All this benchmark tests is just a complete waste! because those results you get there is mostly not even based on real time stuff

As stated in a prior article, this isn't surprising. Nokia is still popular, relevant, and growing.

NOKIA is on top.......bcoz NOKIA - Connecting People.........!!!

Little Dissapointing MWC, CES is phenomenon
24. DerryAhmad (Posts: 248; Member since: 05 May 2012)
I thought the HTC One will create the most buzz from twitter for HTC on the MWC 2013.
It's quite surprising that Nokia came out on top despite not announcing a flagship phone. The Nokia Lumia 720 and 520, especially the 720 seem like a great affordable devices.

Nokia World should make a comeback with the EOS launch.. I wish.
