We wouldn't have the smartphones (or computers) we do today without Microsoft. Reminds me of the "six-foot turkey" speech in Jurassic Park...

Come on, MS was the last man standing in the PC OS war thanked to a small favor from IBM. And without MS we had many choices like Warp from IBM.
But conditions favored MS in the end.
What MS did was hanging on to the monopoly and crushed all innovation that was not from MS.

It can't be that MS and Nokia are just plainly mocking Android.
I'm thinking of a native dual-boot feature.

Don't think so, MS is pushing to be exclusive - they paid Nokia to be unique.

Every company will fall, Nokia is a god damn phoenix

Nokia is a phoenix? Nokia's market share has totally plummeted and guess what, they aren't even the exclusive manufacturer for WP8... talk about putting all your eggs in the wrong basket.

We could think of it this way: Lumia on Android 4.1. Who wouldn't want one?

Oh no, you di'n't... -_- such attitude is just tolerable even from manufacturers who actually CAN afford it. Nokia's not been in that position for quite a long time by now.....
25. Evil_SaNz (Posts: 259; Member since: 20 Oct 2011)
Manufacturers that can afford such attitude don't really need it, because product sells by itself.

this picture actullay means that the combination of having jellybean device along with lumia is cool

I think their strategy is to get people's attention by mocking Android. Well played, Windows, you caught my attention so I will listen. I hope this will not be another flop like what happened on the announcement of the Pureview.

Perhaps Nokia has decided it will start to produce Android Phones?

i think that would probably be the only way for them to turn a profit again.. MeeGo would have been great tho

Seems most of the people do not do their homework before writing:
If 7 millions is bad figure for new OS with rushed to produce Lumia 800/900, then Android's first year must have been catastrophic. And iPhone? 2007 aside, when it was announced this year, it was around 11 that was sold - 40% more with Apple being all loved, etc.
So, just stand and watch - Nokia is not RIM.

Lol, empty threat indeed, with phones like the Galaxy S3, Note2, S2, Xperia T, Acro S, LG Optimus G, HTC One X etc...Nokia and MS need a miracle,i guess this is just great publicity for Android JellyBean in the end :)

its not a threst its like "May i have your attention please" before u start a presentation its not a marketting stunt

is it me or the lumia in this picture really looks retard??

Comparing WP to Android and iOSs 1st year makes no sense, both were available on one network (T-Mobile for Android and AT&T for iPhone) and in one country for a long time, WP was widely available globally from Day1. Also, Android and iOS were being launched by companies that were new to the mobile scene, Apple and Google, on the other hand WP is MS's 3rd try if you count the KIN phones, not only that but Nokia was a powerhouse in the mobile scene, when you put this altogether then you realise that WP should be sitting at #1 by now, yet look at it, 7million Lumias, all it has done is drag Nokia down to just another manufacturer having a hard time just trying to break-even.

It may be Microsoft's third attempt, but it is arguably their best. The original WP7 was an unfinished product, much like how most Android releases up to 3.0 were, if we're honest. ICS 4.0 and JB 4.1 have very much solidified the system and made it that much more of a consistent experience with fewer issues. That said, WP has offered consistency from day one, despite "missing" features, and a pleasant, approachable, and functional experience the entire time as well, regardless of manufacturer, which is an admirable accomplishment, and one I believe they'll continue to offer going forward, with even more and better accomplishments along the way. Do I see WP having Android's market share anytime in the next 2-3 years? No, but I do see them taking a sizeable chunk from iOS mostly, with a little from Android, until there's a close to equal adoption rate for both.

Nokia will announce it's first Jellybean running lumia phone.

It's so silly of Nokia to declare war (in the name of their WP7/8 running phones) to the Android OS.
The WP7/8 is much more similar to iOS due to it's fluidity, stability and hardware limitations unlike the Android which is fragmented,with no hardware limitations and requires a lot of resources to run well.
So it would make much more sense if they would declare war to the iPhone.
