Pathetic useless Wp8 Lumia. The new lumia relaunch is now going in q4 with wp8, which is supposed to be all that you ever wanted in a smartphone os, where have we herd thst befor, again and again and again? No it won't set the world on fire, Rotflmfao™

This is a suicidal strategy, every other handset maker who tried wp as primary has died doing it, or bleed so much in losses, they had to abandoned the path. Nokia will be gone unless it shifts now to Android, o wait Nokia is slaved for 3 years with MS there btches. Like every other wp maker of the past who survived, and far more likely Nokia is also damaged. They will simply die as a maker. ™

Ask Blackberry! Down to 1% and use to have over 50%. In 2 years thing will be different. I have the 822 and I like it. I have had all platforms----and Windows is just as good. My Android was nice----but the customization slows the units down---so it you want speed----long term----you need to keep it simple. IE: Tiles.

One could argue that Facebook won over MySpace because it had more games. But the reason I abandoned Myspace was because it was turning into a glitter-bombed teeny bopper graffiti fest. Facebook was much cleaner.

How that relates to Android and WP, I have no clue. Both have their pluses and minuses, and IMO it also depends which manufacturer skin we're comparing. I'd choose Sense over WP, but WP over TouchWiz.

Well, I think Touchwiz is the dorky and cartoony one, but I doubt anyone in that conversation would make Samsung=MySpace. :O

I hope you still remember this and all the other marketing lies of Nokia and Microsoft Windows Phone.

Apparently the smartphone beta test is NOT YET OVER. Not by a long shot.

NOKIA CUTS LOSSES BUT SALES CONTINUE TO PLUMMET
By MATTI HUUHTANEN
— Apr. 18 11:48 AM EDT 2013

HELSINKI (AP) — Nokia continues to take a hammering in the smartphone market, with sales for the handset maker falling by 20 percent in the first three months of the year.

Although the Finland-based company managed to reduce its first-quarter net loss to 272 million euros ($357 million) from a loss of 928 million euros a year earlier, that was mainly thanks to cost-cutting. Revenue dropped to 5.8 billion euros from 7.4 billion euros.

Although sales of Lumia phones grew 27 percent in the first quarter, they are still a long way behind those of the Apple iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy range. Total sales of Nokia mobile phones were down by more than 30 percent to 1.59 billion euros in the first three months of the year.

The company is also being squeezed in the low-end "feature phone" market by Asian manufacturers making cheaper handsets, such as China's ZTE.

Welcome to the untainted truth.

And please do tell me when WP becomes a mature mobile RTOS. Welcome to your downgrade. ;-)

EVERY day I use iOS, WP8, and Android. Not much of a difference. My favorite device is my 5th generation iTouch. Slim and the fastest option on WiFi. But whatever---Samsung makes a iTouch type device---would be happy with that too. Should I pretend one is much better and dig in my heals?!?!?!?

I wish I get paid in Nokia 808 PureViews, Nokia N8's and Nokia N9's. Unfortunately none has arrived at my doorsteps or mailbox yet. In the meantime:

Don't believe me? Then just ponder on this: Nokia traded 37.6% (approx. 385 Million) shipped and/or installed base (Symbian) for 1.7% (approx. 40 Million) shipped and/or installed base (Windows Phone). The Lumia sales cannot even offset the losses from no sale of Symbian units.

Now how stupid is that? >:(

Nokia CEO Mr Elop set out to make Nokia number one in Windows smart phones and has done what He set out to do so no one can call him a failure. The Windows phone 8 blue
Updates will Make Windows smart phones capable using all of the technology that Apple and Android smart boast that they have over Windows smart Phones. soon we wil see Galaxy note sized Windows smart phones. I use a Nokia lumia 928 myself. I want Nokia to survive and think they should make a good Android smart phone for Android fans.but alas that dream wont come true!.
HOWEVER ANYTHIING IS POSSIABLE!

Why would you want WP8 to die? If anyone deserves to bite it, it's BlackBerry.

Mr. Stephen Elop FAILED MISERABLY to offset sales losses using Microsoft Lumia.

Nokia is far off worse with Windows Phone than Symbian and MeeGo.
