Nokia suggests it will be 1st to WP8, maybe?

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop spoke to analysts today about a number of pertinent subjects surrounding Nokia. From the company’s reports of huge losses to the lack of upgrade options for current Lumia owners...

" Elop only pointed out that Windows Phone 8 has been demoed on Nokia’s hardware and that the company as a “close relationship” with Microsoft. He described that relationship as “unlike what anyone else has with Microsoft,” but never directly answered the question."
Special as in we get 250 million each quarter to make them :).

Ahh good defense pal. "Yea well Android does it too! So there!" Apple tried to use that same bull crap with the iPhone 4's antenna issue. "No there's no antenna issue, oh wait yea well guess what? ANDROID phones do it too!! see watch we use andre the giant and have him swallow the whole phone with his hand and cover every bit of it and see the signal go down with our editing"
And Android phones sell well because Android rocks and there's a device out there for every kind of consumer. WP isnt bad, but the lack of micro sd cards, low screen resolution, lack of customization, etc etc has really been holding it back. I'm very excited to see WP8 and will consider picking up one as a secondary device but it's still gonna have a tough time competiting with all the awesomeness that Jelly Bean has already brought to the table. Still, I'm way more excited about WP8 than I am with IOS6: nothing new, nothing revolutionary and trust me, I know about REVOLUTIONary. ;)

I knew this before Nokia knew it that they will be 1st to release WP8.

``.....Elop denied allegations that Windows Phone would be struggling with fragmentation issues by saying that over 60% of Android devices are 3 versions older than the current iteration, yet they continue to sell well.``
Nobody is still selling Froyo devices Stephen. Get your a** out of 2011. Too bad that none of the journos who interview this twerp ever call him on his bs.

Maybe he was counting honeycomb as seperate from gingerbread.... Ics, hc, and gb. Either way he's wrong because hc is just the tablet form of gb so it's only 2 gen. Back... Right?

Samsung will be the first WP9 and Nokia will be bankrupcy with WP8.

Right because Nokia has never copied anything from Android.

At least Nokia didn't copy Apple but instead receives royalties. Isn't that great!
18. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 3101; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
Lol so you admit that Nokia does copy from Android and yet you bash Android for copying Nokia? Makes sense!

So Charlene S., what are you trying to get at with your negative tone. He's probably saving all the excitement for Nokia world, not for you.

Of course Nokia will be the 1st to release WP8, and I predict that this will be the only serious WP8 handset in the market for a long duration of time. Others like SS or HTC only take WP as potential business option and will not really jump in until WP8 proves successful.

There's two many races, many manufacturers wants to be first with Windows (Phone) 8
