Nokia takes Instagram campaign to banner ads
0. phoneArena 17 Mar 2013, 08:45 posted on
In its continuing effort to get Facebook-owned Instagram to create an app for Windows Phone users, many of whom are sporting Nokia Lumia phones, Nokia has shifted the battlefield to banner ads; the battle might already be over seeing that a screenshot from the Windows Phone Store shows the photo sharing app all ready to go for what is claimed to be a May launch...

The OS has no Apps and games!
The main drawbacks are
1 lack of notification
2 Me tile
3 the upgrade
4 exclusive search button
5 lack of volume profiles
6 the pseudo wp8
7 rotation lock
8 fix multitasking
10 always visible status bar
11 gapless audio playback
12 make features available to wider audience
13 fm radio
14 making call is time consuming
15 fix the calendar
16 home screen sync backup
17 select all
18 revamp podcast
20 allow apps to install ad card
21 a better Zune alternative
Wow way to many drawbacks
This WP is abort back

You also might want to add 23. milk. 24. hairdresser and 26. pancake on your list.
You must be the biggest troll of trolls, since you really took the time to write such a non sense list.
I know, it is frustrating to be invested into Apple's way too expensive ecosystem.

Yeah, not getting a WP because it doesn't make coffee for me.

Yo, S-Return, we might as well name you Sretard instead. Since when is dying for FM radio a critical aspect to your super computing needs? Pathetic...

Nokia is almost begging for an useless app and WP fans always say they dont need apps.

18. StreetNerd (Posts: 819; Member since: 08 Dec 2010)

64. dexter_jdr (Posts: 1163; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
because d**k$ like you complain that windowsphone has no apps. then suggesting buying android phones instead.
66. dexter_jdr (Posts: 1163; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
repost: not really. the community (EVEN PHONE SITE REVIEWS LIKE PA) complain that there are few apps on WP (even though there are plenty).
and 1st on the list was an instagram app.
they facking complain wp has no apps coz there is no instgram in it. so nokia is convincing the instagram team to buiild one. blame instagram team not making one for windowsphone

It makes Nokia look like a homeless person begging for help

if nokia makes just one android it would make more money and it would be more known than any other company out there but they are dump they want to stay windows there is nothing with staying windows but they can still release one android plus windows is going to stab them in the back with there own phones.

People,stop saying that Nokia should go for Android,I don't think that Nokia need Android.I mean Android was a miserable OS when it was released,but time passed and it's the most used OS in the world.So that will be with Nokia and Windows Phone too,,,Nokia is very unique by staying with WIndows Phone,because nearly all the phone manufacturers use Android,and Nokia is unique by staying with Windows Phone,,,Nokia makes Windows Phone better!And about the apps,there will be plenty of apps in WIndows Phone store by the time!
8. bojan (Posts: 188; Member since: 06 Oct 2012)
no one is saying anything. there is nothing wrong with staying windows but if they want more people to buy nokia and market there nokia as a company and make money and more money at the same time more than they making with windows and grow bigger with windows they would have to make one Android phone to bring more people to buy nokia and market themselves and make more money to build them self better earn them self being unquie. but now they are with windows and they not making much and not many people swithcing because no markting and also soon windows will stab them in the back with making there own phones and it would be late to make Android phone for nokia. if they want to be successful they should not close the door look at the other companies they get in to anything they keep there options open they have a back up plan but nokia doesn't

Hey all the haters here.. Nokia is doing this for their users...... If they are trying their best to bring an app on WP ..they can do anything to make user experience better...... A Loyal company for Loyal users... ... Not for losers..

Fark off if you want to bring racism into the topic
This is customer service, Nokia is helping and supporting their customers
11. feres13 (Posts: 306; Member since: 23 Dec 2011)
If Nokia wants to succeed, i think they should release a similar smartphone that would run android or WP8. Like the Lumia 800 that looks like the N9, or the 710 looks like the Nokia 603, that's what they did to get into the WP market. Also using android will allow for better hardware that will support a 41MP Pureview sensor, and a 1080p display for viewing these amazing pictures, and better CPUs and GPUs for gaming.
What i meant is that if a user can chose what he wants, a Lumia 920 for WP, and a (add a fancy name) 920 running android. Everybody will be satisifed.

Idk about everyone else but when a company listens to the cries of its consumers, and makes apps itself to satisfy those cries that's loyalty to the consumer. Now when that same company is prohibited from making an app because of terms of services, and instead they start a campaign to get the app maker to create one, not just for its own devices, but for competitors as well, that's loyalty.
Nokia is a company that is loyal to its consumers they see apps and games that are popular on other platforms, that publishers won't bring to wp8, and they decide to recode and publish on wp8 instead. When there is feedback and complaints about a device they listen and push updates.
HTC, Moto, and Samsung on the other hand, are slow to update, and don't listen to to customer feedback. And people are still loyal. That's like chasing around a girl that doesn't like you and buying her stuff to get her love. I'll stick to the girl that will reciprocate my loyalty

because this is nokia.

I just dont know why Nokia needs to beg for such a single app? (instagram) So what if they got the instagram? Will that make their sales grow 100%? Instead begging for an app that is impossible to come, Nokia must focus their attention on how to get their glory days instead begging for an app that is really exclusive for iOS and android only. Poor Nokia
33. Shadow_Assassin (Posts: 11; Member since: 30 May 2012)
this is called marketing strategy. and now many people including you paid attention isn't it? and some may praise nokia for its support to customers. poor you.
17. EspHack (Posts: 70; Member since: 04 Sep 2012)
all i can say is if i were using another phone i would be jealous watching how much nokia cares about their fans, fighting for them, thats lovely
21. ogy_dogy (Posts: 453; Member since: 29 Jun 2012)
Nokia is currently the only oem that truly cares and may i say fights for its users, I never heard anyone else doing this for their fans. Thank you NOKIA!

Surely instagram will to windows app store soon
32. Whateverman (Posts: 3262; Member since: 17 May 2009)
I can't blame Nokia for doing all they can to attract Instagram, but is Microsoft doing anything to help? I imagine this would help ALL WP devices, so having M$ backing would go a long way.
And yes, Nokia still should make at least one Android device! It would attract more users to their products.

Kepp it Up Nokia....you doing great........!!!
56. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
Adding to the base: another app, and Instagram could be another customer in the making. I don't see the downside to Nokia's grand plan to give themselves more wares in the pocket...
57. Credo (Posts: 748; Member since: 19 Apr 2012)
I hope it comes also to Windows Phone 7.8 :)
62. microsoftnokiawin (Posts: 1178; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)
and this is why nokia has the best customer support and listens to their fans
63. B3BLW29 (Posts: 238; Member since: 02 Mar 2012)
Take that u #Samsung for releasing good hardware in cheap plastics... (and that was for not listening to users)
69. tigermcm (Posts: 855; Member since: 02 Sep 2009)
