Terrorists attack Malls, Stadium, temples, apartments and NOT graveyard... Does that means graveyard is the best place to live????

NO, graveyard is NOT worth it... The same reason why WinXP has more virus than Linux in PC/desktop...

I just don't understand Nokia's startegy. In my opinion, Nokia should have used MeeGo for high-end phones, and Symbian for Ashas. Windos Phone has very nice UI and Nokia apps are great, but the core functionality is limited compared to any other os (except iOS which has more limitations like non expendable storage, no mass storage and no BT file transfer).

Why don't you give us examples how WP8 is limited compared to Android for average uses? I'm curious to see what you can come up with...

WP is too rubbish, it can't even play MKV or FLAC when iOS/Android can do this perfectly.

USB OTG, HDMI out, no file explorer, no live multitasking. These are key the areas where Symbian and Android outperform WP...

Cool story bro.

*typing this from my Lumia 920*

You know Apple will always own the US market. It's just how it is. I say wait until after MWC when Nokia announces Verizon phones and any other toys.

How can it be too little to late when nokia has finally started to make a profit last Q? Even tho its not a perfect situation for the Finnish giant i think they are finally starting to see fruits of their labour. And it has not been exactly two years now has it? Nokia might have signed a bunch of papers two years ago but the first lumia 800 was sold in november 2011, so basically the entire 2011 financial and sales score is a big symbian flop.

p.s. who is buying all these bada phones?? i have never even seen one and it supposedly outsells wp?

samsung wave series are pretty succesfull here in australia ( specialy the gt8500 & gt575.. ) i can see pretty much people using it instead any of windows phone.. and bada pretty popular in some south east asia countries..

Because this article was written by someone biased against Nokia that's why.. half what is "reported" is taken out of context or twisted as you point out..

I'm starting to switch from this website to another the iOS fanboys seem to have a firm grip on this website and its starting to show more and more each day.

100% correct my friend, I'm one of the south east Asian and they can't even differentiate what is bada and android, they only know touchwiz and they want Samsung and Samsung only :)

i agree with you.. bada supposed to be dead honestly speaking... but since it has the same looks of touchwiz like the old galaxy s.. many people think that it's an android device.. and plenty people got fooled.. sammy surely got lucky with this "dead" platform.. lol..

Dear darac, do you realize that investor has powerful right to sack elop? And ms has no right to stop them?

I love to see fandroid accused ms torture Nokia when ms can't stop Nokia sacked elop, and you guys keep silent when Google torture moto and a lot of American employee lost their jobs because of these... And moto investor can't sack because Google is one of the shareholders...

ms no own Nokia, fandroid shout Nokia tortured by ms
Google owns moto, fandroid silent when Google fire moto staff...

I can bet that people won't tell different between android and the upcoming tizen thanks to touchwiz once again :)
