If Nokia keeps being innovative on the hardware and that's gonna attract more users to it. The more of the users on Windows Phone, the more developers/apps there will be.

We as consumers are the winner as the market gets more competitive.

They are also innovative when it comes to OS, too bad, they put to garbage all those home-brewed OS, such as meego and symbian.

Yes, Nokia's hardware is phenomenal and extremely innovative. A rare sight in today's saturated smartphone market. But the Operating System is many step backwards. It doesn't even keep the WiFi on when screen is off!! How else am I supposed to keep up with my email? Make sure I am using it??

You're talking about WP. That's another side of the story. Microsoft is the one developing it. But I have read that there's an app in WP that could override that feature and let your WiFi turned on even if screen is off. :)

if u mean for the processor, why should nokia put a dual core or what ever the specs ur talking about, if meego can run smoothly on the "STANDARD SPECS" ??
android is a heavy OS thats whay samsung and other anroid phone manufacturers were implementing dual core and quad core, so the android doesn't lag, and still it does!!

Definitely lying as almost all the significant apps found in android could also be found in WP, better yet, more intuitive alternatives.

I don't think that WP is bad OS, I think that WP just need more time to evolve and it should become a really good OS.

i agree with u on this, since am obsessed with cars-related games, especially the Asphalt 7 and the NFS, they are the best games for cars

in my opinion we've got to give it extra time for developers to bring those amazing apps and games into windows phones

Don't know why people are thumbing down your comment. Must be the Nokia fans.... Galaxy S III works fine and is also sensitive with sharp objects, just not with a glove.

Yeah that works on any touch screen, but the metal has to be a really good conducter to work as smoothly as it does in the video. So its work like a science trick, than it actually being as sensitive as the nokia screen.It won't work with any knife you throw at it unlike the nokia screen. You can try with a knife right now and you can see the screen move but its not as accurate or responsive like the nokia in the video.(I just tried it, my knife was not as good a conductor as in the vid so it wasn't as accurate or responsive) Also the nokia screen works with non-conducting materials like plastic too, other touch screens can't.

ps if you hold the non-conducting plastic end the trick won't work, as the charge from your body can't travel through plastic/rubber.
