Nokia already seems to be facing some stiff competition from Samsung and HTC's WP8 phones.

Nokia is good at build quality.
Samsung is good at specs & price factor.

I dont think samsung will give Nokia to grab the NO 1 position so easily.

That's probably because people don't like the truth or because you haven't actually owned any of the three items you've mentioned and just have a general dislike of Samsung. I can tell you straight up I fanatically loathe Nokia and Elop to the grave.

Thats funny because I swear by Samsung Electronics...I started long ago with the original Windows Samsung Omnia on Vzw and now sport a GNex. Had my Omnia until I got my GNex this past December. I've never had any issues with my TV, bluray home theater system, mobile phones or appliances. I find that if you take care of them, they take care of you

Stiff competition all right if you're ATT's pet. Ain't switching carriers just for a Nokia. Want my business, you come to me. I can settle for a GS3 or odyssey. And if god willing, an HD8. I realize playing the running around game is just being a fool. If your carrier gives you great service, stick with it.

Nokia cant compete with Htc and Samsung.
I believe due to people choosing, liking high-end specs and feautres,
which Nokia was never good at.

Not true. Nokia dont even have a dual-core phone!
Nokia dont even support Flash 10 or eleven. I had a N8, and it was slow and laggy. Web browsing a night-mare yes the build quality is above standard!
The 8800 were the best build Nokia, and no 1 can, and will ever defeat that.

well u are either ignorant and dont want to know other part of that dual core story cuz all wp7 from nokia samsung HTc were single from genration 1 to last one that came out and it was because it was resticted by microsft OS limitation at that time dont belieave me ask anyone here around they will agree and dual cores are supported in all android phones so its obvious samsung and HTC makes dual cores cuz the OS suport it and from now nokia is gonna make dual cores u can bet on that and watch the sep 5th nokia world

Uh, Nokia was making some of the best phones in the world, even before Samsung was a "household name". They still know how to make a quality handset, but have been stymied with software, to a point: recent examples would be the 808 PureView and N8 are good examples of good phones (4" AMOLED screen, quick processor, awesome camera, wonderful reception and call quality, something Samsung still doesn't have down pat) that would have been great phones with an improved OS. The E7 was similar, but more business-minded. N9, good phone, just stillborn with what could have been (and may well be) a definitive next-gen OS. Likewise, the entire Lumia series are well-balanced phones with honest price points, with a capable but undeveloped OS and a pleasant UX and UI. While not competitive head to head with the likes of a GS3, they do fine for what they are. Lastly: Vertu. Yes, it's sold now, but the only way Samsungs or even iPhones were sold for even near that much was if they were covered in precious gems and metal, but even then they were just the same phone, with no special perks like the Vertu program.

Yeaaaaaaaah this is good stuff. This is exactly what I expected with WP8. Same hardware "under the hood", just pick OS.

Great news for a Monday morning!

Samsung Galaxy Odyssey is the World most powerful WP8.

Nokia WP8 is a failure because Nokia don't have enough in-house components and flexibility like Samsung or other Asian phone makers.

I have Samsung Galaxy S3 loving so much.

they wont have a choice... they will power its phone with latest hardware since they dont use there own OS now... thats what they get on using others OS.. so nokia will still make the best WP8

samsung=android
nokia=WP8

and i think samsung might be super expensive if apple will going to force samsung to pay them royalty... not to mention samsung is already paying microsoft of $12 per android device which is a cash...

im still betting on nokia's WP8... pureview and clearblack technology is the best... sAMOLED might be awesome but on legibility under the sun... clearblack rules!!

Nokia dont have there own OS. How stupid. And rely
on MS, and alsp restricted than ios. Symbian users had
freedom. Do u think they will prefer Windows? No way. They are
all migrating to Android. At least Samsung tried Android. Symbian, remember the innovate8.
