I ain't trolling BB dude. I'm sad that they're able to sell only one million in a quarter. I hope they make a comeback.

Obvious some like wp or they wouldn't have any sales including the four wp devices I've purchased since wp8... Or do you mean YOU don't like wp? Big difference sir.. but I'm sure you will have a rebuttal

Speak for yourself. Sales and growth show otherwise.

Maybe they'll get at least 40% - 50%of the market share in a decade.

For that, they first need to make the WP OS far less horrible.

30. papss unregistered

Far less horrible?.there goes that terrible outlook that you seem to have towards wp... It's quite good imo and before you get into some ridiculous qoating spree just know that your comments come off as down right pathetic

Not as pathetic as WP.

If you find WP so horrible and terrible, then why the heck do you use it?

How is it not by choice?

I didn't want Windows Phone. I wanted Nokia. I bought Nokia. WP came tagging along with it, like an unwanted guest. Hence, 'not by choice'.

So why don't you buy the 808?

58. alterecho

Posts: 1106; Member since: Feb 23, 2012

Wanted to, but, i already had the 701, which had similar hardware to 808 and it had some issues with my Wi-Fi, so had to get a newer phone. And since all new Nokia's, claimed to be, smartphones were shipping with Windows Phone (unfortunately), i had no choice.

Same too I like Nokia but this pathetic no apps and games restricted platform has totally ruined Nokia The might Nokia was know as a open source platform which was like Android. Symbian is exactly like Android

Symbian is nothing like Android. it's horrible.

Speak for yourself! Symbian was/is/will be, far far better than what WP can only dream to be of.
