"Beautiful phones are coming" says Nokia CEO Elop

In an interview on Finnish television, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, in response to a question about the Nokia Lumia 928, said that, "there is so much good work ahead. I mean some of the beautiful phones still ahead we’re so excited about." Elop pointed out how Nokia smartphones are well known for their beautiful designs and the photography produced by the camera on Nokia phones. The executive said that future models will exaggerate both of those features and take them to higher and higher levels.

In what is good news for the Finnish handset manufacturer, Elop said Nokia will sell more phones on a sequential basis in the first quarter compared to the fourth quarter of last year. "Now we’re starting with a brand new set of products, we’re starting with low numbers but I like that Q4 was more than Q3 and I want to keep growing that and taking that to a higher and higher amount," said the CEO.

Elop also vocalized his goal for Nokia to beat Apple and Samsung by innovating. The innovation on the Nokia Lumia 920 includes the amazing low-light picture taking capabilities on the phone along with the great viewing angles that allow you to view the screen even under bright sunlight. He also pointed out how Nokia Lumia 920 users can control the screen even while wearing gloves.

The interview did have a funny moment when the interviewer kept pressing Elop on the Nokia Lumia 928 and the CEO had to dodge the question since the phone has yet to be announced.

Come on brushed aluminum design. I don't mind weight, I like my phones to have a little heft. I don't like the light weight ones. Makes me feel I'm going to break it. (I know it won't but I still don't like the feel)

So instead of killing Samsung, Nokia is killing themselves by using windows...ELOP should be sued for this. I love nokia and am amazed by their pure view tech... but windows is so sad..yak...!!!

Its impossible to be nobody if you exist,as you therefore exist. Funny enough phantoms are not meant to exist in the physical sense so maybe people called urban phantom equally don't exist and are a nobody

have you used jelly bean,even ics is smooth. android is true multitasking like windows so there it needs more processing power and ram-that is logical

are you still crying? doesnt android offer you enough this shows through all there crap android fans arent happy with the current offering and are whining for more. im sure android fanboys are so unhappy. there never satisfied with what they have always saying wait for the next one i.e. when the s4 came out and wasnt all it could be they quickly said wait for the note 3

You are a complete idiot for saying that. You see, we Android fans have never been happier or more excited to see a new Android flagship to come into the market. Why? Because of competition. I don't include blackberry or Apple in it because they have no competition with Android (overall). Android has overtook them long time ago. But the thing is where you are stuck with a the same sh!tty OS from 7 years, Android has gone a far way. Today, we have the best smartphones available thanks to Samsung, Sony, LG and HTC. But with new awesome devices coming every few months, it's hard to decide which device to buy and keep. That's how awesome market is right now. I don't have to wait a freaking year for a new WP to come out or an apple device to come out or a blackberry to come out (because even when they do they are crap). And the truth is WE LOVE NOKIA. Nokia makes awesome handsets. Too bad that they are stuck with MS to make stupid windows phones. Which is why if there was a Nokia Android right now, we'd know who can beat Samsung and who has the ability to really make the best Android handset.

Is Nokia making an Android phone? Otherwise who cares.

Android obviously cares. iPhone customers generally aren't going anywhere. If anyone is going to lose market to WP or Blackberry, it will be Android devices. This IMO is why Samsung has gotten not only cold feet, but now seems Hell-bent on dissing a platform they previously whole-heartedly embraced. It may not be huge in the short-term, but by a thousand small chips and divots, there will be an equalizing of the playing field. With Apple poised to drop a low-end device soon, and Windows 8 convertibles and tablets slowly climbing into the market, there will be a reckoning coming.
