How about "The majority of Nokia's fan base still prefer a proprietary OS" or "The majority of Nokia's fan base want Nokia to give meego a decent shot", or "The majority of Nokia’s fan base still prefer all the functionality of older Nokia phones". With any of these, and your, headlines. Its pointless. Aint gonna happen under current leadership. Facts, user opinions, sales, marketshare, share price, etc. Its windows phone all the way, regardless of the above.
