I wish If Nokia would have adopted Android then the Header would have been "Nokia is d Largest Android Manufacturer".

I seriously disagree. If Nokia entered the fray with Android OS, all it could hope for is fight for second place against HTC, and later down the line against Motorola. They probably are even too late for second place. There's room for only two big oems in Android: No.1 oem Samsung. No.2 oem HTC, or later on Motorola, or maybe even Sony. I don't think Nokia is playing for 2nd place. They want to be top dog which can only happen with WP7/WP8 takes more market share in 2013. Maybe even earlier if Tango takes traction in developing and underdevelop markets later this year.

even if they only took the third place of Android manufacturers, they would still have at least 10 times more units sold than with WP... possibly even higher profit per unit (i'm not sure what to think of those massive cash exchanges between MS and Nokia...) as Android is free... Nokia Maps would kick ass on Android... and those cameras :P and great sounding music chips... and clear black amoleds... oh, if only...

Design wise, nothing in AT&T's lineup can touch it. Specs wise, it gets murdered by everyone. If priced accordingly, it may be very successful. But with the iPhone 4 8GB sitting at $100, Nokia really needs to make theirs stand out, and as to convince people that there isn't anything special about an iPhone.

We can't conclude anything about Nokia DOA status right now. Because there is still - U.S Nokia WP8/W8 - Nokia W8 Tablets - Low Cost Nokia WP Tango - Microsoft W8 Desktop If all these 4 fails, then Nokia is dead. However I doubt so far. I'm holding so much patience for Windows Phone 8, and I know many of my friends doing same.

I truly believe WP7 would be more popular in the U.S. if Verizon offered a couple of the better devices and their sales personnel at least pretended it is a viable alternative to the other OSes. I think Verizon has the ability to make it more popular if it wants to...
