Nope- nowhere but up, in my humble, unimportant opinion. I have giving my thought on this in other posts, so I will shorten it: Nokia knew where they were headed in 2011 while moving to W7, they were prepared ( quote- "While announcing the downgrade, Moody's did say that Nokia has enough liquidity and cash to survive while it makes the transition from offering Symbian powered models to producing its new Windows Phone 7 flavored phones.), and without having to pour tons of money into Symbian development and upkeep they stand to become much more profitable.

Why is it that PA is always posting bad news about Nokia even news that are not posted on other mayor websites, I know this is just news but seriously, I'm thinking that PA enjoys the bad news about Nokia. The hate is starting to get pretty obvious.

They have been fair. They have given a lot of airtime to the upcoming Sea Ray. Just from a company side, Nokia's transition has been very, very painful since late last year.

Besides- if it bleeds, it leads. True for all news.

Well spoken. It seems very obvious that the mass wants Nokia to fail in every way possible. If Motorola can rise from the ashes, I see why Nokia can't do the same. Prove the naysayers wrong and GOOD LUCK NOKIA!

I hope they do not push out unprepared handsets just to soften this blow. It is so important their first Windows powered, Mango flavored devices be well-recieved hits.

Also wish they had decided to keep a line of MeeGo devices supported. That would have helped in the transition, I think. That N9 had people excited.

I remember that Motorola was even worse than this and they recovered and even became one of the most important Android handset manufacturers, so Nokia still has many chances to get back.

everything I say is constructive. Just that I tend to hurt feelings whenever I talk.

say what ever you want until holidays all of you who want Nokia to fail you wont believe in your eyes you will make ques for a N9 or wp Nokia makes the best smartPHONES and PHONES (because first is a phone and then all the others) i have an N8 from december 2010 and i wont change it for any android or i phone.

I saw the teardown of galaxy s II in fcc and i am sorry but it was made to fast and i saw the photow of N8 which in quality was out of space so stay you will never have the sence of a quality product
