Nokia shares have just slided to their lowest in 16 years, hitting the rock bottom of 1.50 euro (around $1.9), but the company is saying that by the end of 2013 users would…

I like the colors. In a sea of black (and some white) phones, the colors stand out and really make the phone feel more personalized, like the older phones when you had a selection of colors or faceplates. Almost every time I pull out my cyan Lumia 900 out in public, someone is intrigued by its uniqueness

i don't think other people adopting the colors will really change things
nokia has always had a reputation for having fairly beautifully designed and well built phones
even if they copy the colors, nokia will still have the design
i mean, has anyone come up with any copies even close to the minimilistic beauty of the n9/lumia 800/900?
i haven't seen it yet
the only thing that comes close is the HTC one series or some of the xperia phones
and even then it is a different idea

well, it was a rough time for both nokia and sony ericsson (which is sony nowadays). remember when samsuck and appfag were no where near being leading the cellphone market (call it smartphone market these days), can't wait for the day nokia and sony get back to the top! not because i'm a fan of both companies, but because they deserve me being a fan! the hardware they use is just amazing, the sleek designs and the features they use in their software (refardless it's symbian, meego, android, windows mobile or a potato).
hail kings of phones, sony and nokia.

Honestly, I kind of like phones that have an option of different colors and face plates. Right now, the only way to make a phone more customized on the outside is to buy a case, but that adds bulk to the phone itself. I'm kind of tired of the black (and white) phones and my favorite color is black. >_>

Why are they all bright colors? I'd like something more rigid and dark, because I am a male.

in every model of lumia, they provide a neutral palette, as in black and gray for those who do not want the bright color casing

I'm not buying it, you can always buy a colorful case.
