Nokia to invest in new materials and tech, be transparent about software updates
posted by Ray S. / Jul 19, 2012, 8:18 AM
In addition, Stephen Elop, Nokia CEO, explained that the manufacturer is committed to maintaining full transparency when it comes to software updates. In contrast to most Android manufacturers, Nokia will try to communicate very clearly to existing Lumia owners exactly what updates they are going to receive. This attitude should also be found in the company's communication with future Nokia customers, who are going to purchase the company's Windows Phone 8 handsets, once they become available.
Although we're quite interested to learn exactly what innovation Nokia has in store for us, we have no idea when this might happen. Still, there's some slight chance that the manufacturer will reveal something new on September 7, when it is promising to announce something amazing.

Android doesn't have the best update record, I know, I've been using them since it was first released. That being said, just about every phone you buy with Android will receive at least one update, high end ones maybe two or three updates. In comparison, Nokia and MS dropped the ball when people bought new phones only to find they weren't getting W8. The transparency is a great policy, it's just like everything else Nokia is doing, too late.

I am going to half agree, and half disagree. As far as Android goes, I think the future with ICS and JB devices are going to be much better about support and updates. I am not so much talking about the next OS update as I am Software and firmware updates. Things that users truly need. Dumding down the UI's are a great indicator that Android manufacturers realize this is an area they can improve in. But Nokia is not finished. The slightly better performance in sales than what "experts" predicted, Microsoft's deep pockets, their outstanding support of their 900 when it had problems at launch, and their continued desire to produce exclusives and unique devices really paint a decent portrait of where Nokia could be in 18 months or so. If they survive Q3........
