it has nothing to do with Android and everything to do with companies themselves. Samsung seems to be breaking all kinds of records and outselling Apple 2-to-1 with MONSTER profits thanks to Android. So the point is moot. It just shows it's not Android, it's the company making the hardware.
Nokia is more like Samsung rather than HTC.
Silly talk! MS gave Nokia billions of dollars!! That was the important aspect of this relationship. Google chose Moto as a partner, Apple is Apple and Nokia has who to work with? Nokia needs a marketing campaign to stay afloat. Word of mouth is not good enough anymore. Apple advertises like crazy and so does Samsung. We see their commercials all the time. Nokia had the beta test ads and then stopped after about a month. They need to put more money or effort into the phones they want people to buy. A huge marketing blitz on TV not the "smoked" stuff for at least 6 months and I think we would see the needle move.
