This isn't a joke: but why can't Nokia be helpful regarding Lumia 800/900 charging problems. There is a large majority of units which are faulty and even people with contracts are being told it won't be covered under warranty by Nokia care points. Utterly terrible customer service.

Questions for Nokia:

You recently announced plans to become the “where” company, a field dominated by Google. How do you plan to challenge Google’s stranglehold on mobile search?

Do you foresee any future integration between Bing’s online search and Navteq’s mapping services? Perhaps making Nokia synonymous with “search” and not just “where.”

Do you have any products or services planned to attack the business sector?

(assuming a successor to the Lumia 610 is not announced tomorrow)
Do you plan to continue using Windows Phone 7.8 to build low-end devices or do you believe that Windows Phone 8 can be scaled down fast enough to make a significant dent in emerging markets?

Regarding your philosophy on app development… How much does backward compatibility factor into the development process?

While Nokia Drive becoming the default GPS system on Windows Phone 8 is huge, it does de-value your own products just a little. How will Nokia differentiate themselves without the advantage of being the only OEM that offers free voice guided turn-by-turn?

Any chance of a Nokia Windows Phone with a physical keyboard?

Why do you feel the need to replace the Windows Phone Marketplace icon? It's obnoxious. The default looks better.

Is Nokia Drive going to be available on all WP7.8 devices or only WP8 devices?

One question. Will the Nokia WP8 devices be arriving to Japanese carriers?

Will there be WP8 iterations of Nokia Business Phones (E-series) with native SIP clients and other business centric features?

Hi there Neowin crew.

Here is my question - it is more of a request though.

Here in South Africa, the stats currently bode very well for Nokia to remain in control of the market. Nevertheless, the focus here has been on the low end of the market. South Africa is a burgeoning market and I feel that Nokia should put its efforts into expanding its range of smartphone WP (7.8 and 8) devices here because there is clearly an opportunity for growth.

The following are the smartphone and overall mobile device stats in the country:
- There are currently 15.9m people in South Africa with a Nokia cell phone. The next most popular is Samsung, with 6.2m users. Just less than 50,000 have an iPhone. Eighty20.co.za (03/09/2012).
- Nokia and BlackBerry dominate SA smartphone market. Out of the 10million smartphones in SA, just over 4million are Nokias while 4.8million are BlackBerrys. Android runs on just about 800,000 devices while iPhones? well see fact above. MyBroadband (14/08/2012)

As you can see, we are a Nokia country.

My problem is that, as a current Symbian S60 device owner wanting to see and have a feel of the new OS that Nokia is now using, I do not see anywhere where I can experience it before I buy. Therefore my question is, why is it that Nokia is not exposing WP OS to the public here through live devices. All I see are dummy Lumia 800/900s and no one can experience the awesomeness of the new OS.

My request therefore is, please Nokia, encourage distributors (resell outlets) to display live devices so that people see and feel how good the OS is particularly the in coming version (WP8 and Win8). Everywhere there are Android devices that people can test out but none of this is available for WP7.x Nokia devices.

In short - Are we going to (or can we) see more live WP Nokia devices at retail stores (network operator and other resell shops) in South Africa?

P.S. There are iStores with at least 20 live iDevices at almost every major mall in Johannesburg.

My question...

Will Windows Phone 8 include the ability to sync calendar, tasks, contacts, etc. directly with desktop applications, like Outlook? If not, what are Nokia's thoughts on the absence of this feature and it's importance?

My question, as someone who is patiently waiting to buy a Windows 8 handset - Why couldn't Nokia have been a bit more forthcoming with pricing information, and availability information on the 820 and 920? The handsets got "announced" and bits of information were leaking out, they were doing promotional pieces and seemingly giving the handsets out to bloggers to generate some buzz - but there was absolutely no information on when they'd be available in which regions and for how much. In the meantime HTC released prices for their Windows 8 handsets.

So my question is why didn't Nokia release this information sooner and why is there still no actual concrete information on pricing, etc?
