On February 10, 2011, Nokia (NOK) and Microsoft (MSFT) released a statement announcing plans for a partnership to develop a global ecosystem. The agreement specified that Nokia would join ranks with the Windows operating system as an original equipment maker. In broad terms, Microsoft would put up the marketing cash and software, in exchange for near exclusive access to Nokia hardware as an ecosystem provider. Before the ink dried on this partnership, however, Microsoft had already closed deals with Huawei Technologies and Samsung (SSNHY.OB) to also manufacture Windows phones. Yes, Microsoft is notorious for throwing its own partners beneath the bus and forcing original equipment makers to compete against each other until they implode financially. Nokia is following in the loss leading footsteps of both Dell (DELL) and Hewlett Packard (HPQ). Microsoft is the cancer.

people like that are the reason people get so paranoid about stocks and rush to buy what ever crap they are pandering this month..... kinda like the BUY GOLD! OR DIE BROKE! people on tv..... when in reality gold could end up worthless and salt could go back to being worth more then gold..... hold on gotta go hoard salt


I just love the fact they are complaining MS has other people making phones besides Nokia.... MS is an OS company they just "helped" nokia move to windows phone os.... of course MS will take as many partners as they can get

 

the guy writing this is an idiot.... he starts off making fun of the nokia MS partnership then turns it into a why Apple is great article and how MS can't compete since Apple sold 31 million phones but least out the fact MS sells way more other things then apple does at magnitudes the sales numbers more....

lol

But on a serious note, (or at least a personal opinion) Nokia could have made both markets happy if they kept symbian development going, Windows phones for those who want it, symbian for those who don't, but still want the latest Nokias

I'm not 100% sure, but I think the 808 was supposed to be the last in the symbian line, it'll be supported for a year but after that, can't say (though I could be wrong)

I like the new lumia flagship, but I found myself eith unable or unwilling to move to Windows phone OS, but that's just me, one out of millions who are satified with their nokia devices, in an ideal world I would like to see that phone with symbian but alas it is the voice of one man, and a voice that in the grand scheme of things isn't going to matter, or change anything.

I'll re explain, I'm not 100% sure what they're going to do, I'm talking about symbian belle or newer for flagships, I think asha was kept alive for Nokia Feature phones, not Smartphones (again, I could be wrong, and this is about the limit of what I know on the subject, <willing to learn more sometime>)
