Nokia planning retail holiday campaign, wants to hire you

With Microsoft gearing up to open pop-up shops all over the US to help increase its footprint this holiday season, Nokia now appears to be doing the same. In a job posting obtained by WPcentral, Nokia is looking to hire college students this holiday season for a retail push of its products.

The idea is not new, in fact, Nokia has done it previously in other parts of the world but this time it is bringing the shops to the US to surely push the latest Windows Phone products the company will be releasing in the next few weeks.

Okay since I can't write all what I already said yesterday to another fanboy I'll just copy paste.

They do have cashflow, enough of it. Even if smartphones are more popular than S40 and Symbian, they are still selling them well enough. Most of the cash that they are burning trough are R&D costs that the S40 sales can't cover, most of the R&D goes under WP at this point. Nokia-Siemens is also doing well.

Nokia stocks are doing alright in both NYSE and Helsinki, so I have no idea what you are talking about?

Nokias IP's are probably worth more than their current cash on hand so they can always use that as a levrege.

Going with WP was a mistake. That's your opinion not a fact, that the WP7 sales were avrage I do agree but thats mainly because MS rushed it on CE and now can't port WP8 to it.

While we are on the subject of WP and MS, MS is paying Nokia around a billion a year for them to develope better WP phones, Google is paying Android OEM's zip, nada, nul, yeah it was a bad decision I guess.

Apple is paying Nokia on each phone they sell, another cashflow that you said didn't exsist.

Closing down Finlands factories is no news to anyone if you would actually read their Quarter reports but since you can only quote the "Googla finance" site I'm guessing I didn't expect much from that. Finlands avrage salaries start from €1500, Chinese..well around ~€300-400. In current situation of course it's better for them to move to China, like everyone else.

USA market share shows nothing compared to the deal they made with the biggest Chinese operator, China mobile. If they would to be sucsesful there they'll be alright even on that one market alone.

By saying stocks are doing well I mean that they are keeping stable for now, not that price wise they are doing well.

Now, if you want to argue with me first go read their Q2 report in detail and come back to me with some facts instead of "ANDROIDZZZ ZOMG!!!111ONE". Kids aren't alright these days.

Oh god. Why do I even bother with you...

Why do you? He isn't a person who will be convinced of anything. Just skip over his posts.

I'm on Verizon just like a good chunk of other people in the US. No Lumia on Verizon means zero interest in Nokia again.

There is a Lumia coming out for Verizon.

If this was in the UK, I'd totally sign up.

They did this in the UK when the Lumia 800 was released. Hopefully they'll do it again for the 920.

off topic but what happened to that promotion nokia had where they would let you try out a lumina for a few weeks? i signed up but have heard nothing back? false advertisement?

Did you sign up for the 920? If so they probably don't have units ready yet.

If you did for the 900 keep waiting, people on xda are slowly receiving theirs.

If you read the site, it's intended for people who own blogs or some other form of social media where people would be able to read their impressions of the Lumia. It's not meant for just anyone to try it out.

im pretty sure it was for anyone who agreed to try one out.

if true that's a load of BS.

Definitely not a load of BS. Companies don't hand out review units to average people.

it isn't that difficult to persuade someone to choose a Lumia over an iPhone.......

If that was the case Nokia's market share would be flying high, the fact is Windows Phone is still very hard to sell.

5 million iphone over a weekend prove you wrong.

Lumia all version will hit 5 million in 4 months maybe

They're not hard to sell if you actually try. The fact is that Microsoft and Nokia really haven't been trying all that hard to market the platform and the phones respectively. I don't recall seeing a single ad for them on TV, although I did see a couple at the cinema right after WP7 launched, but nothing recently.

On the Apple side though, I see two or three adverts a night for iPhone or iPad. Including the most recent hypocritical one about your ears not being round, so why should your headphones be round. When Apple themselves have been using round headphones forever. Guess they invented "in ear" headphones though, right?

you think they are not trying? They are trying like a beggar who is desperate to get something. even with those desperation people dont seem to buy it.

They certainly aren't trying as hard as Microsoft is trying with Surface. Which is bizarre.

The one company who try hard is MS/Nokia trying to sell Lumia.
