They've actually been in deep sh*it for a while already if you think about it.

Yeah, they haven't had a decent phone, since the late 90's. They fell far behind when the "smart phones" came out.

I really don't like this Metro interface, makes it look like it was made for kids ;)

They've already rolled it out to XBOX and Windows is next up for the 'kiddy look'

I disagree.  The N8 is a better phone and Symbian Belle is a much better OS than Android, IOS or Windows Phone 7.  They fell behind in apps due to them dragging their feet getting Symbian^3 and QT for mobile out and functional.

I'll be keeping my N8 until it dies.  The current crop of "smart phones" are horrible.  In some cases (iOS and WP7) my old Sony Walkman "feature phone" had more features, including multitasking.

I had an N95 8gb and I loved that phone. Had a solid music player, felt nice in the hand, screen size was great, could handle day to day web browsing alright and battery seemed decent.

Then I got the touchscreen phone that came out about a year later and it sucked. Kind of miss the N95 8gb.

iOS has multitasking

I had been a massive Nokia fan since the 90s.  However symbian fell well behind, maemo was a joke and did meego ever get a release.

Having used all mobile OS,  I really can not fault in any way iOS and an iPhone4.  And I am far far far from an apple fan boy.

I loved my N95 but then I used a decent touchcreen with good browser

No, they have pioneered the smartphones with Symbian, in fact first smartphone was Nokia 7650 with early Symbian.

Problem is they have sticked to Symbian when Android arrived, didn`t get the licence and boop - in two years Samsung and new players like HTC have "eaten the market out".

Pitty knowing Nokia was a name for easy use, reliability and support. And now they have to do Windows Phones.

Maemo on my N900 works well enough. Could be better (and Meego definitely is), but then again, N900 has an actual physical keyboard... :hammer:

Yes, it was released with "announced-to-be-last" N9. Which is rather fine piece of hardware. Except for the lack of keyboard, of course.

Some even think it might have sold more than Windows Phone (note, platform, not "Nokia Windows Phone" products)

-EDIT-

Of course, N9 was not released at all in some lesser markets such as United States, United Kingdom and Germany, while concentrating in the most important markets, such as Luxemburg.
