They should ditch Elop, continue with Meego but keep the Windows Phone smartphones in their line up. In certain European countries, Lumia 800 manage to even outsell iPhone 4S, so it's not a lost cause.
I do think, however, that their Win 8 tablet will probably sell extremely well.

I guess they just try for the toy/kiddy design. It worked well for Apple, ever since they made computers look like toys, their sales went up.

Nokia is still in business??

Probably because of the $44 million that Microsoft gave them for marketing.

Does any of this have anything to do with Amiga's?

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.


I loved my n900 they just dropped support too soon.  Meego was looking good but then they stopped the official launch for the n900

No, luckily it is "Other Operating Systems" though, so it's okay.


Though the Amiga did have AmigaBASIC which was Microsoft BASIC.

Maybe not now but in the near future when Nokia go bankrupt as Commodore, her fans will be in the same situation. ;)

I'm stuck with T-Mobile for another year, so I picked up a Nokia Lumia 710 to replace my crappy Samsung Vibrant stuck on Android 2.2.  The first and biggest thing I will say is, there's no "useful" apps on WP7.5 like there are on Android (or iOS).  However, once I got past that for the first week or two, I've actually found the thing to be better in a few ways:

1)  The OS is constantly responsive, no stuttering like I experience with Android, comparing even to a Tegra 2 tablet running ICS / 4.0.

2.)  GPS locks on instantly - a huge issue with the Vibrant, and apparently still an issue with select Samsung Galaxy devices)

3.)  Battery life is awesome, can easily go over 36 hours of mild to medium usage, again compared to my Vibrant that lasts about only 18 hours.

4.)  On the fly locational searches work well - It passed the "girlfriend" test in finding the phone number to the corner pizza shop.  Android would pull up a browser with a whole lot of links to click; Windows Phone brought up something similar to a contact list (even though they were not in my contacts), displaying addresses and phone numbers.  Definitely a much cleaner solution when you're looking for contact info.

Overall, I'm impressed with it, but the platform really needs more developers to port their apps over from Android or iOS.

That I agree with..
Still have my Nokia 770, which is fun.
At half the speed, it still feels faster than my Android tablet.

Tablet's a bit better for reading tho.. ;-)

At long last, an objective look at Nokia/WP. Sigh... Thanks!

Having one, I have to agree it's responsive (though although the OS is extremly fluid & responsive, this cannot be said of a lot of third party apps unfortunately) and lacks some good apps (it's not about the number, they should let this to Google&Apple, but about having the necessary good apps...)

Not really. Which is probably why it's in the "Other Operating Systems" section ;-)

I know, I understand that. I'd just like to see more Amiga threads on amiga.org as recently it seems a bit lost to me.
Never mind... I'll survive! :crazy:

I have a Nokia 2310 btw.  It can't even manage snake without slowing down. LOL
