      How could the board and shareholders approve that decision? I would consider this move a conflict of interest considering his prior position with Microsoft. No wonder wall street didn't approve of that announcement

      They are both good companies who allowed themselves to fall behind the competition. It will be a long road for them to gain a comfortable share of the market but if it can be done then these two companies are the ones to do it.

      I think Nokia should have gone for android. Since Nokia is the best company in the market for its phones. I know many people gone say here that, the iPhone is the best but let me tell u the truth, iPhone is best for its IOS only. I didn't buy my iPhone because of the hardware of the phone, i bought it because i liked the iPhone software. iPhone's operating system is the best and there is no doubt about it. And i think that's the reason apple will never let any other company use their operating system coz everyone know that if apple will do that it will be suicide for iPhone and apple by itself.

      I am so happy for them. For my part, I was very happy to switch to a Verizon iPhone yesterday after 3-1/2 years on AT&T. I can now actually make phone calls with my iPhone ... phone calls that go through the first time ... phone calls where the person I call can hear me and I can hear them ... phone calls that aren't disconnected before we're done talking ... that's priceless, ain't it?

      It's easy to see this as a deal between two failing companies that have forgotten how to innovate. But they could just as easily learn to swim together as sink together.

      Will these new Nokia phones have changeable color face plates and that Snake game? That would be the fucking bomb.

      I would like to see a new idea for The smart phone technology, not a repeated idea developed on a different Plattform, inovation is The only way to create market share, not just a faster an improved device that looks cool! Come up with something that will kill iPhone and replace it , forget competition of the same format..... Invent a hybrid breed that will kill all! Amen !

      Great.If Nokia release a WP7 handset with a 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen I will buy it. I'm done with having to jailbreak my iPhone just to get it to work.

      nokia is smart to do this because they know that microsoft aka xbox is the king of gaming never mess with a video game company because all the hackers in the world will follow especially xbox.all the genius hackers in the world either play playstation or xbox 360 and they know when microsoft launches there game titles everyone is going to want to play games like halo,gears of war,call of duty.badcompany.once these titles are release on windows 7 all hackers will move to jailbreak it just to play those games.how many people pay 50$ a year just to play xbox games and how many people have windows 7 on there pc.face it but the phone will work well with xbox live and with windows 7 on pc.the only threat microsoft will have is the playstation phone.after this happens your angry bird app will no longer feel like nintendo anymore.microsoft has been hacked many times so windows 7 wont be a problem to hack and jailbreaking is already been done by a group of hackers it was posted on redmond pie.com

      Too many people I know have had major problems with Samsung handsets.If I went Android I'd probably wait for a device running the Nvidia Tegra II processor. LG's Optimus 2X is close. Does Android have an equivalent of the combination of ToDo (ex iTunes) and Lockinfo (cydia Store), that allows me to see my day's agenda, being appointments AND tasks, on the lockscreen?I mucked around with a HTC WP7 phone in a shop recently and it basically does the combined Calendar/Todo list thing out of the box. Nokia may have lost their way with smartphones but their legnendary reliability is attractive.I had several Nokia handsets before the iPhone and none ever failed. I keep my old Nokia as a backup & for remote area travel/trekking where its superior signal strength and battery life (at least a week) are necessary.BTW, that mid-range Nokia could do the Calendar/task thing on the lockscreen out of the box too.

      I've never had any probs with my nokias. They do produce the occational "lemon". Google the reviews before you part with your cash bud. Don't get me wrong I love my iPhone but even at iPhone4 level there are still functions and features I expect as part of the default system (they've been around for years. even on cheap n' nasty budget phones). The only way I can access these is to jailbreak, thanks to apple's holier that thou attitude). I'm afraid it appears that you apply biased rules when appraising devices from manufactures not calling themselves apple.If it wern't for the dev teams crackin work on opening up the iphone through jailbreaking I wouldn't even wipe my ass with an "out of the box" iphone. I doubt my opinion will change too much with the release of number 5.

      Willam Gates' shares in Microsoft went up with +9%.The manual to make sure your mobile OS will be the most used on the planet earth:1. First put a human trojan horse smack in the middle of the worlds largest mobile devices manufacturers board.2. Fire as many symbian and MeeGo engineers/developers as possible.3. Scream FIRE as loud as possible after burning down the companies history and mission statements.4. Sign a agreement with Microsoft to make WP7 as the new standard OS for Nokia mobile devices.Microsoft finally has its own succesful mobile hardware division after all the fails.When Wall Street opens this monday im buying Microsoft stock!!!
