re: Euronews: Nokia Still in Dire Straits Nokia needs to sell more than just WP handsets on the smartphone front. WP is just never going to be big. We are approaching three years and the second release and it is still a failure. Full year sales still doesn't equal a single quarter for Symbian handsets; last full year before the axe fell was 134 million. Even MeeGo (N9) sold more than WP when Nokia released it. Nokia tried to bury the N9 as much as they could. Imagine if they actually sold it globally and put some marketing behind it.

Nokia just needs to be like Samsung, HTC, etc. They sell Android and WP handsets. Samsung will be selling Tizen as well. You have Sailfish, Ubuntu and Firefox coming out soon as well. If Nokia doesn't want Android, then I can guarantee that Sailfish (ex Nokia employees) as well as Firefox and Ubuntu would welcome Nokia. They could bring a lot of expertise and improvements to the OS with the excellent hardware that Nokia is known for. This is the only hope for Nokia.

re: Euronews: Nokia Still in Dire Straits Worst song of the 80s, IMO:


No wait, scratch that, not in my opinion, just in cold, hard fact.

re: Euronews: Nokia Still in Dire Straits I wish we hadn't mentioned Dire Straits -- now I have dire early 1980s music boring into my brain.... though I'm sure we could find a way to use 'Money for Nothing' somewhere in the coverage...
