Looking at the sales i had been reading about how Nokia are outselling Apple due to east europe being a major part of this, but i had no idea the size.
I know everyone has there opinion on Nokia and Windows phones but my Nokia 520 is a good phone for £135 it may not do things as good as the iPhone5 or Galaxy S4 but it still does what i need it to do

Desperate times for Nokia, after its terrible decision to back Windows RT. It still posted a $347m loss for the first 6months this year, taking losses for the last 2 years to $3.6B even with Microsoft paying them $1B a year.
RT is on the verge of failure - with manufacturers deciding not to build any more RT tablets, as consumers realise that Windows 8RT, is not actually Windows 8.
How different could it have been if Nokia had just taken the low risk option of developing for Android?

They would have been an also ran, no way of differentiating themselves from competitors. Just another fish in a crowded google pond. Not saying it was the right choice, but can see the logic in it. Android customers tend to be loyal to the OS, not the hardware manufacturer.
Finally it's happening! I really like my Lumia 920. Not sure if things will get better or worse with this.

I think an Android phone with Nokia's camera and brand name would have been a winner.
Since Elop took over Nokia's share price has plummeted from $12 to $3 before todays announcement. And yet he is going to get a job back at Microsoft as a vice chairman. You'd think after bringing Nokia to its knees he'd be unemployable.
I think he never left Microsoft. Job done.

sad isn't it. I bet he gets a big fat bonus for it all as well.
I'd love to be in one of these golden positions - big paycheck for signing on, big wages, all expenses paid - then screw up within your first year, get a massive golden handshake and walk in to the next job...
So this guy joins Nokia, lowers their share price, then brokers a sale to his former employer...
My Dad decided to upgrade to a Lumia recently, and received a free Android tablet at the same time.
I've told him to consult me before doing such silly things but he never listens!
The Nokias are decent enough phones, and a free android tablet doesn't sound bad to me, depending on what it is.
What would you have suggested he buy?
Yup, I've got Lumia 920. Quite nice actually. Got Lumia 520 for my mum recently.
Q. How many Nokia Lumias can you get for $25m?
A. All of them.
