It's too bad NOK can't keep the momentum alive. The problem is windows smart phones really aren't keeping up with the competition. NOK needs something better to increase growth and bring it back to profitability.
You're quite right. No one wants any evilware phones with it's limited infantile ui and next to no apps.
It's really lipstick on dying pig. Even 6 yrs ago they had a major job at a technical conference
getting any developers to go to a session on db admin under evilware. It's too buggy and too controlling.
Really good developers know it's a legacy platform and don't want to work on it. So naturally you're
not going to get innovation there. And it's run by a major league screw up.
Just yesterday bloomberg had a story on missing the trend to larger sized devices.

Yeah, it needs to axe Elop now. Hey Elop, talking about how beautiful your daughter looks on a Nokia isn't going to persuade consumers. For the love of God, leave - you have been a failure from the start. Just go.
Well not from the evil empire's standpoint. If this idot didn't choose to go that way you bet the other
asian oem's would have told the greedy fat cost save bonus addicated jabber of redmond to get
stuffed, and without something in mobile that would have looked very bad indeed. They invest a little
money and get a ton more back plus buy time to do their own phone. The real problem is
