went with my wife to buy a new Nokia. She likes the 925. She feels the 1020 camera is too much.
Sales rep stated yesterday was crazy due to iphone. All sold out. Constant calls on the phone today to see if they have stock. Sales rep had Android phone. Stated he thinks Apple has clearly lost their innovation edge years ago. States most Apple buyers have no clue about their phone. While setting my wife's phone I asked him how many Nokias they sell a week. He said "you don't want to know". Maybe 1-2 a week at most. States everyone wants a Samsung or Apple. He stated he used the 920 for several weeks and had no major issues with it.
Even though I have sold 90% of my NOK shares, I am still loyal to Nokia phones. Just don't understand why they are not more popular. My wife loves her Lumia 925. Nice phone.
Gee maybe cause there's no software and the build quality is nonexistent like the charger breaks after only a few months, you can't get the phone fixed and if you swap it out the brain dead backup utility can only restore to the original device.
There's a different story on the other side of the earth..Russia, India,Brazil, Indonesia & Europe is about to become news about escalating sales for the Lumia...Only in North America will you hear weakness of the Lumia line....When Msft takes over, America will adapt those phones, phablets & tablets....Nokia's devices are the most superior from any devices in the market in terms of quality.....Msft needs to get those apps developers to adapt the W8 & Wp8 OS faster..hopefully by end next year full adaption is in place.
Seriously you don't own one of these loseria devices the one place I can get one of these crappies
fixed is a shop in chinatown.
Devs are never going to invest in this platform is just too small and no big cash incentives from evil empire so with like 25X more users and growing by the day on android no going to happen.
Still think that there's a chance the deal blows up once the loseria sales drop against appl and sam
offerings crush them like the bug.
It is very hard to get someone to switch eco-systems. Now that I have spent a year with WP8 I see no reason to switch to another platform, a certain inertia sets in with your mindset. It's too much work to switch. My friends are iPhone people and they seem to like my 928 a lot but they are too entrenched in the iPhone to switch. At this point I don't care whose phones sell as long as NOK gets it royalties.
I have still only seen 2-3 Lumia's in people's hands in public. who knows... much of it is that in the US Microsoft is thought of as very 'uncool' , old fashioned etc among kids. They want what is cool, plain and simple.
You can tell a 14 yr old all day about Miles Davis or wagner and they will still go buy Miley Cyrus and Britney Speers...
You need a killer design to overcome that, and WP8 is certainly not that.. the hardware is nice but it does not stand out enough. People want a 5 inch screen with no bezel now. they want a totally customizable feature set. In a year it will be something else... who knows what. But you can bet it won't come from Microsoft, "where innovation goes to die".
Don't be so sure calbucks. Microsoft is working on changing their ridged corporate culture where no one gets anything done because of restrictions and all time spent on meetings for product reviews. Why do you think Ballmer is leaving? He has been a poison for MSFT's innovation but that is soon to change. Watch and see the transformation. It shall be glorious, and intriguing to watch. With nokia under it's belt they will not lose again. It will be schweet! I will soon invest in MSFT as well as NOK.
