It seems not just smartphone camera fans, but all point and shoot camera fans just gave up everything for 1020. That bags the next question, is Nokia ready ?
What a tough position to be in for Nokia...They are good at supply chain logistics, R&D and Manufacturing. I'm sure they will ramp up to meet market demands. Elop is a good leader and he has a great company to back him up. The stock market is a good place to play the "Follow the leader" game. WS anal ysts, not so much.
This Lumia 1020 is the only WP which I gave exception to as far as Nokia essential focus on the mid range is concern. Yes the demand is looking to be very high not just this christmas but for a long time coming,, not because of just the usual smartphone crowd , but those wanting an ultra portable and ultra sophisicated smart camera systems that will replace all point and shoot and entry level DSLR.
So in a way Nokia has just invented a new market like Apple did in 2007. The big difference accordingly to industry watchers is how in the world Nokia leap front so far that got not just Apple and Samsung but Nikon , Cannon and Olympus scratching their heads.
wrong a camera buff will buy a canon/nikon dslr. This will be another loseria failure like 900,925,etc.
get real NA sales are falling and aapl will nuke the mid mkt after communist china handset makers sow up that
Maybe or maybe not...opinion's are like butts, we all have one. All pro's, serious shutterbugs and everyone else for that matter will want a Nokia 1020 around when they are not carrying the heavy hardware. They will want it to record the world by taking candid quick shots, video and the communications world will keep advancing. Kudos to Nokia R&D for proving where the future is going.
Lets wait and see how long it takes Apple, Google, Samsung, Facebook and everyone else in the tech world to announce they will have something better, just wait and it will be coming along soon. In the mean time drones can buy into the Android dead end and line up in front of the Apple store waiting for the iWatch.
So wrong you are. You'll be kicked out of the strip club in a second with your dslr. What about those pictures of your girlfriend sleeping naked on the bed? You think your girlfriend is going to let you bring a dslr into her apartment. Your only chance is to have your cell phone ready. What about those pictures of your twig you send to your other girlfriends? You going to use a dslr for those? I don't think so.
I only can imagine that NOK already has business contingency plans laid out. One would hope that their plans are robust enough to counter any shortage scenarios given their past situations.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
It also will be a huge step toward becoming more independent from "loving almost "sexual" relationship" and give NOK stronger bargaining position to renegotiate healthier relationship with MS if Nok chooses to.
