925 is no answer to HTC one, it is not good enough to put out a product that is better than what you had before, you have to put out a product that beats the best that competition has to offer. We keep getting disappointment after disappointment. Elop, and the board has to go, they drop the ball on strategy, product designs, and manufacturing.
There is no reason why Nokia with very strong franchse and footprint 3 years ago, would not have been where Samsung is today. Elop not only picked the wrong platform and imazingly limited his option to a platform that had App. limitations, and customer resistant, his first phone weighed as much as a paper weight. This man is epidemy of stupitidy, Nokia Fire him please, please, but then again you guys at the board are mentally challenged too, otherwise you would have better pick to begin with.
He took over Boston Chicken as CEO when it was hot, and a few years later under his watch, company went bankropt. The man lacks common sense. His excuse for going with Window phone was that he wanted to be diffrentiated from others, are you kidding, you have to read the lable to figure who is the manufaturer of the hardware, and there was no exclusivity. I sold most of my share. I lost hope specially when my Lumia 900 started acting up and my wife had to take hers in to be replaced, and after the recent report showing they are losing bad on feature phones.
According to Citi analysts he expected this to not flow due to position and location and has no bearing on the play, that is a relief. Don't sell waite until analyst get the word out. I cancelled a sell order I had placed for tomorrow.
He abandones one " sinking ship " for another sinking ship ( Microsoft). Board should fire Elop and start offering Android phones, as well as Window phone, exclusivity was one hell of a moronic act. why pay for something your customers do not want, where what your customers want is free, why is this man so stupid.
and it is selling like hot cake. If they can sell the stuff for a lot more money and sell it fast, why should they alocate their inventory for US, I think it is about bragging right, real business is in China.
go to 360buyDOTcom and then type in Lumia 920, the Lumia 920T black alone has almost double the reviews that Amazon US has for Lumia 920 black here, and 920T has not been out that long. I think there is going to be a major surprise on earning. Finally Nokia has said screw US, and concentrate on their core strength, which is emerging market. Stock was at $20 when they had no smart phone here, so they can do very well outside US. I am buying more tomorrow, chart looks fabulous as well.
Stopped by ATT store today and checked Z10, difficult to operate and not imprresive at all, and nobody was looking at the phone. they had sold 2 phone yesterday, the first day at the otherwise busy store. I think Nokia is going to pick up the enterprise business, enterprise is already married to window and Lumia will be the logical choice.
are kidding, stock was at teen when he took over despite the symbian, he openned his fat mouth and alienated developers by saying that he was going to abandone while he is still selling it, he went with a platform that people just don't want, and he has to pay Billions for using it, he cut the legs off of his manufacturing capacity and couldn't deliver Lumias when there was demand. He has been from job to job and has not been able to hold on to one for more than a year, but often less than a year. Any manager including myself would not hire anyone with his resume.
I was looking at Elop's background, this man has been a failure all throught his career, either running companies to the groun ( Boston Chicken ), or getting fired after one year at the job, what in the world the incompetent board of directors were thinking hiring him to run Nokia. What they should do and do it quickly fire this guy and hire someone with better judgement. After all the speculation about what the new product was going to be at european show, there was nothing, are kidding? nothing?
This is the most incompetent man on planet, Nokia got doped by Microsoft, you got to be kidding, push their sorry #$%$, nobody wanted platform and pay billions for it against free, and everybody wanted Android platform, I can not understant how low one's intteligence can go, fire the fat man.
This mangement is ignorant, changing the name to th
