    I don't know, to me it seems the nokia phones are already as aptly named as they can be.

    In finland we have a saying "menneen talven lumia", directly translated: "last winter's snow", meaning: a thing that is old news, something that no one remembers anymore. One can only wonder if this was the inspiration for the latest line of nokia phones.

    I get the impression Nokia did a better q4 than most of the Android phone makers?
    Around here Lumia 920 is a decently popular phone at least.

    Nokia as a whole yes. But the smartphone division is still losing money. In North America they did well thanks to a one-time payment from RIM.

    This just in: The value of Nokia has plummeted by 1.8 Billion in the last 24hours.

    Also, apparently they are getting a new member on their board of directors, some woman named Elizabeth Doherty, with no experience from the tech industry. -_- WTF Nokia!?

    Nokia has been recently caught violating user privacy: Nokia cell phones route secure https connections via their own servers and decrypt your data
    Well, that's what you can expect from proprietary corporations and proprietary software: they always try to fool their customers and treating them like retards. That's one of major reasons to stay away from these as far as you can. I'm personally consider proprietary software untrusted by default. Availability of source is a good indication that program vendor respects fair play. Sure, it's dumb to release sources if you backdoored and trojanized something: this increases chance to get caught and allows to uncloak this treason faster.

    Oh... MS wants their market share. They want to be like an apple. Unfortunately for them, they're not an apple. They're NUTS.

    But since, as usual, the only who lose are the end users, given that competition will decrease while the top managers will keep their huge benefit in any case, is pretended that a system where few people command without assuming any financial responsibility on their shoulders, is perfect.
    It's sad how nokia is ruined.
