Re: Unexpected cool features on n950

You're only jealous.

- And so am I!

It is interesting to hear these snippets of info, though; we may never get our hands on our own N950, but owning an N9 IS a real proposition and I for one...

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

Thanks.

I have decided not to argue the point with those who believe that a falling share price is undeniable evidence of some conspiracy theory. As my Grandfather used to say: "you can't educate...

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

You stole the words right out of my mouth.

Windows Phone will only come into its own from Mango onwards, and Apollo will be the first opportunity to see any significant contribution from Nokia.

Re: N950 on ebay

Tempting though this is, the old advice that if something seems too go to be true it's probably best to avoid it should be applied liberally here.

If indeed there are any surplus N950's I'm sure...

Re: help me guys

I have an N8 which, to be honest, I use more than my N900 these days because of:

1) Better battery life - nearly twice the duration of my N900's new battery
2) Better camera - way, way better!...

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

The point I was making was that Nokia needed Microsoft a bit more than Microsoft needed Nokia. Prior to Feb 11th, WP7 was the bright young thing of Mobile, but Symbian was seen as the dinosaur stuck...

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

That is a very good point.

All the stores I visit are largely ignorant of WP and Mango. many were quite enthusiastic about Nokia (which surprised me) but all stated that the demand was for the top...

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

I think we'll see Qt used on S40 - the 'next billion' so often referred to. From what I understand Qt cannot be used on WP.

I think we'll see S40 fill in a lot of the space vacated by Symbian at...

Yes - all the opinions of the experts concur; WP Metro UI is an attractive and engaging UI and Mango will deliver enough functionality for the masses. MS do appear to have got it right. Past...

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

Are you surprised at MS's drop?

I'd imagine most of the sales of late relate to 6.5; Windows Phone 7 has been of very limited appeal because it is effectively crippled in so many areas, lacks the...

You've made my point for me - thanks ;)

Just because I'm arguing Elop's line of tactics here it doesn't mean the outcome will suit me personally - far from it, in fact:

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

Very true.

But I do think Nokia could use Meego/Harmattan as a platform for future disruptive devices.

I don't really care if Nokia build 6Million or 600Thousand, so long as I can get ONE.

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

Elop may yet prove to be the saviour of Meego/Harmattan;

As I've posted elsewhere, N9 is primarily to show Nokia can still build innovative devices and are still relevant on the run-up to their WP...

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

To be truly successful, Nokia would have to invest time and money to build a lone ecosystem for the N9 because, when nit comes to current smartphone trends, 'Apps is Where it's At'.

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

I don't think Nokia's Board agree with you, and they have access to more data and detail than we do.

Nor did they hire Elop as a patch to prop Nokia up in the short-term - they could've easily...

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

I don't think he does want to destroy Meego, but I do think he wants to keep all eyes focussed on WP, for now, at least.

Whatever you think of Elop, he's got the industry by the balls at the...

Well, that's your opinion, and I can respect that without having to agree with it.

Re: Another proof Elop is a trojan horse

- True, but I don't really regard the N9 as 'high end', do you?

The N950 is certainly not high end - you just can't buy it as it's a developer-only model.

A true high-end model would have to be...
