Re: Nokia N900 Enterprise Version

I think those that I mentioned are something I don't recall seen before. Or are they found in repos?

Interesting find!
Any special apps installed that you could extract?

Nokia N900 Enterprise Version

Just bought another N900 with 15 Eur. From someone who had worked for Nokia. Who had got a bag full of N900s when their job ended. N900s were of no use anymore at that time. I think they said this...

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

Wasn't the most important factor Symbian being Nokias cashcow? That is what gave management justification to neglect other inhouse developments until all trains to successfully shift away from...

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

You are implying no ecosystem = no future. But if that'd be true, how comes android made it? And iOS? They didnt happen to have an ecosystem when they started as well. Nokia had Ovi Store, at the...

THIS!!!

I am surprised how few people see this. Android may have its own share of design faults, but none nearly as idiotic as this. You can still run an Android 2 application on Android 9. The...

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

You are right.
This is what not I wanted to express. Sorry for my analogy.

I just had in mind the blocking of apps due to store restrictions and qt versions and non-existence of paid apps and ...

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

Another thing I would like to understand is why wasn't the n9 sold in the US. At the time I thought it was far better than what Apple had to offer. It still has a better user interface than any...

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

Not likley. Symbian was too old and maemo/meeego/peego and feego didenít share an ecosystem. Every phone on itís own.

They might survived another year or so but the stock value would be just as...

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

IMHO if Elop had not been there the downfall would be slower and they might had a chance/time to change and keep the market.
There has been plans for more flagships with MAEMO to come out, but Elop...

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

Yes, Peter. That's exactly what juiceme said. In just two words ;)

And I totally agree with tortoise. Developing in Symbian was a royal PITA.

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

Im sorry but as a SFOS developer, I find this offensive to say the least.
Saying that Symbian is easier than SFOS is blasphemy right there! There's no way 2 stacks are easier than one!

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

I need to detail a bit more my view.
I would not say Symbian caused the downfall (I really did like to use S60 devices and modding) but the keep holding on it.
At its time it was a nice thing (hard...

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

Still has almost 80000 employees so not totally nonexistent?
And have you checked the stock market, NOK is still traded so that'd prove it exists I think :D

the article says nokia is much smaller than in 2008, but i would say it doesn't even exist. what the author may think about is the nokia branded devices from hmd global, but those have nothing to do...

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

Dave, Symbian was more than an OS to Nokia. It was their culture. Their way of life. Their baby. Their... precioussss. And, as juiceme correctly points out, eventually their undoing.

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

Not really. An OS can never be blaimed. If Nokia had android at that time they would still most likely fail.

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

To me itís mainly due to vision. You need to be able to change and nokia didnít want to change. From top management to dev teams.

Re: New book on Nokia's post0iPhone implosion

I doubt it. I think it was primarily internal politics, and secondarily not prioritizing software sufficiently. Wildly guessing, with no real information at all, I'd guess a 70% / 30% mix.

I'll bite. What do you think caused Nokia's downfall?
