Re: Microsoft Closing Nokia Down?

The work it would take to bring MeeGo or Maemo in line with it's rivals would take at least a year, the whole time those rivals are coming out with more and more powerful devices.

Imagine, a...

Re: Microsoft Closing Nokia Down?

Of course Nokia are to blame.. they created something which had massive potential and didn't know what to do with it.

Everything was wrong, the marketing, the branding..

Re: Microsoft Closing Nokia Down?

Personally I didn't see any problem with the way it was. My comments are more based towards how it could have been made more public friendly.

At the end of the day, if lots more people had bought...

Re: Microsoft Closing Nokia Down?

It must be a few years since I posted on here, it's great to see a few still contributing.

Someone offered me an N900 in decent condition for about 50 euro, it got me wondering in what state the...

Re: N900 wifi issues

That's ok.. if i could single it down to just one ISP than it would be simple.

I've decided to sell me N900 anyway. It's definitely time to move on and away from Nokia perhaps. The 808 does...

Re: Nokia N9 discontinued today in Finland

I think you're wrong there, the N9 was a nice effort but it was never going to challenge Apple or Samsung.

The only device which could save Nokia right now would be a top of the line (specs)...

Re: Nokia N9 discontinued today in Finland

And what basis are you making this opinion? Every fact available and any analyst who has commented on Nokia/WP7 thinks that it's doomed to failure.

Who are you really? I suspect your on the wind...

Re: Nokia N9 discontinued today in Finland

Actually what Samsung is doing is the smart way to do it. The average consumer doesn't care about operating system, only if it's cool or not.

Samsung currently have 2 or 3 phones that can be...

Re: Maemo Repositories

I agree, the more repositories that are loaded, the worse the performance of the device.

There has to be a way of making it more streamlined now.

Re: You're now the CEO of Nokia. What's your smartphone strategy?

I would issue a burning platform memo about WP7.

I would then oversee the development of a new range of phones.

1) I would start work on Maemo 7, an evolution of 5.. not a re-write, this would...

Re: Nokia Shareholders - lawsuit against Nokia

If they haven't done already!

Like i said before though, Microsoft would have little interest in manufacturing, it would be Nokia's patent portfolio that they want.

Far more money in licensing...

Maemo Repositories

In what is surely the twilight of the N900's life span. Would it be a good time to redefine the extras catalogues?

Half the catalogues that came loaded with the OS no longer work, and surely all...

Re: Nokia Shareholders - lawsuit against Nokia

I fear there could be a case of serious fraud going on at Nokia right now.
Everyone knows they are sitting on cash reserves of a few billion, yet there has been recent reports that they are turning...

Re: The Next Galaxy Unpacked 2012

It's not cutting edge design but it's pleasant on the eye and no doubt a beast under the hood. Be interesting to see if claims about power consumption are true.

Re: Must read! Tomi Ahonen roasts Elop's decisions

There is no doubt that he's a trojan horse.

Ultimately, i don't think Microsoft will buy Nokia outright though. I think Elop will continue to run the company into the ground and when things are at...

Re: Unable to use Sim in device

Might be an issue with your version of firmware. I recently loaded the UK firmware to my phone and it wouldn't read the sim.

I downloaded the american firmware and it now works a treat.

Re: Nokia on the brink of failure

Why?

If each OS is supported properly it shouldn't make a difference. Calls and texts will always be charged the same way.

Re: Is the N9 a true MeeGo device?

Sure it looks a bit nicer, it just doesn't have the same meat as 5 does.
