Nokia - No More Symbian Phones After 2012

eshefer Re:The end of Nokia (234 comments)

have you ever tried jumping on a moving train?

unless they have teams working on android compatability NOW, they'll be dead.

  it will take them more then a year to ship a Winmo7 based product. how long do you think it will take them to ship an android product? where do you think HTC, Motorola and the rest of the gang will be by the time they ship and android version. (and we're talking about AT LEAST two years from now. how much cash will they have by then?

Nokia - No More Symbian Phones After 2012

eshefer Re:The end of Nokia (234 comments)


from a buisness POV this makes even less sense.

if winmo7 fails - they're dead.
If the Winmo7 strategy works, everyone will go tho winmo7 and gut them. then they'll be dead.

Nokia's ex-CEO said something about wsitching to android is like peeing yourself in winter time for warmth. all I see when I look at Nokia is a giant puddle, and the urin wasn't even warm to begin with.
