Nokia paid $150 million for Qt in January 2008. Four years and seven months later, they sold it for $4.9 million. In-freakin-credible.
Reminder: Samsung Galaxy Note II = two weeks from today. Nokia World = three weeks from today. Apple iPhone 5 = four weeks from today.
For $350 + $200 ($550) you can get a Galaxy Nexus and a Nexus 7. That's less than the price of an iPhone 4S.
The thing that no one has said yet: For every Windows Phone Nokia sells, they also sell 5 Symbian phones. Let that sink in for a moment.
The biggest competitor to the $99 Nokia Lumia 900 on AT&T is the $99 Apple iPhone 4 on AT&T. You'd have to be insane to go with the Lumia.
Nokia got $250 million (180 milion EUR) from MSFT in Q4 as a "platform support payment". In other words, MSFT is paying NOK to use WP!
why are people amazed that samsung made a 132 page pdf document analyzing what makes the iphone special? it's called competitive analysis.
For the price of a Surface Pro ($899), you could buy a Nexus 4 ($349), Nexus 7 ($299), and a Chromebook ($249). Do the math.
Elop: "We have a very important relationship and dependency to Microsoft." | painful to hear that $NOK
So just a recap: Galaxy Note II on Aug 29, Nokia WP8 device(s?) Sep 3/4/5, iPhone 5 Sep 12. If you're planning on buying a phone soon, wait.
aren't all these apple fanbois saying an iPad mini would be awesome the same apple fanbois who once quoted Jobs saying 7 inch tablets stink?
Microsoft isn't letting HTC build Windows RT tablets because they don't have enough experience, yet Nokia can build a tablet because ... ?
This is the best photo of a Google Nexus Q I've ever seen. http://cdn2.sbnation.com/entry_photo_images/8216777/nexus-q-doorstop_1020_large.jpg …
Nokia sold more Symbian handsets in Q2 than LG sold smartphones during the same quarter. Incredible.
Nokia burned through 14% of their cash in a single quarter. That's 675 million Euros. POOF! $NOK
