Nokia isn't nearly as fast on tech as some of the other big players like Samsung, HTC, Apple, and Motorola. I love my Nokia phone and I expect there will be fans who stick with them through the transition to Windows phone software, but I don't see what they can possibly do to distinguish themselves positively from the aforementioned phone companies. Unless they have a price point to die for, I think they're a sinking ship.

I'm betting on both Nokia and Microsoft to have a very good year. The new Lumia phone has gotten rave reviews from the people who bought them, and the new Windows operating system has taken a page from Apple and made it a seamless transition from your smartphone to your tablet or laptop. It may take awhile to catch on, but as Toyota proved 2 decades ago, the key to success is to build something people like at an affordable price, then wait for the public to notice.

Andao, I agree with you. Time to bail if you are on this ship.
