  1. Some of Nokia's supporters don't like that the Finnish company is switching to Windows Phone as its primary smartphone platform. A small number of them have gone as far as launching a Nokia Plan B Facebook page with the following explanation of their stance, titled "An open letter to Nokia shareholders and institutional investors":

  2. There's the way NOKIA should go.
  3. Get out Mr. Elop!
  4. After words of Nokia CEO: "our platform is burning" ... Sadly... The damage is done :(

    Am I too easily swayed or does plan B sounds like a potentially better option?

    Either option is feasible really, plan b keeps your identity and plan A makes you MS *****.

    I think the "Nine" underestimate the resources Apple, Google and Microsoft have and overestimate MeeGo based on the following comment "MeeGo smartphones and tablet devices will offer overwhelmingly superior experiences and applications than iOS and Android based competitor products."

    Though i do like the idea or creating 1 or 2 Win7 Nokia phones for North America and testing the waters there but not the idea of keeping Symbian around for another 5 years minimum

    Why does everyone hate WP7? I have yet to get any answer to that question. It is a very good OS and looks VERY professional. Apple and android look like toys to me.
  11. People dont like WP7 because they already have Android or Iphone, Most people im sure haven't seen or even tried WP7, this just gives them something to cry about,

    I can see what you mean yRaz, I think Wp7 has much better interface then the droid, I guess much of the stinking remarks come from not having seen it, and because it isnt yet a complete solution, incidentally they forget that android wasn't what it is today in the early days.

    I have used/tried iOS, Android, and WP7. For now I think iOS is the best out of these. Google's lax controls over Android means end user end up getting lots of crapware which can be bothersome for 'power users' and also cause stability issues (at least in my case).
  13. Maybe if Microsoft would of released their phone on Verizon instead of going carrier exclusive it would be more popular. Sorry but by the time it does most everyone will be droid addicted. My company is at the point where we are going to upgrade and we currently have blackberries....but if WP7 was available I'm sure our company would move that way...but by the time it does come to Verizon it will be to late..Why Microsoft why? I thought you were smart...lol

    although MS has chosen ATT as the main carrier, they plan on releasing it on all US carriers.

    I do believe this is the way, low profits at the begining but a mid-term success.
