    The last time I found Nokia relevant was in 2001 when I had a little tiny cellphone with a pop out keyboard that was the "cool" phone.

    Then I moved on in to a Windows Mobile smartphone in 2002, and haven't given them a single thought since.

    And yet all your arguments, until you start talking about Apple, are benefits to the consumer and possibly developers, not the manufacturer. The thing to remember is that Android itself is not a money product. Sure, new and exciting right now, the name alone is selling a lot of phones. That won't last forever. Unless the manufactures find a way to come up with a way to make their phones unique and desirable they are going to be competing entirely on the basis of price vs hardware features.

    At that point there market will start looking a lot like the netbook market. A constant drive to the cheapest possible piece of plastic with the longest list of features. Not necessarily a bad thing for the consumers; however manufactures make very little per unit on the sales.

    Hold in mind I'm not completely sure I agree with Nokia. We are a long way from seeing what the market is gong to do, and the mobile market is volatile and has a very short product life expectancy.

    We do have to remember, in this market there really are no long term decisions. How fast is has each "generation" of networks come out? "Not to mention OS's and smartphones.

    Apple can say what it thinks, but windows mobile and palm handsets drove the touchscreen craze in phones to begin with.

    Motorola can make a series of short term decisions and wind up being king anyway, because each big "thing" in cellular tech has been short term anyway.

    when I move to europe i'll get a nokia (meaning never)... without the android market or the app store a smart phone isn't so smart..... blackberrys nokias or whatever phones are out there are useless

    the hd2 was a 10x better phone then any nokia but running windows mobile is lame

    I had an e72 and was very impressed. It was fast, stable, had a great camera, never crashed but Symbian sucks swamp water through a small straw! It has some good features but menus are confusing and recursive, like the old New England saying "you can't get there from here, you have to go there first."

    Yeah as someone said early on in this thread, they're in denial! Good luck Nokia!

    Probably why Nokia's market share continues to diminish as time goes by: poor knowledge of their market. And as for peeing in their pants to stay warm, who should know better than the Finns? dancedroid

    I'm surprised they are even news worthy. I guess the only way for them to get into the news is say something that crazy.
