    Nice article. In the US Nokia is not that big and doesn't get much media attention, but globally they are the largest phone maker. Altho Samsung is really cranking out phones like mad lately, and the handest martket is generally very volatile, so who knows how long Nokia will stay on top of the heap. But anyway, good read...

    I'm not sure what the point is of the first link you posted since all it does is point you to mobile vanguard, Doesn't say anything about Nokia.

    If you look just below the "Vangaurd" banner on the top of the page there's an article there that's all about Nokia ;)

    Ah yes, I remember Nokia. They had a few phones on Sprint once. That didn't go so well.

    Yea, they pretty much bailed out of CDMA. Same with SonyEricsson. Over 80% of the world uses GSM/UMTS so it's easier to just focus on that I guess.

    They were really cheap phones, and it didnt help that Nokia didnt pay off Qualcomm for a CDMA chip and they made their own. That was a HUGE mistake

    I never cared for any of the Sprint Nokia phones. Seemed like Sprint always got the ugly ones.

    Looks like Nokia will be buying Motorola's wireless assets soon (see news forum).

    Still love Nokia despite their less-than-stellar compliment of new style phones (or at least the stuff we get in the US).

    Nokia is the best among all the phones i can say, because mostly Nokia phones resist longer.

    Nokia on GSM were stellar phones. Once again, my two best phones were the 6200 and 6230.

    Oh, absolutely. The problem is that everyone kept going and Nokia got stuck in a rut. Nokia was asleep at the wheel when it came to ongoing work on smartphones. They didn't count on the world-wide love of people with iOS and then Android phones. They really tried with Symbian but it was too little too late and not enough cheering on the OS so it could be great. As it is/was Symbian just didn't cut it and Android and iOS and even Win mobile are "where it's at." It's really too bad since Nokia has always made top-knotch hardware. They just didn't pay enough attention to what was happening with the OS.

    I agree, although there is talk on WP Central Nokia may be getting back in the game with a new Windows Phone. I personallyy would love to see that happen, since I have always been a fan of Nokia.

    Part of what I was trying to point out is that Nokia wouldn't have to go shopping for an OS (Windows Phone) outside of Espoo if they'd paid more attention to Symbian. Since they've pretty much abandoned Symbian the only choice they had was to jump on the Android or Windows Phone bandwagon.
