    What an ***hole!

    http://pocketnow.com/2012/12/18/biggest-losers-2012

    "Sadly the cake on my list is taken by Nokia. Surely they’re a smartphone maker and did their job right with great hardware across the line, but Windows Phone still hasn’t proven to be their ticket to success, and their PureView fake and embarrassing marketing Ad really showed how desperate they are in showing the world something they still can’t do."

    I'm sitting here with my L920 in my hands, and I think it rocks. What's ironic is that pocketnow themselves, did an article on how apples getting away with false advertising all the time.

    You Think Nokia Uses Deceptive Advertising? Have You Heard of Apple? | Pocketnow

    "The interesting thing is that the most profitable tech company in the world lies to us all the time in their commercials and airs them constantly on public television. Apple is often being busted for false advertising, but they never really do anything about it. Remember when Apple claimed their screen supported “millions of colors” when it really only had a few hundred thousand? How about the lawsuits about the false advertising Apple uses in its Siri commercials?"

    It's becoming harder and harder to take those tech writers serious. WTF!?

    He is entitled to his own opinion. If that actually is his true opinion. Maybe he's just like that stock guy Kramer. Most people do the exact opposite of what he says cause he is known for pumping bad stocks and trashing good ones for whoever is paying his salary.

    True. He was bashing on RT, before even having it in his hands. He probably has some grudge against MSFT. Whatever... in any case, he comes out, looking very unproffesional.

    This Jaime Rivera guy isn't the only person to think Nokia is the biggest loser of 2012, he's just an easy target because he shared his thoughts on the internet and likes to argue back with people.

    Windows Phone still hasnt proven to be their ticket to success

    Well, it hasn't. I don't see droves of Lumia 920's and HTC 8X's in my office. Until I got rid of my 920 I was the only person in the building of 400+ that had a Windows Phone. There are a lot of feature phones and old flip phones in use, but also a lot of Android phones and iPhones. (not to mention iPads and Kindles) When one of your major features fails to deliver - ahem, daylight photos - people are going to take notice. Photos taken at night and in low light conditions rocked. They could be better, yes, but Nokia took smartphone cameras to places they normally wouldn't have gone to. Good for them. They could have done that with their own hardware/software outside of Windows Phone though. And potentially, they could have casted a wider net in the process.

    and their PureView fake and embarrassing marketing Ad really showed how desperate they are in showing the world something they still cant do

    The original demonstration units had the best photo taking ability. The review units that got pushed out caused people to go "what the heck" and question Nokia's logic in releasing the phones in that condition. To say they were rushed is an understatement. Nokia had to get the Lumia 920 out before the holidays, before other flagships were released and to avoid getting drowned out by rumors of a Galaxy S 4. Nokia may have been desperate, but production issues and pressure from Microsoft and investors to deliver a finished project probably led to what we have all experienced with our devices. Nokia produces quality handsets. What happened with their launch, in my opinion, is a fluke.

    In 2013 it will be up to Microsoft to innovate the OS and support it. They have great devices in their stable. They need to focus on correcting issues with the OS, demonstrating value in their core offerings and showing how the devices we are buying now won't suddenly become obsolete in 6 months as they tend to with Android. Nokia put their eggs into the Windows Phone basket. I personally wouldn't have minded seeing a WebOS device developed by Nokia featuring their high-end cameras.

    No, fixed it for you.

    OMG, I just did the "fixed that for you" thing! I must be an ***hole too! Woe is me!

    I'd like to add that "let me google that for you" qualifies as well, while we're talking about it. :D

    It hasn't been proven wrong either has it? You have some sort of hotline to Elop, and got the sales figures? Point is, it's to early to tell.

    Besides, there's absolutely NOTHING wrong with my L920. No Rattles, no battery drain, no dust and Whatever...

    I'm NOT a fanboy. But it's seriously annoying with all the Nokia/MSFT bashing going around. I honestly feel like I'm sitting with a quality device here.

    Dude, haven't you realized by now that if you're actually happy with your WP8 device, and you tell people about it, you MUST be a fanboy and an apologist? :D

    Wait, there is nothing wrong with your 920? Did I ask? Why do you feel the need to defend your device based on the one snippet you quoted?

    Nokia makes quality devices - even I said in my post I think the launch batch that had issues was just a fluke and likely due to the rush placed on them by Microsoft and investors to get something out the door before the holidays. Glad you enjoy your Lumia - never said there was a problem with anyone enjoying anything.

    It's not about marketshare its about beating your competition at every release cycle.

    So far Nokia is doing a great job if you look at ATT sales their top 4 correct? 1. Apple, 2 GS3, 3 GNOTE2, Lumia 920.

    That's pretty damn good considering you have Sony, HTC and other OEM's battling for that spot.

    So the way I look at it is not Marketshare because that takes time its about beating your competition every cycle and hopefully with good word of mouth Nokia should be able to stump GS3, Gnote2 and you can already slowly see that happening.

    Biggest loser of 2012? Nokia WP8 phones have only been out for a month, and by most accounts seems to be selling quite well.
