    The thing that get me is the phones aren't all that great. They break incredibly easily and the threads on faults from new just screams bad Q&A measures. Im actually looking forward to seeing phones released with nokia design influences and tech mixed with the same quality that you get from MS. I mean the surface RT and Pro may not be everyones favourite tablets but those things can take a beating.

    Yes I have a similar feeling about the Lumia range. Though the 920 is a brick. I've been trying to sort out what is hardware fault and what is software and firmware. Bit of a mess but they devices were rushed.

    I think MS will add quality but I think most people like the look, feel of Lumia and 'remember' Nokia as a good handset maker.

    You can attach hate to a company quite easily - I hate Sony for example and Apple

    But if you hate something the other extreme must be true so love for a company is perfectly acceptable.

    Its not a proper emotion though as I don't believe you can, or should have emotional attachments to inanimate objects

    Outpouring of emotions over something inanimate is wrong - its like writing a suicide note because your blow up doll got a puncture.

    Do you have a link stating that? I thought they had it for the next 10 years. I expect it to go prior to that but I don't see a reason why they wouldn't use it for a bit first.
    MS has only 'purchased' the brands Lumia and Asha. The Nokia name remains with the current company which will focus on mapping and other stuff. We will still have Lumias and Ashas. The phone and the packaging will say Microsoft.

    I will miss it. I am actually fast forwarding my purchase for the next phone to early next year, just so that i can be a Nokia customer for two more years.

    Hmm - trolling is basically writing a comment in order to illicit a negative reaction from other users.

    Nope, the Nokia name is part of that package but I did find an article if you look back one or two pages on here that explains they're going to drop it rather quickly, along with Lumia.

    Troll comment example:

    Sony suck. Their entire line of products is poorly made and guaranteed to break one week out of warranty - the CEO's are all smug, sliver spoon fed college boys with no clue of how to create anything new or inventive and are willing to brainwash the consumers into thinking they are great while removing all your rights as a consumer as you use their products.

    This sort of comment - while my true feeling on Sony would definitely illicit a negative response from a Sony fan like BP.
