@ Anne,

I quite agree with you, what the users need is not just a phone but device to solve lots of their computing, media and communicating. Nokia need to the same.

@Anne, i certainly agree with you on that, the rate at which changes are taking place  everyday is so alarming that Nokia will have to see a bit into the future to really come back relevant.

For Nokia to be relevant in today's smartphone technology, with Microsoft they need to create more than the basic features, they need strong innovation.

I read today that Nokia is ready to discount the Lumia because response to the product has been mixed. It seems to me it is way too early to do that. So much of Nokia's problems seem to be self-inflicted--I wonder if this is another one?

Nokia's best option is to partner with Microsoft while they still have substantial cash. Work with Microsoft to not only implement Windows OS, but to innovate the OS. Come up with some things that will truly compete with Apple and Android. This could be very beneficial to both companies.

Samsung may not see that as a bad idea at all.

@Johnny:

The question is whether the struggling Nokia is ready (want) to be sold or not. And if so what big company would be willing to buy it? Do you see any one in your crystall ball? I would say Microsoft might be interested, but there have been much disappointment in their alliance so-far.

elctrnx_lyf, It probably will get a bit more difficult for Nokia before it starts to get better. This is the pattern when a market leader loses steam. Two reports today point to a way forward for Nokia. In the first report the company indicated it will have to make more cost cutting (See: Nokia posts $1.2 billion loss as sales plummet) and the second could hold some promising good news for the company. The report speculates about Verizon supporting Windows operating system for wireless handsets. Verizon's support could significantly give Nokia the lift it needs to raise its profile in North America. (See: Will Verizon throw its weight behind Windows Phone?).

@elctrnx_lyf:

I agree, Nokia is struggling to make a worthwhile impact in the smartphone market. With its focus on windows mobile platform it is losing the market very quickly to the android based phones. 

Keeping this in mind I am not sure if the windows 8 tablets will prove to be a promising investment.
