Forums - Gaming Discussion - Windows phone hasn't been good to Nokia, Yoy marketshare

 

 

I hope that MSFT is compensating Nokia enough to "pay" for the -25% market share that they lost in a year's time, what do y'all say bout that?

Either way I think Nokia is happy. To be honest they are unable to compete with samsung anymore when it comes to android OS so Windows is giving them a different market to cater to. I think overall this partnership has benefited both Microsoft and Nokia and share prices of both companies are reflecting that.



I mostly play RTS and Moba style games now adays as well as ALOT of benchmarking. I do play other games however such as the witcher 3 and Crysis 3, and recently Ashes of the Singularity. I love gaming on the cutting edge and refuse to accept any compromises. Proud member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race. Long Live SHIO!!!! 

The general idea of Nokia being "happy" with this arrangement seems doubtful, as they are going to have to basicallly tighten their belts and downsize if this trend continues, and you should have realized that already.



You are posting Nokia's total YOY Q1 phone sales and blaming it the lack of all phone sales on Windows Phone...which is a smartphone.

The business model just cant compete with android and apple, sorry bub.

MSFT charges way too much for Nokia's so-called privelage of using the OS, and that's not helping Nokia.

What a load of nonsense.

And you know it. The lumia range is doing well and will continue to increase their sales in smartphones.

Last year you didn't want to talk about mobile phones, just smartphones and now that's flipped. You are looking desperate.

What's up... All the gloomy google news upsetting you?

What do you think of that bogus action they brought that was thrown out,

what do you think about Samsung planning to ditch android.

What do you think about all those android mobile phone vendors paying Microsoft licensing fees.

Crazy that ms makes more money from android than they do from windows phones isn't it.

 

ALL you ever do is post negative Nokia or Ms pieces.  It's becoming ridiculous...  You then add an opinion at he end basically saying ms/Nokia will be gone soon. It's frankly pretty embarrassing and miles off.  Basically it's....

If samsung starts using their own OS then google can just reign them in by supporting the other smartphone manufacturers with their marketing or whatever. Google is doing them a big favor IMHO by giving them a winning platform that is free, as opposed to MSFT demanding that they fork over $$$$ for its use.

Lol.  You never stop.

yeah I love how google are giving android to vendors for free and then those vendors are paying Ms for using it. It's hilarious.

It's a especially boneheaded because if he wanted to make Nokia look bad, comparing Nokia's YoY smartphone sales (Symbian + Lumia) actually looks worse:

But I guess that also shows a growing share of Windows phones being shipped, so it could be construed as favourable to Microsoft. Rats, foiled again!
