Nokia stays catching Ls even when its on the verge of winning. Once a powerful manufacturer of great mobile phones (remember the Nokia 7710, the first touch screen phone with expandable memory slots?), Nokia is laying off thousands and seeing its stocks decline on Wall Street and in the eyes of its fan-boys, including yours truly.
Below are some examples of the former world shareholder of phones:
Win: The Finnish phone manufacturer stunned the world months ago when it revealed the Nokia 808 Pureview, a 41 megapixel camera built-into a smartphone at WWDC 2012.
L: The phone would be rocking Symbian Belle, an operating system teetering on its last cane before Nokia totally assimilates to Windows.
Win: The phone will hit European nations, the usual testing grounds, before hitting Asia and North America.
L: The price of the phone will be ridicuolous, over 1000 Euros.
Win: The Pureview will make its grand entrance in the US some time this year.
L: The Pureview will only be available on AT&T; and as a 2G phone on Tmobile. WTF?!!
Win: It will be available as a sim-free phone via Amazon, which is taking pre-orders this week.
L: It will cost ya $700.00
Win: The Carl Zeiss lens, 1080p recording, stunning image capability even in Zoom.
L: Plastic body that recalls the N97
We’re just baffled by that Tmobile 2g, thing. And Symbian Belle. Really? Come on, son! Who makes apps for that OS? Wasn’t Instagram around when Nokia invented this thing? Wow. Just wow.
Nokia Purview: Pure Nonsense on Tmobile.
