No one wants these turd window phones... I work at a phone store that does around 100 activations per month. In the last three months we have sold two windows phones to people who "had to have them" one was returned. Garbage.

It sure isn't helping that the 920 only on AT&T. It's like they hate money.

They're being idiots with that exclusive carrier nonsense. They should be trying to get the device available to as many consumers as possible. Galaxy S3 is available on all 4 carriers. Best selling Samsung phone ever. High end Lumia was AT&T only, low end one was T-Mobile only. Perfect recipe for failure.

nokia CEO must be fired. they started making crap phones with crap strategies. my nokia n8 symbian battery life has become very LOW after one year and a half, the phone is slow as hell, disconnects often and fails to make a call within another 10-15 sec; horrendous.

Nokia should be like Samsung in a way. They are trying to hug the whole smartphone industry. They make Windows phones, Android phones, and just because Apple doesn't let them or else they would be making the best iOS phones.

They make phones exclusive because the carrier pays for marketing expenses.

Lumia sales lagged, with just 2.9 being sold during the quarter
Was the 0.9 replacement parts or are they just so crummy that each device sold is only considered 1/10 of a phone?

Seriously tho, it is hardly surprising to see these crummy phones failing, especially when they openly admit that they won't be getting updates to WinMo8. Nokia saw everyone betting on Android and decided to bet heavily on the long shot...and it blew up in their faces. Unfortunately for their stockholders, they were blinded by the explosion so they keep doing the same thing.

People are waiting for Nokia Lumia 920 that's why nobody is buying old Numias.
