The Nokia mobile devices business is now Microsoft Mobile

by Volker Weber

Nokia always had great style and incredible brand recognition everywhere, besides one country. This brand remains with the company. Microsoft gets the handset business, minus the Nokia brand. Don't mess it up, please.


Mit OneNote und den Officeprodukten für Mac und iOS hat MS immerhin ein Zeichen gesetzt. Die Nokia Handys mit Android nach Erwerb hätte ich mir früher auch nur schlecht vorstellen können.
Ein Nokia, dass sich lange nur selber reproduziert, hatte ich aber auch zur Jahrtausendwende nicht im Kopf. Die sind schon gescheitert, wurden dann aber dank MS ihrer alten Stärken bewusst.

Ach je, solange MS sich nicht in die Hardwareform einmischt, und es intern keinen Verdrängungskampf gegen Nokia gibt - man sollte gelernt haben - kann es funktionieren.

Is that a 6310i? Still remember that as one of the best phones I ever owned. Incredible build quality, sound quality, and the best battery life of any phone I've ever owned.

The best Nokia concerning buildquality, I had was the 6230. The best - till today unmatched - soundquality had the E90. I whish I could have such a good phone in "modern". I still have it as a fallback phone and am astonished by the sound, everytime I use the wheight as well by the way. in a negative way :)

Volker, I have the possibility to get a lumia 930 in june. Are the Lumias as well made Nokia Phones as Nokia used to be? Concerning receiving, sound and build?

I believe they have gotten better.
