rsambuca, my logic is not hard to understand when you check that what I've been saying is that the mobile phone owners who have been using Symbian, Maemo, and Meego can factually see a large list of things that Lumia on WP7 cannot do. Most of the things on the list are routinely done by iOS and ICS too. The market sales numbers do not lie. As the old joke goes, they're staying away in droves.
Remember that this thread is about the future of Nokia, so regardless of how anyone here feels about Lumia or WP the fact is that the financial situation caused by the Microsoft / Elop / WP adoption has been disastrous.
If someone really wants a Windows Phone they should go ahead and buy one. If they have previously been a user of a recent Symbian, Maemo, Meego, iPhone, or Galaxy they will wonder how or why some basic features that we take for granted are missing. If someone doesn't think the items on the infamous List of 122 Things are important then that's their own opinion but it doesn't explain anything. The people who stay away from WP in droves are saying everything we need to know about why Lumia has failed - people do not want it when there are so many better products on the market.
TorontoColin, Nokia's future if/when WP is ditched will pivot on the QT toolkit. It can be ported to any UNIX-style OS on the planet, so Nokia can bolt it onto Meego/Tizen, Android, or the QNX real time OS, which is allegedly to be the underpinnings of Blackberry's next OS. Heck they could even swing a deal with Apple whereby Nokia bolts QT onto iOS for their own use and in return Apple does not have to pay Nokia about $13 per iPhone handset in royalty payments anymore. These are just some of the possibilities due to their possessing something as powerful as the QT toolkit. As for the hardware it would run on, Nokia factories sit idle while the Taiwanese company builds Lumia, and traditional parts suppliers are hungry to get going again.
