Nokia CEO Stephen Elop today said at the Nokia World event in London that the company will be making a significant announcement regarding its plans for the North American market at some point in early 2012. Elop said that Nokia is working with North American network operators to create Windows Phone devices that include LTE 4G and CDMA 3G. He wasn’t specific on further details about the carrier partners in particular.
Nokia is among my favorite cell phone manufactures of all time. I am so sad and disappointed to see them go with Windows Phone 7. I absolutely loathe the Metro UI. It is by far the ugliest UI on a smartphone I have ever seen.
I would have liked to have seen Nokia go with webOS. I really think they could have saved it. HP didn't give a damn. All they wanted was the patents not realizing it's full potential. I really think a Nokia webOS based device would have kicked ass!
Big mistake for them to go with Windows garbage. They're the new Palm and will wind up in the dust bin next to the Treo phones. WebOS could've saved Nokia, but I think they're toast now. Maybe they can merge with RIM...
