Maybe a little bit of marketing could help Nokia.

Oh, except their last two or three attempts at marketing focused on a sport most Americans tend to ignore, soccer.

And the software is crap anyway. I personally haven't heard a single person comment "oh hey, I want a Nokia phone because it's easy to use or does a lot of stuff, or its unique and intuitive".

Yes, software must be crap considering they overhauled the whole OS, of which 99% of people that seem to comment on Nokia have NEVER tried.

True, and also true about 70% of s60v3 owners didn't either. I happen to have used it for several years. I think in its day and age it was great. Now its time for a change. I don't think ^3 underneath is much improved, some nice touches with the touch screen, made it a bit more useable. But it pales compared to Android and iOS. If Nokia wants me back, they need to put out some Meego devices.

Maybe not, but I have heard many people say 'I want a Nokia phone because they have great internal antennae, get great reception and rarely drop calls'

I no longer work in the wireless industry but when I did I always used to recommend Nokia's to customers who complained about dropped calls. I never once had one come back and say I made a recommendation, but I did have many come back and thank me for fixing their dropped calls problem.

yeah but in the business world, it's not about what you used to do...it's about what you do now.

and at least for the north american market, they're not doing anything.

granted they're still a large company and they're not going anywhere, but for those of us in NA, nokia is not a brand to put a lot of stock in.

What should they be doing for those of us in NA?

Maybe you want them to take a page from the Samsung playbook... make a poor quality phone and then put it in 35 different shells, sell the carriers on the lower price point and the price-conscious/feature-hungry consumers will overlook the poor quality.

Note to Samsung: "you can color that turd any color you want, it's still a turd!"
