If this is the best Nokia can do, then they should quit

Seriously, this is ridiculous. They have getting their butts kicked for the past 3 years in the smartphone market and this is the best they can do ? Has nokia ever heard of diversification ? HTC got it, Samsung got it, but Nokia just doesn't get it. Why does nokia think they can outsell all the other OS's when windows 7 has been selling miserably by HTC and Samsung over the past year ? This has nothing to do with which OS is better at this point. Big corporations are about making money, and making money only. So what would nokia have lost if they were to sell both Android and Win7 ?

And you're wrong. Nokia isn't basically pulling a hail Mary. The ARE pulling a hail Mary. Elop has been clear about this from day one.

A forum like this is a horrible place to get genuine consumer feedback. Nokia and MS don't have to win the 0.01% extremists like yourself in order to succeed. If companies made decisions based on what was written here, we'd have nothing to buy. Of course companie...

You know, with that mentality, the only phones would be Android or iPhone. Why not get on with an OS that gives people another option? Everyone doesn't want or like Android or iPhone.
