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 companies make bad stupid decisions, but until Nokia shutters its doors, it's difficult to come to that conclusion.
I can't predict the future, but I do know what they have going for them.
-Strong mechanical design(and yes better and Apple)
-One of the best RF companies out there(there was a recent WSJ piece that chronicled how some high power executives in New York, London, etc carried around el cheapo S40 phones because they had better call quality)
-Immense carrier interest. The majors may not be publicly admitting this, but privately, they HATE the Android iOS duopoly.
-MS Office/Enterprise support. If you run a corporate IT department, you'll know that this is a killer feature in terms of enterprise sales.
-Global brand recognition. There's still parts of the world where people will buy a Nokia because it's a Nokia. The same reason people buy Hondas and Toyotas.
You're entitled to your own opinions, but mayhaps you should stick to having opionions based on what you know and not just your first gut reaction.
