Nice Choice of Wordz...

"Nokia, in particular, is struggling to compete against smartphones made by firms such as Apple, Huawei, and Samsung."

Who determined that Nokia is struggling? A statement like this should deserves further context. How are they struggling? Stock price? Unit sales? Lifting weights? If this was a phonescoop employee typing this out, he/she should just label the article an attack ad.

I'd say that the shareholder's concern about Nokia's future should be a sign.

Yeah, the statement is supported by facts, and those facts aren't exactly news or secrets so a citation in the article is not completely necessary.

actually Nokia has turned around a lot, there line of Lumias has scored WP8 third place in most popular mobile OS right behind android in secind place and that gap closes everyday,

turning a sinking ship around is a long process, but there phones are built even on the cheaper end with much higher quilty body and internal parts then most high end androids plus the growing popularity of WP8 they dont have much to worry about

My thoughts exactly. I remember when Motorola was on the verge of collapse and now look at them. Yes, Google swooped in and infused money back into the mobile arm of Moto but they are a strong brand once again.

Seriously thats how you show they're on the rebound?? 3rd place, well hate to tell you as much as I love Blackberry, there are only 3 major OS's right now so when they move into 2nd at all then we can talk about the rebound. I'm sorry they are 3rd and not close to getting in 2nd

They actually ARE gradually turning around.....the Lumia 920 was voted the smartphone of the year and is widely regarded by tech experts as one of the best smartphones ever made....now things aren't going great for them I admit, but they now have very positive 'buzz' which they haven't had in years....people are talking about Nokia and the Lumia lineup....the biggest problem facing Windows Phone is the same as the biggest problem facing Blackberry 10: a lack of apps....it's not just the total number of apps, but basically none of the 'big apps' are available for either platform....and Microsoft finally got Google to agree to start making official apps, so that is an excellent start
