John, thanks from everybody in this forum for the MS ads.

Yet, looking beyond marketing (it reminds me of the leaked photos of the would-be-called Lumias in February 2011), it is fun to see that the great enhancements of WP8 aka Apollo are:

1) multi core support (Wow! That's a breakthrough!)
2) HD display (Wow again! How many years after Apple and Android?)
3) Support for legacy apps (Wow wow wow! Really? That's amazing! But will they run smoothly? In emulation?)

Come on? Is this a joke or what? A closed ecosystem with few "supported" apps? Two years behind the competition?

By the way, apparently, current Lumias won't support Apollo.

And being Apollo sporting a new kernel and new technology, as usual, it will be laden with bugs (typical MS).

Also curious to know when these phones will actually ship.
It is typical MS/Nokia to announce months in advance, just to have comparisons with current phones on the market and ultimately more favourable reviews for WP. Just compare with what Apple does: announcement made, products readily available.

Yes, I know. We will have to wait for WP9 to see the REAL thing. Lol.


The local Nokia guys, Perttu and Timo and Marko have been already taken the Pension Plan B here in OULU and are now retiring. They take the usual route with a retreat to Abroad, Thailand, Australia and so on... the guys being of mediocre vocational institute grads I think Nokia's Take-Overist will be more than happy to get rid of them. I guess Nokia will be here in the Oulu no more soon.

I find it unlikely the guys will find another work soon in the same wage class as they have ridden the wave of Nokia success all way from the vocational institute to their current +5k EUR /mth salary.

Guys, its time to stop running your mouths and start collecting Statutory Welfare!


Both Meltemi and Qt seem to be cancelled as well. Not mentioned in the press release, but so many key Qt and Meltemi people are tweeting about losing or leaving their jobs that I can't see any other explanation. Plus one the key Qt persons just tweeted that the future is in Java.

Thats the two last Microsoft independent pieces killed. Surely Nokia is now lean enough for Microsoft buyout.
