I had a Nokia up until 2006, then went to blackberry, then smart phones. Wonder why Nokia didn't keep up with the times?

Yeah, probably one of the biggest strategic errors in the whole technology industry. They’re sceptical about smartphones. I had some Nokia cell phones, then I started to use Palm Treo, my first smartphone.
Steph
Octopus, my first smartphone was a Windows phone. Shhh, don't tell anyone

Rumors say, they had problems. Very big company, internal competition among selfish managers. Then Microsoft came, sent Stephen Elop in disguise to fuck up things even more. MS bought up the dieing half of Nokia then threw it in the trash. All to make MS competitive against Google and Apple, yet they failed, WP is garbage. Nokia had very good concept coming up before the MS raid, an OS called Maemo, later Meego. But it is also practically dead now. Sad story.

Steph, yeah, the engineers worked well most of the time, they had quality products. That's why it was a loved brand.

Steph, a video on that topic: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NJS1C-j7TX4 the third and last episode of a series about Nokia. I suggest the cold fusion channel generally. Good one.

They got sloppy. I think they were approached by android development team but they turned them down. They lost out because they got cocky. All empires collapse eventually. Only way to stay ahead is take risks. Which they never did which is why they lost out

Nokia is starting to make smartphones again, wich is great. The lumia’s were a flop, a flop that was so devastating it affected my home county’s economics.

Not really. They own the name, and they use that, but from development to marketing everything is outsourced.
