[Bloomberg] Nokia U.S. Future at Risk as AT&T Sales Seen Below Millio

Nokia’s flagship Lumia 900 that runs Microsoft Corp. (MSFT)’s Windows Phone software will start selling through AT&T Inc. (T), the second-largest U.S. wireless carrier, on April 8. Sales in the first three months of availability may reach hundreds of thousands, rather than millions like for the market-leading iPhone, according to Deutsche Bank AG and Avian Securities LLC.

“Windows Phone is the best operating system that no one is using,” Entner said.

I love my WP7, but Windows Phone has an uphill battle, no doubt.

When you're late to the party, it's hard to get others attention.

Nokia, once the world’s biggest smartphone maker, has lost more than 80 percent, or $80 billion, of its market value since the iPhone’s 2007 release

Yeah most of that happened AFTER and as a result of Microsoft planting Elop in the CEO spot and then set the platform on fire as they say, by cancelling Symbian, and Meego, and really every bit of momentum and product and platform Nokia had been engaged in, past present and future.

Should have stuck with Meego. Nokia should have purchased Palm.

Got a chance to play around with a WP7 the other day and I really liked it. After all the reviews and coverage I have seen coupled with the fact that I have been on Android for quite a while I have to say.... WP7 > iPhone > Android. (Flamesuit ON! biggrin.gif) WP7 looks like it will fit my needs more as I don't particularly care about having 5 bizillion apps or having the ability to root/modify my phone so I can make it do crazy things. Regardless its an uphill battle for WP7 and even more so for Nokia it seems. If all else fails the Titan II seems kinda sweet. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's always exciting to read about the users who've tried WP7 for the first time. All Microsoft and Nokia has to do is get users to try it for few minutes and it's pretty much a sell.

What did you think about WP before (aka from screens alone) and after trying it? Any reason why you prefer Titan II over Lumia 900?

For me it was: WP7 is boring, dull > WP7 is awesome biggrin.gif

I honestly never use my Android, except for work. I just love the WP7 interface so much more. I've gone through the 'download every app phase' with my Android and WP7, but I've realized I just like a phone that's quick and easy to use, and makes all my core apps available conveniently-- my WP7 is best for this.

Nokia is definitely taking it's chances going solely WP7. Like I said earlier, it's tough to get into the game when you show up late. The WP7 deserves to do well; it's an amazing operating system.

Yeah pretty much after 2min I was sold on WP7 lol. Before I got to try it (WP7.5 on Titan1) I was a little worried about the learning curve coming from a different platform but I liked the UI from what I had seen in the screens. Also to be honest I really liked the prospect of working with a different OS besides the 2 heavyweights...something (relatively) fresh. Instead of scrolling Left and right looking at apps I could be scrolling up and down looking at live tiles. biggrin.gif

After playing with it I was impressed at how smooth it was. The phone was very easy to navigate around and use (hell i jumped in and created a word document on the fly). Also, I thought most everyone was moving towards the duel core chips, however the 1.4Ghz (maybe 1.5 can't remember exactly) snapdragon single core seemed more than enough to make things nice and smooth. Given that the new Lumia 900 will have somewhat similar hardware with a few differences I think if peeps just gave it a try they might really like it as you suggested.

Lol I probably should have been more specific with my Titan II comment. After seeing all the stats and comparisons I think then Lumia 900 is a bit better but should Nokia not do well for whatever reason my next WP choice would be the Titan II.

+1 what Whitingnick said biggrin.gif

Boring OS will sell like crap? Who'd thunk?

WP7 and Metro need to die, so we can get on to good things.
