Nokia Lumia smartphone is being aggressively marketed in India where there is a large user base of Nokia Phones and Nokia enjoys the reputation of giving reliable phones. Looks like with Lumia introduction Nokia is back in reckoning in the smartphones market.

I would not even consider buying a Windows phone. What's the value proposition really: legacy software, great user experience, a unique app ecosystem, low cost? none of the above!

Thanks, this is interesting. Remember that Android runs via Java on top of Linux. A Linux desktop user would probably not be too surprised....

I remember reading similar predictions last year. I believe they predicted 5% of market share in 2011. Clearly that didn't happen, and I find it very hard to believe that they're going to jump to 9% in 2012. No matter how good WP7 is, we're talking about a 450% increase in market share. Nokia isn't doing anything special enough to make this realistic.

I bought an N8 last year too - great phone. Few improvements and much regression in the Lumia's - even the top of the range 900. Who is going to pay more for a lesser phone?

Last year bought N8 (Symbian... :-() solely for its camera; no regrets whatsoever. Happy.

Someone who have previously owned windows os phone will never try windows again as it had disappointed the customers a lot in-term of its updates, still if windows mobile os is not backward compatible customers will be totally dissatisfied. Also windows mobile os will have to follow the huge app market which is already grown at lot in case of other OS's.

Nokia may not be that unlikely to rise in the smartphone market, IF it can deliver an attractive phone. At least in Europe, Nokia has a very strong reputation when it comes to selling reliable phones that keep on working many years without a glitch.

I'd have to disagree, Dylan. I would actually prefer a windows phone. I have tested the HTC Radar 4G (also Windows) and I loved it. It was a surprisingly pleasant experience. I found it to be much sleeker and more sophisticated to any Android phone I've used to date. Having said that, Nokia has a branding issue in the US and will need to work mighty hard to win people over.
