Nokia counts Asha phones as smartphone to inflate the numbers?? At best they are feature phones..

My teenaged son asked me what sort of phone I thought Bill Gates would have. I said probably a Nokia, becuase it runs Windows. "A Nokia!?! That's an old man's phone!" he said in much the same tone of voice as if I'd suggested Bill Gates drove a Kia.

@jackOfManyTrades Well you probably called it right then because Bill Gates is a man of relatively mature years.

You should probably say the followings to your son, "Son, you should have studied for the truth. Compared to iPhone5 which is the most popular smartphone in US, Lumia 920 has higher ppi (332 vs 326), NFC built-in vs none, much more environmental friendly than not environmental friendly because Apple does not support the mandate EN40-2009 which is accepted by all smartphone (for most feature phones too) OEMs, bigger screen size than the pity 4" hence less strain to your pretty eyes, Nokia was insightful to acquire Navteq (one of the two world's largest map companies) in CY2007 and arguably possess the most complete map database vs Apple's convoluted Apple Maps. Besides, son, Nokia's CEOs never told you how you should hold the smartphone with the intention to deceive you of a fault of the antenna design. So, Nokia's products should be trusted, if not more, than Apple's, at the very least!"

Today's generation drink wine instead of scotch or brandy. If it lasts longer than 5 years, it would be seen as old. Nokia, a success brand of the decades, becomes a double edged sword that cut through them. The fact is there will always be old brand. Apple will become an old man brand 10 years later if not 5. The rebranding is a challenge. I do hope Nokia can get through it.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
