You left out the iPod - why do I need an iPod? I've got a perfectly good 8-track in my car and another in my living room.
Just for shits and giggles lets pretend the number is right... that would mean Apple has some different marketing plans to move that kind of volume... Bundling? Price drop? How could Apple shake up the phone market in such a way to do that???
No one has any idea what these tens of thousands of ex-Nokia employees were doing. But if they were engineers working on future design enhancements, then MS just ceded the future to Apple and certain of the Android manufacturers. A ton of staff is needed if you want to push performance in Batteries, Integrated Antenna design, new features, Touch ID, and Materials Design...even if you only want to make a couple phone models.

In recent weeks former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has departed Microsoft, alongside the company's head of phones Jo Harlow. Nadella warned of "tough choices in areas where...
Quit ignoring the low memory warnings...
It's probably an old analog phone, or requires a type of superseded digital connection.
 I agree. Lets all turn our hymnals to YouTube and sing along as George Carlin leads us in a rousing list of words you can't say on TV. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyBH5oNQOS0
