Sane yes, sensical not always, but thanks. I've enjoyed our debates.

To me, it gives Nokia a better chance than most other cell companies that aren't making a dime and it probably shows given what has happened to HTC and others that Nokia was wise to avoid Android.

 

Samsung stalked Nokia for almost ten years, they copied their phones, they copied their scattergun tactics, until Apple came along and disrupted things then Samsung went for the jugular.

 

Samsung is profitable and hitting up every market Nokia is involved in.

 

Apple/Nokia is basically irrelevant due mainly to the failure of Windows Mobile.

Forgetting all the blah about this post being banter etc, I have read it a few times and it makes no sense.
Did you take 5 consecutive words from 11 random sentences and just post them up?

We aren't digging you out about what you said simply because we don't understand what you have said.

Try using better English more.

Any idiot can see he meant "Try using more better English".

Whoa, wait, I'm 100% certain that my father was there post-independence, and 50 years ago puts it there. He didn't live in the slums, but he wasn't a prince either.

I was last there 6 years ago. TP was supplied everywhere, except in outdoor public bathrooms.

There is this unfortunate cultural divide where close-minded people on one side think that soap and water is less sanity than dry pieces of paper and vice versa. My daily shower doesn't consist of rubbing dry paper towels over my body, but using soap and water.

I'd say the US would enjoy the bidet but they seem to be adamantly anything that sounds French. Perhaps if it was rebranded as Zero Dark Turdy: Waterboarding For Your Bunghole it would be more readily adopted.

I understand that Samsung is in every market that Nokia is in but Android runs like crap even on high end hardware. People complain about freezing and sluggishness even with 8 cores. I just sold off the Nexus 7 I was playing with for a few months ago and it had hesitations within apps even with four cores.

 

The Samsung experience on a low end phone is going to be crap because Android is crap. Worse still they often give up on Android and instead run this terrible Java based OS of theirs with a bunch of touchwiz type kludges on top. The videos of Asha running this new form of S40 and even the low end Windows phones are all smoother and better experiences.

 

Now the latest Lumia on Verizon I believe is going to sell some phones. The 928 is a revised 920 that is better in every way and is only $100 on contract. Plus unlike the giant phablet phones this is at a good size. They certainly are good enough to help Nokia get back to profitability.

I, personally, don't like the idea at all. Things are supposed to go away from there, not toward…

The cheap $99 will be more expensive than the iphone 5 at tmobile for mothers day. iphone 4 is free from the major USA carriers.

I don't know how it is in the US but here when you buy a contract without a phone it's less expensive by as much as $15. Not to mention your locked in for 2 years where as purchasing your own phone you can opt for a one year contract. Nothing is free.

Hehe, the ransom note came in the form of a Tweet.

Given the nature of this thread I thought it was obvious that the ransom was written on toilet paper.

She is liking it more and more, as she admits that the OS is more robust than the iP5, but not as "customized" as the android phone. 

 

At any rate, I can not detect a difference when she would call from a iP5 or win/Nokia 920 or my Sammy G2. I guess when they say phone, they mean a phone.

 

Customised?

 

What changing the colours of the squares on the home screen from Blue to Teal, having a light or dark background?

 

Windows mobile customisation 101, you're done.

 

Has your S2 done the battery flatten, overheat and total refusal to charge or turn on, yet?

 

Samsung is still looking into the cause of this baffling predicament randomly affecting S2 users, a lot of them if you care to search.

I'm with Apple II on this one.

About four billion people don't use toilet paper. About 70% - 75 % of the world’s population does not use toilet paper.
http://www.toiletpaperhistory.net/toilet-paper-facts/toilet-paper-fun-facts/

That is irrelevant.

Regardless of technical correctness of statement, it is not always acceptable to bluntly present it publicly. People use different terms to describe that, but I would stop at good old manners. If you meet person who has lost his legs, you will not address him as "cripple". If you meet person of African origins whose forefathers were brought to US from region nowadays known as Nigeria, you will not call him "Nigger" or "Negro". If you meet mentally challenged person, you will not call that person "retard". One might argue that those statements are technically true, but regardless of that, stating such will only make one insensitive douchebag whose parents failed to teach him/her some manners.

Beside that. Nokia feature phones are still available here in New Zealand and Australia, and I would expect that this new 501 will also be available here as well as in mostly every part of the world. Granted it will be attractive more in countries with lower average income, but among those countries are also many East European countries as well, for example, and much as I have travelled through Czech Republic, Hungary, Serbia... let me reassure you that they are all well acquainted with concept of toilet paper. However, in some of the most advanced countries there is great availability of toilet seats with sophisticated washing and drying systems that really make toilet paper obsolete.

In short, OP's generalization only makes him sound like sociopathic supremacist douche who is trying to throw feeble-minded insult in general direction of everyone who might be interested in buying such phone; one of those "Only a moron would buy THAT product", but much more mean...

Either that or pointing out that the market is for those who can't spend on luxuries but can spend on necessities.

During the Great Depression my great grandparents forewent toilet paper in favour of newspaper.

The world is the way it is.

I wonder what Steve Jobs used, a book on Zen Bhuddism I read once recommended buying the cheapest toilet paper possible, as anything more is a waste.

Speaking of toilet paper, those of us who bought some Nokia stock can certainly afford some as it is up 6% today.

I love these ads, this device. Perfect for markets where people aspire to a new edgy device, where they don't have as much money as in the west but want to identify with doing well and still having a quality product. I find Nokia's Asha line truly inspiring work. Good job!
