As we knew prior to todays announcement Nokia had something going on and today we all found out what it was,there was plenty of guesses and some got it right and some got it wrong,it was all about a Black box,but what was inside the box was the thing that had everyone curious until today.
Having let the dust settle although i had a good inkling my thoughts of what the media and public would say was like this is going to be interesting,very interesting and looking over many comments and forums and social media this has certainly caused a stir,even for some of the well know people in the industry and some suprising comments from not so suprising people and vice versa.
Another thing has been said as regards to a tablet, there’s enough, it’s an ipad with Android sure if it had similar aesthetic looks to something else it would be called whatever then too, it’s a tablet folks get over it blame who you like, the price is good, there is plenty of tablets out there yes, more rubbish ones than good ones this is not rubbish.
It seems to me some people have been hurt in a funny kind of way way,dissing the device straight away we do not need to go into who said what or point the finger anywhere most of us in the industry have probably seen or examined the said comments,one word that keeps arising is FOXCONN but what people miss and forget to mention there is plenty of other devices made by them and its ok for them devices to embrace the planet but not for Nokia well fo those to comment without balance they are the hurt ones,showing their true nature and ignoring all that has went on in the past and how MS has conducted business with Nokia and it staff over the last few months,The age old argument still continues,Nokia brought WP to where it is,Nokia made WP popular and sales rise,what has MS done since the takeover,now why dont you all settle down and think about this before slating a new prodcut bearing the Nokia LOGO,its a new direction for Nokia no different than some companies will make or have had to make in the last couple of years so move along now and just let technology take its cycle..Business is business though tough times for all,good and bad… There is wounds that will never heal and some will..
Lets just leave these two images here for now and you decide for yourself,these are 2 tweets i sen today and thats it..
And no other device is made or assembled by Foxconn,hmmmm ohhh what have i missed..
Quite a valid point there John..
Before we look a the N1 just to clarify,Yes i use Windows Phone and Yes i also use Android,with here maps and Zlauncher.. take from that what you like..
So now also what we see today is saying this is the new ipad running Android,The iPad is nice no doubt about it saying its copied is a bit strecthed but people are entitled to their opinion and in the tech sector its what you are going to get ,rough with smooth and so on..
