Windows Phone is slow to catch up - Microsoft’s mobile platforms (including the dated Windows Mobile) have only been declining in the last couple of months and are struggling to get traction. Nokia, for once, has sold a not-too-impressive just over 1 million WP devices in the first three months of availability.At the same time, Nokia publicly and a bit prematurely deemed its Symbian “a burning platform” back in February 2011. No wonder sales of Symbian smartphones declined quicker than the company expected. This is why the Finns now expect to sell "fewer Symbian devices than previously … [Read more...] about Nokia SEC filing reveals all the risks ahead

The gap in knowledge to the average user is a pretty big technical knowledge point because it speaks to the overall user experience that you would have.
