Nokia: Youths are fed up with iPhone, baffled by Android

Pocket-Lint: Nokia has claimed that the youth of today are fed up with the iPhone and baffled by Android.

In an exclusive interview with Pocket-lint, Niels Munksgaard, director of Portfolio, Product Marketing & Sales at Nokia Entertainment Global explained all:

“What we see is that youth are pretty much fed up with iPhones. Everyone has the iPhone," he said. "Also, many are not happy with the complexity of Android and the lack of security. So we do increasingly see that the youth that wants to be on the cutting edge and try something new are turning to the Windows phone platform.”

Just shows how out of touch and ignorant Nokia is. They still believe they are the Nr. 1, which was the case 10 years ago. But those days are, luckily, over.

Barely anybody is buying windows phone. mostly because it sucks.

Another person who hasn't used a Windows Phone.

You uneducated people are just as bad as the carriers. Want to know why Windows Phone isn't selling as well? The carriers are so far up Apple and Google's ass that they always try to talk you out of a Windows Phone.

Seriously, test this out. Go to any carrier and ask about a Windows Phone and they'll try to interest you in an Android or iPhone.

I've been to a Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint store, and they all do the same thing. Sadly, they're getting paid to do that. What's your excuse for the blind fanboyism?

I'm 100% confident that after using a Windows Phone for a day, that you wouldn't be able to say "it sucks".

It may not be the best now, but it's growing. Don't underestimate the sleeping giant (Microsoft).

couldnt possibly be because theyve tried the phones and think they suck? Its always some excuse from the windows phone fanboys, either conspiracy theories or that haters couldnt have possibly used the junky os. I hate everything about it, I hate the calendar, I hate the email application, I hate that third party apps work like shit, I hate the calendar, the browser renders things randomly (try acid test), the ui is clunky and looks likes something out of 80s sci-fi (hardware acceleration doesnt make up for it), I hate being forced to use the cloud to get anything other than music on the phone, I hate hotmail, I hate the zune like music player, the specs are all a year behind, and most of all I hate that nokia killed meego just to support this crap.

Bullshit, I can tell you haven't used one.

Nice try though guy. Cherry pick some information about it from the net and then try to act like you've had one.

I don't like the iPhone or Android but do you see me going around saying "they suck"? No, because they don't.

I'm sorry fanboys, but Windows Phone doesn't suck either.

Complexity of Android? WTH is he smoking? Android 2.3.3 is a million times easier and more logical to use than anything Nokia has ever had.

I love my windows phone. Best phone I have ever owned. No interest in Iphone and my wife has an android phone.
