I hate Android. Google is trying to take over everything….

I am preferring other search engines like Yahoo these days. If you want to go for a nice smart phone, go for IPhone….

Nokia has always struggled in the U.S. mobile phone market with rivals Apple, Research in Motion, Samsung and Motorola Mobility taking up most of the market.This move could help Nokia save costs
