2 Tech Giants Throw a Hail Mary

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Andrew Tonner, technology editor and analyst, and David Williamson, health-care editor and analyst, discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, they discuss Nokia and its preparations to launch its new Lumia Windows-based phone. Our tech analyst sizes up the company's chances of success in the hard-fought smartphone market.

    The Lumia 710 will come to the US for $49.95 at T-Mobile. That is far cheaper than an I-Phone 4s. It is an awesome phone. Great for social networking, blazing fast internet, music, Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive.

    Nokia Drive is free turn by turn directions! The 5 mega pixel camera takes great photos.

    Throw out your Garmin, I-Pod and your camera . . . all you need is the Lumia 710.

    I have one and I love it.

    Nokia is #1 across the world. Nokia is still huge in Europe, India, China, Russia, South America and Austrailia . . . that is due to great products.

    Nokia will be back in the USA!

    Nokia makes great quality products that are very robust. You won't even need a case!

    This is a rubbish discussion. So Nokia have less market share in the US than Google or Apple - No s*** sherlock. And of course that means they are toast right .... Never mind their market share in India, China, Europe, the Far East, Australia etc. Nope, they are 4th in the USA behind RIM.... And of course, they can't improve on that. The Lumina 710 is coming out with T-Mobile after rebate and contract at less than $50 ..... Like the comment above, I would love to play this back to these jerks in 18 months.
