    For those stating that cdma is dying and therefore Nokia abandoned
    making its own phones for cdma,
    cdma must be very vibrant, as Nokia is resuming making its own phones
    for cdma, again.

    In reality, I think it was the Broadcomm licensing litigation that convinced
    Nokia to stop making CDMA models, rather than any impending doom of CDMA.
    Now that the Broadcomm matter is apparently out of the way, there's no
    reason Nokia shouldn't vie for dominance of the US CDMA market, particularly
    with Motorola's current troubles.

    I think it started before that, due to Qualcomm's stiff fees. Hopefully Nokia
    won't ignore the market like they used to.

    Nah. Motorola still make a decent CDMA phones. For many, many years before
    they outsourced to Pantech, Nokia CDMA phones SUCKED ASS and Nokia showed
    no interest in making them work properly. (Been there, done that.)

    Yeah, Nokia built a bunch of crummy CDMA handsets, particularly when they
    insisted on using their own chipsets to avoid using Qualcomm.

    Hopefully they'll get it right this time...

    Of course, Moto DOES have their own issues. If you want me to rant for an hour,
    ask me about what happened last year when I sent my PEBL in for repair.

    But still, talk of Nokia bumping Moto out of the market is premature, at best.
