Nokia (Lumia?) prototype with QWERTY popped up

Nokia E series had one of the best qwerty keyboards at its time, and those phones were serious competitors to the mighty BlackBerry. The last QWERTY phone from Nokia was powered by s30 and s40 software, and in the period of touch screen domination we didn’t see qwerty smartphone till resurrected BlackBerry did it again with the KeyOne model. Now, we heard about Nokia wanting to put qwerty on board of the Lumia lineup, and many people wanted it badly. Well, badly done prototype of Nokia Lumia phone running WP 7.X just popped up to show us that Nokia listened to its fans, but the qwerty keyboard wasn’t up to the touch screen. Model that is marked as Nokia RX-100Β was probably some mix of Asha embedded into some larger Lumia phone.

This doesn’t mean that HMD will try to make a qwerty Android running Nokia smartphone, but this definitely means that there are some drawing plans of qwerty smartphone with Nokia logo.

God it is ugly πŸ™‚ What do you think guys, would you like to see qwerty Nokia smartphone?

      Hey buddy… Hope all is well.
      After waiting years and researching, and reading, I finally bit the bullet and bought Nokia stock. I bought just under $2500 worth of shares. Not sure if I made the right decision or not, but only time will tell. I bought it at $6.40

      I kept seeing it go from $4.11 to $4.52 to $5.22 to $6 and then it hit $6.54…
      So now, I am a shareholder for Nokia …

      • WOW!! πŸ™‚ Nice to hear this πŸ™‚ I don’t know much about how to buy shares but i think the best time was when Nokia was at its lowest point during wnd of WP8.1 days. When Nokia announced the sale of Nokia D&S the share prices hit high πŸ˜› I read a comment on AAWP or phonearena(I am not sure where) but that guys was very happy as he was a shareholder of Nokia πŸ˜›
        They keep falling and then rise again πŸ˜› I hope you buy more and get a lot of money so that you buy more again πŸ™‚

          Aww… Thanks man. That was very nice… It’smy first time doing this with Nokia so I hope it works out. Here in the US, it has gone up close to 50% in just over three months (Jan 31- May 24, 2017) … That is 50% !!!!!! If I was wise , i would have invested about $10,000 back then and by today, I probably would have had $15,000. I should have done it.

          Well, I guess it’s a waiting game now. I just hope that all the stuff I’m reading about T-Mobile and Nokia network’s 5G thing is true, cuz if it is, then Nokia will be the first to use 5G in the US, so the stock is sure to go up (i hope)

          (It’s a gamble)

      • Yeah bro! Congrats. I have been thinking of doing the same, but a little bit less shares :). Maybe if i sell this blog I would buy 10 shares πŸ™‚
        Seriously, guys here (Nokiamob) are interested in buying Nokia shares but the whole procedure is a little bit complicated in Croatia.

          How to buy it from India?? 😊 These things are too complicated 😜 They are not listed in Indian Stock market.

            I read an article on this site, thank you Love Nokia for referring me here, and seeing that Nokia has the potential to obtain €500 million euros from Apple annually plus royalties from every iPhone sold, along with a global rollout of 5G within the next 18 months or so, I figured it’s now or never.

            I would have loved to have bought it when it was 4 or 5 or 5.20 (US dollars) but I procrastinated and was lazy and was second guessing myself. But I finally bit the bullet and did it.

            I bought 350 shares, and Nokia pays 2.84% divided yield per year. (I’m in the medical field so all this stock stuff is brand new to me). So since it pays dividends, Nokia pays it’s shareholders, in my case, $45 per quarter, which means $180 per year, just to own it’s stock.

            The banking system in the US pays one tenth of one percent.
            So roughly $2500 dollars in the bank gets .26-.27 cents per year! Which is garbage!
            But owning $2500 in Nokia stock can potentially make $180 per year (due to dividend yield).

            It was a gamble I took and if it goes up, awesome, I may make some money , and if it goes down, then I lose some money.

            I’m optimistic though…

            They are not listed in the US stock market either, but in order to be listed, Nokia became an adr stock, pays .05 cents or .05% to someone, in order to be listed here.

            Again , I’m totally new at this.
            But I’m sure they are a globally traded company.

            In the US, they are on the NYSE, new York stock exchange.

            And if Nokia is the first to implement it’s 5G network globally, which it’s testing in the US with T-Mobile, in Dubai with some other company and in Tokyo with another company, I see potential. In about 18 months, I’ll see if my decision was fruitful or foolish…

            Either Nokia will be dominant in supplying 5G stuff and by February 2019, it will be worth a lot more (by licensing it’s technology to Apple, etc, and getting royalties) or it will make me about $15 per month and my $2400 ish investment may decrease. I honestly don’t know.

          Omg no!

          Don’t even think about it!

          Ever since Jay’s site is experiencing problems, and especially after a 9 month hiatus, this is the only relevant place we can go to to get Nokia info that’s up to date…

          Do not sell this site, please!

          Also, the manner in which I bought the stock was quite simple. I spoke with some guy who works there (a place called scottrade), he told me to open an account (in my case, it was something called a Roth IRA – so I wouldn’t pay taxes), and the next morning, I took a $5000 cashiers check to him, of which, I invested about $2400 ish into Nokia stock. Each trade costs $7 but since I had no clue what I was doing, I paid the guy $32 to do it for me.

          The way I see it is, my money is collecting dust in the corrupt US banks. At least with Nokia, I have the potential to make some money, and if not, the option exists to make some form of dividends (which in my case is about $15/ month). That $15 per month of free money is like a quarter tank of gas, or a free meal, or my monthly gas bill for my house.

          Let me know how I can help…

          • Don’t worry, Nokiamob is here to stay. We are still not profitable so our friends from the biggest Croatian mobile phone tech site is providing the server space. We are safe for now :).
            Well, got to say that it is rather expensive in the US to do some stock trading. Problem here is to find someone or some company that is trading at Helsinki or NY stock exchange and buy stocks. Still didn’t find that company, or extra money to buy the stocks :).

            And also, the fact that the owner of this site replies and is part of the discussion is very nice, very humbling, very much appreciated. I genuinely thank you for being so involved.

          • Thx man, i like to chat since I’m pushing my thoughts and views here. It is nice to chat with wonderful Nokia community πŸ™‚

          • Yes! This is the best thing i like about this site. All writers have a conversation with us πŸ™‚

          • People in US and other developed countries are paying a lot of money on products or services. πŸ™ You people have no other option. How much does it cost for a hair cut in US? How much does it cost for a meal at Mc.Donalds(which i believe is the cheapest)? Do you people get interest on money kept in banks?

    When Nokia joined wp there was a slide show with the form factors and resolutions that will be used with wp and there was a mockup of a qwerty phone withe the old symbian resolution . But when phones started coming out they settled only on 800×480 and regular touchscreen phone form factor. They justified back then the move with people not being intrested in the qwerty form factor anymore as BlackBerry was just starting to sink. Anyways this is just an early prototype, a hardware test bed to test the functionality, not even close to what a final phone would look like πŸ˜€

  • This device looks like some E-Series qwerty phone crammed into a box lol
