PocketNow’s Jaime Rivera is giving quite a lot of praise for the Nokia Lumia 1020 saying that Nokia has nailed it.

But there’s a growing trend across the blogosphere that sees Microsoft as a hindrance to Nokia. Why? Because they aren’t improving at the rate they need to.

Despite the billions of cash reserves idly sitting away, despite the thousands of staff members, we have possibly one guy, one guy eating a donut with sugar coated fingers working on Windows Phone. And that’s when he’s not on Reddit.

Jaime things that MS’s lack of wider hardware support is letting Nokia down. Seriously, fantastic move on Microsoft’s behalf to add challenges such as tight hardware controls. I mean, isn’t it fun when your work is a lot harder than it’s supposed to be? When fighting the competition, isn’t it even better when you aren’t well equipped to fight and thus must make yourself stronger in other ways? No? Someone please tell Belfiore and his team of people who do nothing this.

At the time when Nokia joined with MS, WP looked very promising. The rate of development looked quite good. Now, they seem to be stuck or going backwards. BACKWARDS. Seriously MS, is Ballmer actually working for Samsung/Google/Apple to ensure the internal destruction of MS?

Perhaps we’re all being a bit too harsh. Perhaps it’s because we’re not seeing anything happen and because we’re all so jaded, we’d rather not have hope for a positive but instead express anger. Perhaps it’s a bit too hot and the heat is making everything irritate me a lot more than it would otherwise. I need some ice cream.
