Stephen Elop taking your questions live today, 9am EDT! (Update: Live!)

How can we ask the questions? Is it through Twitter? I just wanna know if they're gonna ditch the "exclusive" nonsense. 

Please explain how exclusivity enhances sales in the US.

I would buy a 930 today if it weren't exclusive to Verizon.  Seems restrictive to me.

It's a shame I may not be available for this - want a reason why flagship Nokia phones (bar the 1520) don't have sd slots, and whether Nokia will have their own file browser, as part of their own suite of apps.

That and where is the 1020 successor!!!!!!!!

Worse is it was yet another carrier exclusive.

I hope Microsoft makes unlocked phones available in their stores, just need GSM and CDMA. For the rest of the world they can use the Nokia stores.

Why are they removing the nokia branding they must already know that some of us entered wp just because of nokia's name on the back of every lumia

You can already do this for the videos saved in pictures folder, just cut or copy the video, you want to share in saved pictures folder.

Better option.... download Aerize Explorer to manage and share files and folders. It's free but a little buggy. You can live with that. ;)

@yaar dude that everybody knows... I want an independent way to share video files just,like sharing music files.. Where the hell am I going to get a pc to transfer it to camera roll n the share... Its a shit way... I was expecting better in wp 8.1

Use aerize explorer, i do the same if i want to send a new video to my friends on WhatsApp then i copy files to saved picture folder.

+1520, he destroyed Nokia hope he doesnt destroy MS now.. he has good reputation for that,

Before Nokia[edit]

Elop was a director of consulting for Lotus Development Corporation before becoming CIO for Boston Chicken in 1992,[10][11] which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1998.[12] In the same year, he joined Macromedia's Web/IT department[11] and worked at the company for seven years,[13] where he held several senior positions, including CEO from January 2005[14] for three months before their acquisition by Adobe Systems was announced in April 2005.[7][15]

===========

I've read lot of your comments regarding this matter. I understand the frustration. Just a bit curious:

Do you really despise Elop and hold him responsible for everything bad ever happened to Nokia?

What could he had done differently to make things better?

All this spite against him, don't you think its little unfair?

In your vastly educated opinion; as of this moment, is Nokia getting better in sales and reputation or still struggling with either or both?

 

My point is; if its like "this ship has sailed"; no goodness (innovation, device, technology) from Nokia team would ever change your opinion and win your heart whatsoever, so what is the point of fighting it. On the contrary, if there are potentially good suggestions and expectations / goals, then this uproar-cum-criticism can be transformed into extremely productive cause, you would have a very valid case and masses would be lining up to support you..

I opened up the source link. It's like people saw a few key words and started asking all the questions they have on their mind. I wish people would read entire articles.

I can see people being a bit harsh on Elop, I really hope someone makes him feel really uncomfortable with the right question

Why high end products don't have an option for SD cards or why don't they have only 32/64GB versions, instead of 16GB?

If we'll see a quad/2gb ram version of the 820 (4.5" tops!) with HD display.

If we'll have the oportunity to choose different programs for our daily tasks (music, browsing, etc).

Please, someone ask him why in the heck we can't seem to get SD card capabilities on the majority of phones that are put out.  

 

it aint lack of app, etc that slowing growth, its the carrier exclusive thats doing it, you can get an iphone on all carriers, as well as the galaxy series S4. thats the old way of doing things from when the iphone first came out, even apple stoped that to further growth

In summary,
Q: Really specific thing?
A: Generic executive speak.

Waste of time unless you cared about his favorite pizza.

Does Microsoft Is Going To Bring Dual SIM Flagship With Full HD Models In Lumia? And What The Series Of Lumia Is Called By Microsoft ?

will support for HiD bluetooth still come to windows phone? would make it more productive for office mobile for windows phone.

Wouldn't that be a question for the Microsoft office team who produced the recent version of office for ipad???

This was just like the Chris Weber Q&A. None of my questions were answered. Such a waste of time. But he happily told us what kind of pizza he likes. 

Instead of asking the real important questions, someone asks about a pizza!, i think this question was asked by a Kid. 

Whole thing seemed like a lot of hot air and very little substance. Its not that I didn't like what I heard, I just didn't hear ANYTHING.
