No doubt how well Windows Phone in real doing in the market? And over the top, the major company which has got a lot of pain for opting Microsoft’s mobile operating system over its own Symbian operating system and even still continuing to take that pain is Nokia. It’s being two year when the Finnish mobile company decided to opt for Windows Phone and had decided that it will give Windows Phone the two years’ timeframe too to see how well they well go, but today we got that timeframe over too.

According to a report on Reuters today, Nokia investors told company Chief Stephen Elop that their patience wearing thin in order to at least catch up with its rivals Apple and Samsung in smartphone market. Shareholders are now asking Elop to reconsider his 2011 decision over switching to the Microsoft’s mobile operating system.

“You’re a nice guy … and the leadership team is doing its best, but clearly, it’s not enough,” one shareholder, Hannu Virtanen, told Elop. “Are you aware that results are what matter? The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Please switch to another road,” he said.

No doubt how frustrating the sense the company’s shareholders are getting inside in them, but in real unless and until they think of actually switching back to their own mobile operating system or think of opting for some other road, there condition going to be remain the same.
