    • Seppo Sahrakorpi: Nokia has already clearly passed RIM, which currently has 3.01% market share in NA (dropping from 4.91% in July).

    • Seppo Sahrakorpi: Nokia at #5 and Samsung #2 are the only vendors whose market share is growing. http://bit.ly/10uQir2

    • KIA Investment Research: January should set the tone, but I think 2013 will be the year for Nokia.

    • oneinfiniteloop: Luke, personally I think it will be a very good year for both $NOK and $BBRY - with Android player $RIMM is also playing the correct notes!

    • oneinfiniteloop: IMO Samsung will be loosing market share, $BBRY is going to be to Android what Usian Bolt is to sprint. The opportunity of $RIMM is huge.

    • oneinfiniteloop: My guess is $BBRY will include $NOK maps - that will be a sweet tune to my ears, that should bring in Augmented Reality to $RIMM as well.

    • Nuno Donato: Not likely, $BBRY has a partnership with TomTom. they already released their own navigation product in the UK with BBMaps

    • KIA Investment Research: Apple maps were based on TomTom as well... :\ RIM should go with Nokia.

    • oneinfiniteloop: $BBRY hasn't announced whom it is going with as yet and the $65M settlement was about $100M below estimate hence I hazard that guess.

    • oneinfiniteloop: $BBRY will gain quite a bit, Nokia Drive, Augmented Reality, etc. and it plays well for Nokia's aspirations for the enterprise market.

    • oneinfiniteloop: so I think it is a win-win for both parties.

    • KIA Investment Research: @OIL, I see what you are saying; "You use our maps and we'll forgive $N million" Maybe :)

    • oneinfiniteloop: Plays perfectly for both $BBRY and $NOK. $RIMM saves on money while $NOK gets to play to its strategy and get access to $RIMM's customers.
      1/8/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: While $BBRY gets excellent applications from $NOK which it sorely wants.
