- With its phone unit now in Microsoft's hands, Nokia's (NOK -5.8%) technologies group has unveiled an Android homescreen replacement app called Z Launcher.
- Among other things, Z Launcher shows a list of frequently-accessed apps and contacts on a phone's home page, and allows users to search for local and Web content by scribbling letters with their fingers.
- Z Launcher is unlikely to move the needle much for Nokia, especially since plenty of alternatives exist. But it appears to be a sign of things to come in the post-Microsoft era. Nokia exec Brook Eaton: "At the end of the day, we're now able to explore new ways to get to market, which we didn't have to first deliver in house ... We're unhandcuffed."
- Shares are lower today as a result of trading ex-dividend.
