    The sad demise of a once proud global brand.

     

    Nokia is the Wang Computers of 2nd generation cell phones.

    He can`t help himself, he`s obviously trying to peddle influence to short NOK, a little late in the game IMO.

    don't like the doom and gloom stuff, but sure like the price of the additional shares I'm picking up.

    O.K. I'll make you feel better:

     

    "The Lumia 900 is the world's top selling smartphone and Nokia is out of trouble and its profit margins are increasing and the shares will be $20 by year end."

     

    Do you feel better now?

    This is winner take all. The business community will NOT support all the devices and operating systems. The Apple price premium is miniscule compared to corp IT support costs.

     

    Now that RIMM is out, you think NOK is in?

    Nokia was in trouble before the minor data handling clitch. I suspect the European telecoms at least will support Nokia as much as possible, to avoid falling into the clutches of Apple/Google and more than they already are. Nokia I suspect will be better about protecting privacy of users.
    Who knows what those busy Asians will do? Android is a pretty poor system as I recall, and not as easy to update as MS Phone. In any event, was anyone really expecting that Nokia even with the best phone in the world could turn around the company between November of 2011 and now, barely one quarter forward?
    It's going to take years folks, and the outcome is indeed not known - welcome to the world of investing as opposed to day-trading.

     

    Nokia is NOT a Warren Buffet stock. But, those Finns are good phone-makers and MS is pretty good, if not brilliant at software. I have been through the Apple hysteria before - I tried their stuff and found it cranky and difficult to use. But in the end, the phone business is commoditized - Apple is overpriced unless you are a teeny-bopper addicted to music 24-7 or facebook or whatever the latest time-waster on the internet might be.

    I just came back from Hilton Head SC and stayed with a friend of mine. He and I are both IT folks and he had bought an IPAD sometime ago. Even though he likes the idea of having one, it did nothing but crash all week long. Both he and I looked on the internet for a fix and found to our dismay that many people were having the same problem. It appeared to be a very unstable device. Perhaps, this was the case of too many applications being introduced to this platform in such a short period of time without the proper quality control processes. I hope that Nokia's introduction of their tablet will have a better quality control program than Apple has demonstrated.
    Appears they have responded very quickly on this connection issue. My friend is still dealing with daily crashes of his IPAD.
