Nokia (NOK) lops 15% off the price of its midrange Lumia 800 Windows phones and makes smaller cuts to other models that run the OS. It's not a total surprise given that Nokia introduced two devices yesterday that run on Windows 8, including the "budget-friendly" Lumia 820 - the successor to the 800.

    Remember this? http://zd.net/Q1NYCh

     

    "Unless the whole package, including looks, functionality and of course stability are there, then there is little chance for Android to succeed."

     

    "At this stage," he adds, "it would be safe to assume that Android uptake will be quite slow, and a lot of work needs to be done in order for [it] to become a success. It's not to say this is impossible, but it will be an uphill battle."

    Analysts only bet on a team after the game is over and the result is known... that's why they all love stocks at their 52-week highs.

    I think that's particularly true when it comes to consumer tech; most finance guys (sorry if I offend anybody) are not exactly 'hip'.

    Don't trade or invest on analysts' "analysis." They only tell you what their little brain and ensuing narrow speculation dictate them to do. That' s why they work someone else, getting a monthly allowance. They only write to keep their jobs. You follow that then you work for them ("analysts").

    Wow. 1 day. I tried! I said this had to happen and took the abuse. It still won't matter. Margin reduction is the twisting of the dagger.

     

    Elop isn't able to save NOK. He clearly is panic selling of the future & screwing up the present.. I don't see a way for them to get to profitability and the handful of patents they sold were the key ones. The 1000s left are not in mobile area..

     

    Just trade this symbol from headlines ,but, not as an investment and don't even think about the old dividend. That will not be seen ! DL

    The patents sold by Nokia to Fringo were old patents and of no meaning to their recent products and/ or services. Besides that, Nokia still earns money on those patents without all legal trouble. But, please explain. Why do you conclude that those patents are so called "keypatents"?... or are you simply bashing Nokia out of fear they gain marketshare.

    Don't worry, latin sock, the sky isn't falling yet (at least not until the world figures out the Super Mario can't save it overnight ), and NOK isn't going out of business tomorrow because the CEO wore jeans on stage or some other ridiculous crap like that.

    So... Nokia with decades making mobiles phones have sold all their mobile patents and are left with non mobile patents?

     

    Does Seeking Alpha have a way to "killfile" complete muppets?

    He doesn't need to wear evening dress, but no need to look like the janitor either. Just needs to look professional. And the other presenters were even worse. What WERE they thinking?

    Middle aged men just don't look good in jeans that don't fit.

     

    Look, I wear casual clothing all the time, just a T-shirt or polo, shorts, or slacks, belt, and sandals, as I live in a hot place, but then I am not the CEO of a major corporation presenting a new product on which the future of my company depends. It is just a question of being appropriate for a public occasion.

     

    I don't care if Elop works in his underpants in his office, if that is what he thinks is appropriate.

    I was impressed and can't wait to buy. My only disappointed is I still do not know when it will be available via Verizon. If Verizon doesn't offer soon enough I'll be switching to ATT. Verizon new plan is priced out of the ball park, but I'll wait a little longer and see what they will offer with a two year contract as mine is up!
