    The 40% was the start of the climb....smart investors will hold on a bit longer.....We have realised some money from the Smart Devices division that the shorts had written off as worthless - now NSN is worth a good punt....

  • Nokia estimated to have 87% of WP8 base; Bernstein downbeat about Q3 [View news story]
    How come that analyst hasn't been fired yet? His customers would have lost bundles if they followed his advice on Nokia to date.

    I guess he doesn't allow for the cheap price they purchased the other 50% of NSN for either....

  • BlackBerry: Time For Longs To Wave The White Flag? [View article]
    Nokia's top end phones have a better, faster, more user friendly and more proven OS that requires less memory and resources, is more secure, has better and more apps, a better camera, better screen, better touch panel, better microphones, are cheaper, and have better navigation and maps....

    Hence why Nokia's market share rose to 5.6% and Blackberry's dropped to 0.7% as per Kantar figure for April 2013...

    " BlackBerry is in a lot of trouble but less trouble than it was in a year ago."

    No not really. Blackberry's mobile sales and more worryingly, it's subscriptions are in steep and increasing decline...All Blackberry have done is reduce the cash burn rate.

    Secure OS? Lol. BB10 was already completely compromised via a Flash exploit. The only unhacked OS is Windows Phone.

  • BlackBerry 10 Fail: Now, What? [View article]
    Most of which companies will realise that they can ditch their BES boat anchors and move to a lower TCO platform like Windows Phone.

    You can already see this happening as Blackberry sales and subscriptions decline, and Windows Phone pushed Blackberry into 4th place globally a few months ago - and continues to grow market share while Blackberry continues to lose it!

  • Huawei says in an e-mailed statement it "has no plans" to acquire Nokia (NOK +4.6%). Shares have given back a big chunk of their earlier gains, but they still closed up sharply. Huawei consumer group chairman Richard Yu qualified his remarks about his company being willing to buy Nokia by suggesting Nokia's commitment to Windows Phone could be an issue. "Whether Windows Phone will be successful is difficult to say ... It has a very small market share." Huawei launched the W1, a low-end WP8 device, earlier this year. [View news story]
    " A very small market share"

    But growing rapidly....

  • Nokia (NOK +9.3%) soars after the chairman of Huawei's consumer business group says his company would be open to buying Nokia in an off-hand remark. Any offer from Huawei would face intense EU scrutiny, given long-standing worries about the company's Chinese government/military ties. Is this a repeat of BlackBerry/Lenovo[View news story]
    If they divested of NSN - which sells sensitive carrier equipment, I can't see any national security objections to selling Nokia to the Chinese...
