    jb, maybe you´re right. I said S40 but I meant S30, then.

    If you check, you´will find a great amount of percentages given to "unknown" brands. I am almost 100% sure that in most of the countries a part of those percentages are Nokia phones. With the big exception being India where only Micromax their biggest local brand is shown by name.

    In China, for example, they show the percentages of 3 or 4 names of local brands. But still the "unknown" brand in China has about 30% of market share in August. I really would like to know how much of that belongs to Nokia.

    Being this the case, in some countries Nokia would have more than 60% of the market. For example, Bangladesh (165M), Kenya (40M), Indonesia (240M), India (1150M), Sudan (40M), Tanzania (40M), Pakistan (175M), Nigeria (150M), etc.

  • Nokia's Cash Position Explained [View article]
    That Sony gadget/appendix to a phone is a dud. You should read the jocose comments of people in blogs.
    Sony is going in the wrong direction again. Backwards.
    The future is portability and simplicity.

    We could paraphrase Prince of Wales about a proposal extension to the National Gallery in London, May 1994:

    "A monstrous carbuncle on the face of a much loved and elegant friend".

    How I love the humour and the sarcasm of the english people . :-)))

    Nokia is not an american company and Europe is not America. What I mean is, I don´t believe the Finish Government would allow such a thing, MS acquiring Nokia, unless in extraordinary situations like Nokia in danger of closing the doors. Which it isn´t.
    Stop the speculation, there´s no point.
    Elop is just the CEO. The real boss is the BOD representing the shareholders. And they´re scandinavians.

  • Nokia: Sell Side Bears Don't Play Fair [View article]
    Master, that is exactly what I think and what I think it happens. But let people continue with that drivel. Makes them happy, but they don´t have a clue!

    The discounts are given by the carriers.
    So if a carrier is giving the phone for free in exchange for a 2 or 3 years plan, the phone maker is also giving phone for free to the carrier? Come on, get real!

    Use the bar graph. Place the pointer over the bar to obtain the percentage.

    Here is the link to the Polish numbers in Statcounter in tab form. Then you can simulate for different countries and time horizon.

    If you place the pointer over the tab, you will obtain the market share for the different phone makers.

    Happy simulations! :-)))

    Genesis and Adrien, this was not difficult to do and I´m surprise that nobody have done it before. A piece of cake.

    Of course this has to be feature and smart phones together. But I don´t think the S40, which is also Nokia, is included.

    I don´t know what those statcounter numbers mean. I don´t know how they are obtained and if they are totally reliable. But I don´t think they are very far from the truth.

    These numbers, or others obtained locally, are the numbers Nokia use in their continuous assessment of the markets they are in for strategic purposes.

    When a company like Nokia make their investments decisions, it is based on a strategy according to the info they have, and it is done in a very professional way. Scandinavians are very good and cool in strategic thinking. And they see the whole world as their market, for they have very small home markets.

    I know it because, although not born there, I´ve lived 20 years in Scandinavian where I´ve studied and worked. :-)))

    The reason why they launched the 515 has to do with what they know about the markets they´re in, the preferences of the clients, future trends and other specifics of the markets they launched it. Nothing is done by hazard.
    It is not for nothing Nokia became worlds biggest phone maker and is still the second.

    In SA a space is not a space, so I do it again.

    Nokia has not only good prospects in the next 6 months but also in the next 6 years.

    There is a tendency to think the world is USA, but it is only 5% of the world population and a very small market for Nokia. So let´s get some perspective and a look into the future.

    I decided to check Statcounter´s numbers, without knowing how good is it´s predictability power or how reliable are its numbers. But I had some fun gathering the data. :-)))

    I checked Nokias market share, May-July 2013, in about 30 countries, showing their population for perspective.

    Population Mk Share

    Algeria (34Million 19,3 % (2nd pl)
    Argentina (41M) 22 % (2nd pl)
    Bangladesh (161M) 65% (1st pl)
    Brazil (195M) 20% (2nd)
    China (1350M) 4,2%
    Egypt (76M) 41% (1st)
    India (1150M) 47.5% (1st)
    Indonesia (240M) 45 % (1st)
    Italy (60M) 8 % (3rd)
    Malaysia (28M) 12,5% (2nd)
    Mexico (112M) 16% (3rd)
    Marocco (32M) 26% (2nd)
    Nigeria (150M) 65% (1st)
    Pakistan (173M) 58% (1st)
    Philippines (93M) 21% (2nd)
    Poland (40M) 19% (1st)
    Romania (21,5M) 17,5% (2nd)
    Uzbequistan (28M) 53% (1st)
    UAE (5M) 41% (1st)
    Ukraine (47M) 28% (1st)
    Turkey (74M) 17% (2nd)
    Tunisia (10M) 35% (1st)
    Thailand (64M) 12% (4rd)
    Saudi Arabia (28M) 19,5 % (3rd)
    Russia (145M) 16% (4rd)
    South Africa (50M) 29% (2nd)

    There is a lot of people in the world and a lot of people in need of a phone, either a feature or a smart phone. Nokia it is very well positioned in many countries to cater for those needs, because they have been around for quite some time.

    Some countries have less buying power, but they have enough buying power to buy a phone and that´s what´s important. Most of them don´t need a smart phone in the near future.

    By continents:

    Africa Nokia has 47% share (1st place)
    Asia 34,5 % (1st pl.)
    South America 18,5% (2nd pl.)
    Europe 6,9% (3rd pl.)

    The world is getting more and more developed and Nokia is very well positioned to take advantage of that with all the new models being launched, feature and smart phones, and new software versions (MS) in the near future.

  • Nokia: Sell Side Bears Don't Play Fair [View article]
    Forget all about the share price and enjoy the beautiful pics and videos following the link to the national geographic site.

    Personally, as an investment tool, for the future of Nokia as a phone maker, this has more value than all the drivel about technicals.

    People can babble all they want with statistics and technical drivel, looking backwards to try to see in the future, but in the end it is the future client´s satisfaction and perception that counts. As simple as that.


    WOW! Beautiful! Wonderful! Stunning! Awesome! Whatever!
