  • Don't look for Nokia (NOK -2.3%) to release a Lumia phone with a physical keyboard, says smartphone EVP Jo Harlow. “It’s really a question, “is there a large enough audience out there?,” she rhetorically asks, while calling those who still want QWERTYs a "dying breed." Outside of BlackBerry's (BBRY +0.4%) Q10, there has been a dearth of major QWERTY smartphone announcements lately. [View news story]
    I know for sure that BBRY is paying Nokia for every BB10 sold :)

    Nokia Lumia key pad is very easy to use especially in landscape format, Nokia currently still makes/offers qwerty keypads in their Asha line. I believe Asha 302 has qwerty.

  • Groupon Special: Buy A $6 Stock For $4.20 [View article]
    In a note to employee, he said: After four and a half intense and wonderful years as CEO of Groupon, I've decided that I'd like to spend more time with the family. Just kidding - I was fired today. If your wondering why.... You haven't been paying attention."

    LOL... Best corporate email ever.

    It took AAPL some years to be released in the VZ market. Nokia has bigger fishes to fry globally other than persuading Verizon's 110 million mobile customers who has a strong affinity with AAPL and Samsung products. In due time it will be released to VZ. Capturing the lower end smartphone market is a bold move for Nokia alongside a strangle-hold on the feature market, again globally. LONG NOKIA are the words for the day.

    Im glad Nokia did not announced any high end phones today. It would've destroyed the 920's image. Elop and team sees the bigger picture on how to secure Nokia's future by capturing the feature market and help them transition to the low cost Lumia lines. Higher end phone should be save later in the year to create more buzz and not steal the spotlight off the Lumia 920, which is still considered the most innovative phone in the market.

    I should've bought some puts to hedge my calls, my options are getting creamed.

    This is the same crashed we experienced on Sept 5th, 2012 with the WP8 Lumia Launch.

  • The Music Stops For ResMed: Potential Downside, And Management Already Has A Seat [View article]
    Resmed has the sleep medicine world on a choke hold. Best products hands down, no company can compare. I do agree that it is a bit pricey at the moment, but $10-$14 is a bit low don't you think. I see it going back to low 30's after a correction. Looking to make a decent position again for my dividend portfolio. This company is leading the sleep field, 90 million people left undiagnosed, cyclical product. etc. etc. Great solid company to hold. Thanks for the article, still a good read.

    Used it with sincerity and not to belittle anyone Charles. I see myself as a bag holder because after exercising the 3,000 share ITM LEAPS with the experiment I'm conducting. I will have a total 10,000 shares by years end. So, I am a proud bag holder :)

    I can turn on everyone here for fun, but whats the point we have enough of those jokers. It wouldn't matter because I am Long and Calm NOK.

    If you say so Luke ;)

    Nokia is in a middle of a transition, killing off Symbian for the Asha line and manufacturing all types of Lumias. The new assmebly line is on its way, ETA 1 month and i'm sure assembly restructuring as well ;)

    Ford motors almost went bankrupt when they decided to produce only one color (black) while other manufacturers were doing multiple colors. History is cool :)

    I don't understand why MSFT leaves such a sour taste in the U.S.. MSFT is a big part of the American computing systems and resources if they like it or not. The only valid reason why people despise MSFT because of the gigantic presence they have here, which automatically labels them as sell out's. I will never understand that motive of thinking. People here are not easily satisfied even it brings conveniences to their lives and always looking for new and innovative product not in the norm. Which leads to your comment "manages to dissociate consumers from negative Windows related associations that are still prevalent" it makes total sense. Nokia with its new fresh look and specs still gets frown upon here due to their association with MSFT. A catalyst is needed to remind these folks how Nokia was in the past. The problem with that marketing strategy, as being humans, we easily forget.

    We are talking about mobile phones, still in the lines momentary joy other than functionality for the herd, as being replaceable. I do believe in the story, the global story.

    System? Are you referring to build-a-bear approach, I don't know anyone else ready for that type of consumer satisfaction, especially the younger generation. The fast food generation, with instant gratification mentality, or just plain lazy kids. Not to many people in the U.S. are introverted thinkers, most fall into the herd mentality.

    Maybe one of the main reason U.S. Consumers are taking so long to catch the Nokia fever again due to they're affinity with Apple and Samsung. I'm the only one in my circle who owns a 920. :(

    The graphene material also in Nokia's pipeline which can can be applied to 3d phone chassis printing . Henry Ford had the patent on the first plastic automobile which was 30% lighter than metal built.

    I'm not really sure Nokia device knows different avenues to increase business productivity, but I believe NSN will be a big player in that category. NOKIA hardware seems to be targeting individual customer preference globally at the moment through telecos partnerships. Although with MSFT OS ecosystem, a lot can happen in the future. WP8 experienced 100% growth from 2011-12 a small gain of 1.8 to 3%. Compared to others (% wise) its a big jump. :)
