  • Microsoft (MSFT -2.6%) considered making an offer for Nokia (NOK -8.3%) in late 2011 and examined the company's books, but both parties decided against a sale, reports The Register's Andrew Orlowski. He speculates Microsoft would prefer to see Nokia, which is hemorrhaging cash, become cheaper before making a bid. Nokia fell sharply today after Samsung shot down rumors of takeover interest.   [View news story]

    Lumia 610 sells well in China. The link is published in one of Chinese biggest website. One could use Google translate to see the rough idea.

  • Nokia (NOK) jumps 5% premarket on an unconfirmed rumor it could be a takeover target for Samsung.   [View news story]
    No, it is not samsung. I think it is Facebook that is going to buy Nokia. Finnish local newspaper cited a pervious Nokia French manager's comment that Facebook is going to buy Nokia with 10 Billion Euro.

  • Nokia: It Is Time To Buy This Severely Undervalued Stock  [View article]
    I already commented in other thread that Nokia and Microsoft would be 3rd choice for consumer driven by operators. The most important is that Nokia and Microsoft has already show their strength in Lumia series, especially 800 and 900. If you look at how excellent Lumia 800,900 hardware, plus Navigation, office, skydrive software. Nokia and Microsoft alliance would show their muscle in the coming years.

  • On a rough day for Euro tech stocks, Nokia (NOK -6.6%) is falling harder than most, and is closing in on the month's lows. A downgrade to Sell from MKM Partners, which now has a $2 PT on the company, is contributing to the decline.   [View news story]
    MKM partners assume Nokia will burn all its cash within two years. And new Android and iOS phone will be consumer's focus instead of Nokia Lumia phone.

    Nokia's quality is proved again by my personnel experience. I do not why, I notice Lumia 800 screen is dirty, then I washed screen just by water from tap and even with some shampoo. After that, I made a call, the other end said my voice quality is so poor and voice level is so low. I put Lumia 800 into oven for 50-100 degrees for 5 minutes, then the phone works again.

    What a quality of Nokia Lumia phone is!

    charles6767: Thanks for excellent reply. Search engine is really important. And google does better than MSFT.

    But currently, in my personnel experience, people buy Nokia because its brand, its quality, its GPS offline navigation feature, and office suit. If Lumia search engine is better than Android, then Nokia share would not be low as today's level. Today's share level is something Nokia go brankrupcy in one or two years. What I believe Android would be top list, apple would be no.2 and Nokia windows would be No. 3. If that is realized, Nokia share still have big rooms to rise.

    One bad point of Android is that today we developer want to developer some real Android compatible application, we need to buy at least dozens of Android phone(up 400) because each android vendor has some api customization.

    In all, market allows top 3 players. If MSFT, Nokia alliance could take one, Nokia share shall rise.

    I am Nokia windows Lumia 800 user. I feel the phone is quite good. The more I use it, the more I like it. I also used low end ZTE Blade (Android). Both usability are good.

    Refer to windows phone sales figure in China, I believe iPhone sells at least more than 1 million in a quarter in China. Does that mean windows phone really sells so crazily just after a couple of month launch in China.

    Even if it is just the figure to the channel, not to the end customers. Channel needs to pay or deposit, then they can get the phone. If they get the phone in stock, they have more motivation to sell them. In another way of thinking, if channel are willing to stock windows phone, it also mean the confidence.

    Offline map with car navigation feature is a killing application in Nokia lumia windows phone. Here in Finland, many people chooses Lumia because they do not need GPS anymore. Map could be updated free with car voice Navigation feature. No roaming fee for Europeans also.

    People are in a big hurry/expect too much to see a new ecosystem growing. When iphone 1st generation in the market, it is only a couple of millions. When android first in the market, it is also a couple of million. windows pick up, it starts 1 million, then 2 million, then tens of millions. Also at the same time, when iphone first in the market, one could see a lot of iphone are returned to repair center. Now windows phone bug are really small quantity. Give microsoft and Nokia a little bit more time, I see a big upwards potential.

    I am a nokia stock owner, but really small or trivial.

    Nokia window phone 900 or 800, 710 all have free offline map navigation feature which could save Europeans money when they travel across the board. I feel it is a killer application. European would like it. As reported, windows phone in Europe begin to pick up. It is time to see Nokia shares up. To be honest, I am a small Nokia share owner. I see Nokia and microsoft partnership makes a lot of sense in the industry. It gives operator third choice.
