Gartner has Ericsson and Nokia close at 1 and 2 at the leading edge (LTE, LTE-Advanced). Ericsson has more than 2x the wireless infrastructure sales of Nokia and Nokia has more than 2x the wireless infrastructure sales of Alcatel so Ericsson has more legacy business than Nokia or Alcatel combined. Nokia's one clear advantage over Ericsson and Alcatel is that HERE's location cloud is already one of the most advanced cloud plays being monetized so Nokia's cloud opportunities lie in the fact that they supply the networks and they themselves are one of the biggest cloud customers around.
I'm going to wear my lederhosen to make it authentic!

Mexico ruling came after MSFT deal closed, India was before. Neither will amount to anything or have even a one cent affect on NOK or MSFT share price. What is holding NOK back now is the weak Euro vs dollar and weak and slow share buy back program. NOK needs to show some mojo and so far this management has been feckless. With its cash and assets NOK should already be above $10.
We will welcome a chef from Germany to prepare German dishes for the Oktoberfest. 10 different kind of German beers will add to our selections. Departure time Thur 3am est. Thank you nok20 team
I'm working on a Bill with my State Representatives that will deport any Florida male resident who doesn't watch MNF. If you're lucky I'll arrange for you to get a seat with a view on the boat.
Some European may be refined and more civilized (I would agree and a great place to visit), but are they up to getting there hands dirty in a most unrefined world? I don't think so, that's why you got America.
Hope everyone was on my Cowboys last nite. Romo quick release was firing last nite.
On a side note, these games are looking more and more like soap opera / wrestling to me. Every play outcome is being controlled from a center in NY and there have been many many "missed" calls so far, esp this wk. I'm still a fan, but they need to rid themselves of this scripted look.
Can't watch football tonight, I'll will be watching SleepyHollow, which is just as relative. Haven't you noticed that US Football has become passe?

Helsinki Shares, Currency Effect, US ADR's
Long NOK $X and have hedged with about 45% $X of DRR -- the Morgan Stanley Euro Double short -- appreciates 2% for every 1% decline of the EURO vs the US Dollar. Does this make sense? Welcome any feedback. This hedges against changes in the Euro currency (forecast to decline as Europe starts printing and US exits QE, simultaneously!), not to mention the short Euro isn't a bad trade to begin with. No offense intended.
This trade has performed well so far. Given Planetnokia's slamming of Americans in an earlier post today, I don't mind observing that that Draghi's need for QE isn't being driven by the Europeans' lust for competitiveness. It's a bet that such QE is imminent that peaked my interest in the Euro double short. It's not a true "hedge" for being long Nokia in American $, as I am. It is somewhat, and a good trade in the absolute (so far). As Europe begins printing, America will be exiting, thus, the proposed currency divergence.
This said, the refined European cultures and the nature of European sport are things that as an American, I recognize and admire.
Interesting. So Nokia is not responsible for the Mexican ruling, but it is responsible for the Indian ruling?
Am sure MSFT will be interested to fin out they owe the Indian Tax man somewhere between 600m and 3B
i know how easy address filtering is, that's not an issue of it being hard or easy. it's a matter of how it's done.
blocking a range, even if a place has multiple ranges, blocks everybody on that range, not just the person of whom you disapprove. you could block a whole apartment complex, a whole library system, etc., etc. etc., just because you disapprove of the posts of someone who could very easily just go next door to the bank, bar, coffee shop, barber shop, at+t store, hamburger place, grocery store, or state/county office and start posting from there. the city of hillsboro has city-wide wifi.
it's just an over reaction, not a real solution.
It's not that difficult (address filtering), and I also doubt those corporations use but a single ip range to relay all wifi communication. I say Nuke em' from orbit - it's the only way to be sure!
