Love it! ZDNet is showing that Ford is replacing it's old Blackberry fleet with iPhones over 2 years....the useless windoze phone never even got looked at.
Sentiment: Strong Sell

she has no nokia position, no life, and just posts for board attention..

I also made a bundle on Nokia was impatient at one point but I know Nokia will do very well in the future.Apple took years to accelerate.Takes time for companies to turn around especially when on the verge of going under.under. Realx you will live longer
It's already rewarded me quite handsomely. Given that, you must ask yourself, with all that good news out there, why have we gone nowhere in nine months.
nysexx are you a shareholder if you are sit back and relax Nokia will reward you if not go haunt another board
It's good to see you finally dropping the whole shareholder charade - no one believed you anyway....
Hey gig, why don't you tell how you got $30 by 2018? I wan to learn how to analyze a company and its stock price. Thanks in advance, idiot.
This is a good time to be long, if the price goes low Nokia is able to remove more shares, hopefully they keep buying up to the 8.18 average which would make this an incredibly stable investment. after this buy back I know Nokia will propose another buyback using some of their big bank wad. Fact is at the beginning of 2004 Nokia had 4.796 billion shares outstanding, 10 years later we now have over a billion less.
I think I'm going to look into buying these assets and producing a special line of smartphones. People don't realize this, but modern smartphones are not--at all--responsive to hoof-taps. I see a big market opportunity. Maybe I can get Corning to make Sheep-Glass. Huge, ignored, market opportunity...
It's been 5m euros both days. Perhaps they are going to do that every day. As good a way as any - dollar cost averaging.

It's a long term play for Samsung that they have to make. Samsung Electronics has a huge capex budget because of its huge chip and LCD factories, but it is very profitable so it has minimal debt, $50+ billion in cash, and $25-$30+ billion a year in free cash flow. The natural progression is for them to move up the software stack and position themselves for any breaks in the marketplace. Luck, after all, favors the prepared mime.
The conventional wisdom is that Android is this unstoppable monolithic ecosystem, but it is actually very unstable because almost all the players in that ecosystem are losing money and will lose even more money later this year when Apple takes meaningful market share away from Samsung and forces Samsung to grab volume from the other Android manufacturers.
All that is going on too on top of the major fault line that runs straight through the heart of the huge Chinese market (400+ million devices this year). 90+% of that market is dominated by the homegrown hybrid version of open source Android (Linux) plus Chinese apps and services. It is a Google-free zone that could easily be up for grabs if Oracle regains control of Java and/or China decides that they too want to control the mobile operating system and go up the software stack. China certainly wants everything else.
