Book value $3.80
you sell it at $3.15???
Last quarter the loss was mostly from restructuring.
The success of window phone is more important to MSFT, MSFT would give a great hand.
So far Microsoft has been unable to leverage the success of Windows on the desktop to grow their Windows Mobile/Windows Phone mobile os. And the way they're giving away all the potential killer features it looks like they're failing AGAIN.
Skype - MS owns is but is only now offering a non-beta version for WP. It's been available on the iPhone and Android for YEARS!
SkyDrive - I have it on my iPhone. Should have been kept as WP-only to compete with iCloud.
Mobile Office - it's coming to the iPad even before Windows 8 is released! And if they make it for the iPad, how long before it's on the iPhone as well?
If Microsoft is really serious about making WP a success, why are they giving away their killer features to the competition? That's NOT how you leverage your advantages and build a compelling ecosystem.
July 19th? Not sure what the means but moving on.
Now. AT&T has stated that the Lumia 900 has supplanted the Samsung Galaxy S2 as their #2 best seller. I don't have a breakout on AT&T S2 numbers. But Samsung has declared Galaxy SII shipments of 10 million after 5 months. So I don't think it's a over statement when I said that Lumia 900 sales on AT&T are "substantial".
The numbers have to be substantial. The 900 was #2 to iPhone and they beat out the Samsung S2 Galaxy which was #2 and putting up good numbers.
Demonstrating that those Amazon rankings we have been watching so closely in April were not disconnected from reality, Canaccord Genuity has confirmed the Nokia Lumia 900 was the best selling smartphone on AT&T after the iPhone, which has of course been taking around 70% of AT&T’s smartphone market.
The handset beat out the Samsung Galaxy S2, which of course has been one of AT&T’s best sellers next to the iPhone so far and now took 3rd position.
The news is pretty big, and has been the first sign of a Windows Phone handset actually getting traction in the US market. Now the only question which remains is whether the handset can withstand the onslaught of the HTC One X, to be released soon, but early signs are at least encouraging.
marketing? what marketing. if i did'nt have stock in NOK i would not know that they even had a smart phone.I live in a small town and could not buy one if I wanted to. all you here is apple.
you would not rule out the share buyback.
For 3 reasons:
#1, it's the best investment P&L wise
#2, the management is under enormous pressure to
shore up the stock
#3, the cash is there; the authorization is there
All the talk about stock buyback is pure nonsense. This is a standard clause that has been authorized for years that allows flexibility for various corporate finance activities. Elop has stated they will NOT be buying back stock. Please worry about something else.
In last several weeks, Nokia management has taken all the beating. They probably reviewed their business carefully to identify what's was the biggest bottleneck.
Product problem? NO.
Finance difficulty? NO.
The bottleneck is ................
It's a great sign to see Nokia launching aggressive campaign on Lumia 900.
NOBODY will spend too much money on a bad product; the reenfored marketing effort is a validation that Nokia's Lumia 900 is a great product after months testing in the market place!!!!
NOW with SIX FLAG!!!!
