    • The summer are here, September are at the corner. I can not wait for Xmas. NOK will definitely trade above $6.00 per share.
      That's all folks!

    • I agree with everything you've said but it's so hard to get excited when Nokia seems to find a way to screw up in a totally new way every quarter. I would love to see a blow out and am cautiously hopeful. We'll see in a few weeks!

    • I'd like to have some firm info that the supply issues are resolved. Maybe there never were any supply issues (this quarter), but Nokia does seem to be short some models, especially the 520 phones.

      Nokia shall rise again to number one. Long and will buy more !

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • add to that:

      Verizon advertising effort
      925 seems to have solved some of the form factor weaknesses of 920
      MSFT has plans to add 1080p to the next gen OS (albeit they are taking their time on that)
      Probable entry into tablet and phablet form factor

      unfortunately still have the negatives of ELOP at the helm and MSFT being the slowest moving least innovative participant in smartphones. but progress is progress... I would go as far as to say Nokia has done their part in the partnership with MSFT at this point and its really MSFT that needs to step up to the plate and improve their OS, engage in cross selling strategies (bundling) and find some sort of differentiating attribute to add to WP8. Nokia is adding more unique attributes (maps) than MSFT sadly.

      • I do like WP8 but still there are issues, google - Why Windows Phone 8 is strictly mediocre and why Microsoft should be worried, pretty big list with real things to improve. Hope to see many of them resolved in WP8.1.

      • Wow - you are way off - MSFT is the least innovative???? No one can touch Windows 8 for innovation - iOS is old and flat, Android is lousy (free, but lousy).

        Windows 8 IS the differentiating attribute. I doubt MSFT will bundle - what they'll do is get a section of Best Buy, put a large TV with W8 colorful live tiles on it, with PC;s, tablets, and phones all with W8 live tiles, and then they can demo games, Skydrive, Skype, Office, etc etc.

        All your stuff on all platforms, one user interface to learn.

        Not innovative? NO ONE ELSE CAN PROVIDE A COMPARABLE DISPLAY AT BEST BUY - NOT APPLE, NOT GOOGLE, NOT SAMSUNG.

        They can't do anywhere near what W8 can do, but you say W8 is not innovative, and lacks differentiation. Get real. You just look foolish when you say things like that.
