    Guess Europe doesn't like it. Hate to say it but I hope it opens low in the states so I can get some under $7.

  • Nokia receives decision in patent license arbitration with Samsung - positive financial impact for Nokia Technologies

    Nokia expects to receive at least approximately EUR 1.3 billion of cash during years 2016 - 2018 related to its settled and ongoing arbitrations in Nokia Technologies, including this award. Nokia has also earlier received some related prepayments.

    Good either way highbridge. Nokia is a great long-term investment. Samsung arbitration results will show in 2Q earnings. The dividend is coming. Synergistic savings are coming. Licensing will reach much higher levels. I will wait before buying anymore shares. I have plenty for my next 5 year timeline. If they get good money from Samsung then Apple and the new boy in town, Huwaie "licking my chops for this one as global mobile devices rose huge this year" will reward Nokia as licensing agreements come out, I will add more.

    GL Longs.

  • Apple's bottom line with patents is, and will forever reamin, negative. Apple settled with Ericsson a short while ago and is presumably going to pay billions of dollars for its extended license. Apple will continue to be a net payer vis-à-vis Nokia.

    Apple has settled with everyone, even Ericsson, a case in which I think Apple could have made some great defensive headway that would have had a major positive impact on the situation surrounding standard-essential patents. Apple should also get out of this thing here now.

    I have disagreed with both Apple and Samsung on their offensive cases and agreed with them on their key positions as defendants. In Samsung's case I took a critical position right away because its pursuit of injunctive relief over SEPs had me concerned; in Apple's case I used to be somewhat sympathetic for a while but the longer it took and the more apparent the shortcomings of Apple's patents as well as Apple's positions on remedies became, the more I spoke out in favor of the defendant's positions--as I do in connection with Ericsson v. Apple.

    Line them up. Nokia is ready to knock them down.

  • Nokia, Bell Labs, Lucent, Alcatel, parts of Siemens, Panasonic, Motorola, and many others are now united under the new Nokia. Can you imagine what power this gives Nokia now. Just think about it and the direction Nokia is taking with it. New technologies are being released and more are coming out of the pipe works. Exciting times.

    NEW DELHI: Finnish telecom gear maker Nokia has pipped arch rival Ericsson to secure a three-year 4G network deployment contract from India's second largest telecom operator Vodafone for three of its most lucrative circles, a person familiar with the matter told ET.

    "These three circles are new wins for Nokia, where Ericsson deployed older technology network for Vodafone India. Nokia will initially deploy limited 4G sites in these circles," the person said, requesting anonymity. Mumbai and Kolkata circles are part of Vodafone's first phase 4G launch while the Punjab circle will see future deployment by Nokia that will support 2G to 4G technologies, as per Vodafone's strategy.

    Vodafone had acquired liberalized spectrum in the 1800 MHz band in Punjab in the February 2014 auctions. It offers only 2G services in the Punjab circle, while 3G services are being offered in an agreement with Idea Cellular.

    Currently, Nokia manages a majority of telecom circles of Vodafone India in the country, and also possesses the largest share of their 3G networks in the country, the person said.
    Vodafone, which has already launched services in select towns of Kerala and Karnataka circles, will increase the intensity of its 4G rollout covering important metros - Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Kolkata before March 2016, under the first phase of 4G launch in India.

    Vodafone has launched 4G high-speed data services on the 1800 MHz band using the FDD-LTE technology, and is also looking at improving the 3G experience for its customers in these circles.

    I've been keeping an eye on Nokia for a bit now and believe this is the time to add to my share count. The ALU integration was handled very well. This was the only thing I had questions about. I think we have enough investors to back us up now.

    By the way, I've seen the OZO at the end of a few NFL football games.

    In todays world people want it done now, today. They have no patience. The typical message board poster has this mentality. He cannot see that a company needs growth and sustainability. They lack the ability to see the developing potential. Be it a foolish belief that they can time the market, trying to turn a quick buck or stuck on financial numbers, they can't seem to understand that a company like Nokia takes steps to insure strength by nurturing its endeavors and keeping its platform stable for years to come.

    Success is in taking the steps to bear the fruits of your labor. I see this in Nokia. It's like the parts of a well oiled machine have had the oil added to them and the ignition is about to light up.

    PART 2

    Innovation with practical applications is key. For example, connecting homes to nearby fiber with Nokia Networks’ just launched 5G-ready massive broadband solution represents the first concrete step towards realizing some of the 5G benefits already in 2017. Our holistic programmable 5G multi-service architecture, provides a clear view on what type of network architecture is needed for future use cases, including not only people but mission-critical machine communications, and machine-to-machine connections for enhanced Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

    5G will open up a realm of new possibilities for consumers, the economy and society as a whole. It will allow for massive traffic growth (peak data rate higher than 10 Gbps compared to the 300 Mbps LTE) with virtually zero latency and an explosive growth of the devices. It will also integrate pre-existing technologies, while lowering energy consumption. Future applications and industries such as innovative health care services and self-driving cars will transform the business of most industries with fully automated and self-organizing production processes.

    The European mobile industry has a strong track record in innovation and developing new services but is currently lagging behind other developed markets in next-generation networks. A sustainable 5G ecosystem is necessary to help push Europe back to the forefront of the global mobile industry again.

  • PART 1

    There was a clear sense of urgency at last week’s 29th annual Telecoms Summit in Santander (Encuentro de las Telecomunicaciones), Spain’s biggest industry draw. As this year’s focus was on Strategies for the Digital Single Market, the Summit was a resounding 5G wake-up call for Europe.

    It provided us the opportunity to highlight the future of the European mobile industry and the critical role 5G could play in a truly digital society with a ubiquitous, high speed communications infrastructure to connect both people and things.

    5G is the platform that will enable the growth of many industries, but can especially help propel Europe to the forefront of the global mobile industry. But 5G needs a foundation in the network: without 4G, 5G will not be feasible. Therefore, 4G infrastructure is crucial when we want to lead in the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) with IoT. In other words, this is a wake-up call for those areas without 4G coverage in Europe as they will be the 5G white spots of the future and many 5G use cases will not be possible without seamless geographic coverage.

    Operators and vendors, including Nokia Networks, are taking revolutionary steps in driving 5G research and standardization. Collaboration on an industry-wide scale together with policy makers is essential to accelerate the deployment of 4G and 5G development in order to be 5G launch ready by 2020. The message to Europe’s capitals was clear: we need to improve investment conditions now! Other markets are meanwhile making rapid gains, and seriously challenging Europe’s innovator position. Europe’s targets must therefore be ambitious, so that’s why Nokia proposes to make a big bang by having the first commercial full spec 5G roll-out in connection with the European football championship in 2020. Nokia is also willing to champion this initiative as one of the key partners for this launch.

    Nokia's 360* camera will be awesome

    I hope Nokia produces that sub $1,000 unit that will fly once every home owns a VR headset. 95% of consumers pro or otherwise shouldn't have a problem without "real-time". So is this the big hang-up for hadi.....? Just render your image over the "Nokia VR Cloud Service" and get your video in a fraction of the time. Hope Hadi is listening. I just think the lack of headsets available is the real holdup at this time.

    It's all relative osmo. In no way will OZO be able to achieve the quality of RED. Though that is not the point. We are talking different things. Yet we can still figure some aspects from obtained facts. Without knowing exact specs but talk of this being a 5 figure instrument and because of it's size, we are limited almost to the point that we should assume OZO will be minimally 4K produced with a 1.4x cropped sensor. Any more and it does not justify a price tag over $20,000. Nor does a GPU exist that can render those specs in real time. So how many streams are really in real time at that amount of data?

    We will see were it all comes together next quarter. That said lesser specs will still create stunning captures and I have no doubt the experience will be amazing.

    But take a consumer version with 3 lenses at a micro one thirds format and you can produce real time much easier. This tech already exists. No components, its a single unit. I bet Nokia already has the prototype. The hard part is picking what color it will be.
