    When the Ozo launches in late 2015, it probably won't generate much meaningful revenue for Nokia. But if VR headsets prove popular and demand for VR cameras rises, Nokia could gain a first-mover advantage in that fledgling market. Looking further ahead, smaller and cheaper versions of the Ozo might even help Nokia take a bite out of GoPro's action camera market.

    When the $16.6 billion deal was announced in April, the companies said they hoped to close it by the first half of next year.

    “I have expectations we could close it earlier than later,” Combes said in an interview Friday during a brief trip to Silicon Valley. “Up till now we have had a very smooth journey"

    I believe the stock can touch $12 over the next two years. It might be sooner but I want to remain a bit cautious. Strong balance sheet, solid position in key areas as well as the focus on core business are some of the factors that I believe will push the stock price up over the next two years. Alcatel-Lucent is making solid progress and the combination of Nokia's LTE position with ALU's IP-networking will make it a preferred choice for the telecom companies. I expect Nokia to make serious progress over the next two years. Management has been spot on with the decisions and it proves the business is in the right hands.

    Gold, you have no business sense at all, why would Nokia give away anything to ALU stockholders? If anything happens soon than NOK stockholder will get the benefits of Here sale. Here is at least 3 to 4 billion as stand alone company. Over 1 billion in sales. Buy NOK and enjoy the ride.

    Geega, once again your facts are only part of the story, ALU has not been profitable in the past decade, revenue means nothing unless you make profit. ALU expense has been greater than profit therefore the stock is only $3.50. Assumptions on the future means just that. (Show me the money). When the cost of sales exceeds the profitability than the result is poor cash on hand and banks are reluctant to lend. Big and powerful company needs to show profit in order for the stock to rise. ALU did a great job on cutting expenses, but it has no place to go except to merge with NOK or someone else in order to survive. For years ALU business tried very hard to be profitable and they have an excellent product line, however French environment will never allow them to be very profitable (French unions and work labor rules). Soon this debate will be over and a combination of ALU/NOK will make the stockholders a lot of money. Hope for the best, good luck to all.

    Hahaha, I would love for your numbers to be partially correct, unfortunately I don't agree and the street does not see it. The stock is only worth what Nokia is paying for it. If your numbers were correct ALU stock would have been in the upper $7.00, however there is a reason why the stock is only $3.50 a share.
    Sell the stock or join Nokia and enjoy the ride, we are ready for a take off soon.

    Geega, stop being a fool and do your D and D, Of course every stockholder would love to make as much money as possible, however ALU has been losing billions of dollars every year for the past several years and they are lucky that Nokia is buying them out. A combination of the two companies will bring a lot of synergies and cost savings and about 35% of all contracts allowing ALU/NOK to be # 2 in the world after Erickson. ALU board of director and CEO approved the deal and also French government and NOK board of directors, waiting for NOK stockholders to vote in the near future. At this time NOK is making a lot of green and that is why .55 for each share of ALU.
    How can you compare an $7.00 stock to a $3.50 stock?
    By next year NOK stock will be over $10.00 and you will get your $1.00 for your ALU shares. Don't even think that Nokia shareholder will not approve the deal, and so will ALU.
    Good luck to all,

    Just so you know there are billions of shares on the market, so keep them. Nokia and ALU will be much stronger company and we all will make a bunch of Mullah.
    What would be the reason you don't like the deal?

    Agreed, Nokia Here will never get $8 billion for the mapping service. It's irrelevant how much they paid and how much they invested in the service. Nokia needs to sell Here and keep 20% stake and also keep the royalty fees coming for few years to recoup some of the money. This would be the best case scenario. I think NOK will keep Here for few more years or spin it off to the stockholders. The revenue is starting to go up and it might be a good time to keep it a bit longer,

    Your 5 shares means nothing, deal is done and approved by both board of directors, just waiting for Nokia shareholders to vote. ALU has not reported a green quarter in years, if they report green this quarter than it will be the first one in a long time.

    heretic has been bashing Nokia for a long time, if he was paying attention to the NOK stock he would have made a ton of money. Instead he was bashing the stock and watched it going from $2.50 to $8.50. Now it's good time to get in again, but of course he is to busy bashing, LOL.

  • All Windows 8.1 users will soon be able to tap into Nokia's free mapping and navigation app.
    Currently limited to Nokia's Lumia 2520 tablet, Here Maps for Windows 8.1 will land in Microsoft's online Windows Store over the coming days, Nokia said on Friday. Starting its new journey in North America and Europe, the app will be free to download for any PC or tablet owner running Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1.

    Like other mapping apps, Here Maps offers navigation and directions, points of interest, and satellite and 3D images of any location. Maps of entire countries can also be downloaded to use offline. But the Windows 8.1 version adds several improvements over its Windows Phone 8 predecessor, according to Nokia.

    The new app promises to be faster. Pages of cities load four times quicker than before, Nokia said, courtesy of rendering and optimization tweaks. In addition to using your finger to control the app on a touch screen, you can use your mouse and keyboard on a PC.

    The latest version also displays high-resolution satellite images to show roads, houses, and other areas in much greater detail. The app will keep track of your search and route history and sort your list of businesses and other places by distance or rating.

    Nokia didn't reveal a specific ETA for the new Here Maps app. Curious Windows 8.1 users wlll want to check the Windows Store over the next few days.

  • More great investments for future of Nokia,
    Indix, a Seattle startup that builds analytics software for retailers and brands, says it has raised an additional $15 million in venture-capital funding. The company’s tools are designed to track the wide range of products sold on the Internet, giving e-commerce managers the ability to monitor how well a product is selling, as well as pricing and availability at competitors. They can also track news and social-media chatter.
    Indix was founded in 2010 by Sanjay Parthasarathy, a 19-year Microsoft veteran who worked as a vice president overseeing the company’s effort to court developers, and later started a unit dedicated to investing in and supporting startups.
    “Every business — from those creating products, to those selling and helping sell products — has realized that in order to compete, they need deep product information that’s constantly up to date,” Parthasarathy said in a statement announcing the latest fundraising. In addition to the Seattle office, Indix has one in San Francisco and an engineering team in Chennai, India. Investors in the latest fundraising include Nokia Growth Partners, Nexus Venture Partners and Avalon Ventures. The company says it plans to use the cash to hire more data scientists and engineers as well as expand its sales and marketing efforts.
    The startup’s previous fundraising rounds totaled more than $15 million

  • Nokia Networks on Thursday showcased some of its new technologies in the mobile broadband segment at an event hosted by the company.
    According to the Finnish brand, the technologies showcased are aimed at empowering operators, in their journey of evolution, to effectively manage and monetise the surging mobile broadband growth.
    Some of the technologies include innovations in Telco Cloud (VoLTE/ VoWiFi), 5G, security solutions and predictive marketing.
    The Telco Cloud or VoLTE/ VoWiFi will enable an operator to provide operator-controlled voice over Wi-Fi networks which is especially useful in providing indoor coverage when LTE/ 2G/ 3G is not in place.
    Another technology showcased was the Nokia Mobile Guard, which has an analytics engine that "listens" and "analyses" the traffic for mobile broadband and searches for patterns that are consistent with malware behaviour. With this, operators will be able to ensure an efficient, and clean network with round-the-clock monitoring and automated actions in the advent of fraud by providing protection for all subscribers, independent of device type and irrespective of whether antivirus is installed.
    Arno Koch, head of business development, mobile broadband, Nokia Networks and Suresh Kalyanasundaram, senior specialist, technology and innovation research, Nokia Networks were present at the event.
