.......with the sale of the mobile unit, Nokia will not have the resources it will need to continue with its Android efforts.
Nokia has now, instead, decided to focus on nascent technologies in the field of wearable computing, such as smartglasses, flexible displays, wireless power transmission and electromagnetic energy generation.
The upcoming line of Google Glass-like smartglass is still under development. The company has already developed eye-control technology for this device and will launch it in 2015. There was no word on the development of other upcoming technologies.
Hey Ronov...what did your friend ever find out? Or was he taken hostage after coming within 100 meters of the factory?
Kind of sounds like the same route taken annually by a certain jolly ol' elf. :-)
"In networks, previous disruptor Huawei is now rational on pricing, opportunities exist for many years and margins are solid. NOK wants to lay out a longer term roadmap but this can’t occur before a permanent CEO is found. "
I believe 'networks' is referring to NSN.
and nothing mentioned about IP royalties. Great. If PT is 8 euro on back of NSN, what is the potential with balooning IP royalty payments?
Just do as f7 suggests and you can eventually become a member in good standing in the Nokia club. Just don't dump on Lee and stay away from politics and you'll be fine :-)

Shares of Ericsson (ERIC) hardly reacted to the news late last week that the Competition Commission of India (CCI) will investigate the company under the Indian Competition Act. CCI said that it would conduct a detailed probe into the allegations by Micromax against Ericsson
The investigation probe is related to the patent infringement suit filed by Ericsson against Micromax in Mar 2013. In response, Micromax had also filed a general defense case against Ericsson, alleging the latter of charging ‘exorbitant royalty rates.’
Apparently a "market-friendly" opposition party is having a good showing in state elections in India. Rupee and markets all up. Current regime running scared?
"The Bank of New York index of ADRs rose 0.05% to 147.82. The Asian index was down 0.26% to 148.26 and the emerging-markets index added 0.46% to 278.17. Indian stocks closed at record highs and the rupee reached a four-month high after a strong showing in state polls by the country's main opposition party spurred hopes for a market-friendly shift in the capital."
"the important lesson to learn from this is that companies colluding to bring patent prices and license fees down -- in this case, three leading Android device makers (which indirectly includes Google itself because it owns and controls Motorola) -- can be accused of and sued for antitrust violations."
The decisions against Samsung keep piling up. The courts are completely #$%$ off (mad) at Samsung for violating the gag order on the confidential Apple/Nokia license terms. Here they were caught trying to strongarm an alledged patent troll and got caught. Imagine what their chances are aginst a legitimate patent owner like Nokia. I smell a license settlement with Nokia at North of 1%. Sweet.
