In the west coast, the remnants of manifest destiny are very deeply ingrained.
This comes across in their thinking that anybody else is stupid and cannot see that Fox con and not Apple is the one making the phones, and that NOK is the one that pioneered the industry and has loads of know how from manufacturing, design and development of IP, integration of new issues ( mapping well before Google) etc.
Fox Con will jump at the prospect to capture a more fair portion of the huge mark up that Apple has attained.
By now, in this world of no IP, anybody can marry the advantages of friendlier OS and coupled with the reputation that NOK still has, and come with a truly better connected portable multifaceted micro computer.
I cannot wait to get my hands on the new version of the 1020 that Verizon never made available.
That would be a God send.
Last night Charlie had a VR talk with a bunch of the California people. Half hour or so, and not a word about NOK.
It is baffling how they can hide their abusive monopolistic scheme and device tactics and the public buys their baloney.
They buried the best maps, have taken the IP of the internet of things without shame or trepidation.
What else are they withholding until they can implement their second rate alternatives. At least Apple has paid some royalties.
I recently run into Rachel Andueza in U pipe. What a singer. Then again, the same thing it is hard to get to her inspite of her fantastic voice. You have to do an specific search.
By the way the 925 tablet rendered her very well. I remember when they had blocked the videos.
I am well satisfied with my NOK devices even with all the traps that have been set against them.
However, Haidamus, confuses me. Why exclude the phone from connecting people?
I though the essence was the connected micro computer. Apple so much as demonstrated it with the ease of use of their os.
It is sad that MSFT abbdicted to Android instead of developing the easy to use os for the great devices NOK did put out. The great cameras, rugged, and coupled with great mapping.
It hard, to this day, to grasp why and for what they destroyed that great foundation in broad day light.
The only worse thing is to have to pay capital gain taxes to same fellows that have aided and abetted the destruction of a once fine fine company.
Good call on India's part.
What is the value of of a faded fad.
I have come to really like my well worn 928. It took Verizon three or four tries to deliver an un refurbished phone that has now work as well as a MSFT device could.
I would buy another NOK phone if one was available.
A while back, I bought into DOW thinking that ultralight vehicles(resins) and lithium powered EV would be hard to beat.
I was too far ahead of the game. It is coming though.
The od/even number of licenses has been in place in Santiago for years. It forced many people to have more than one car. Air pollution still a big problem and getting worse in spite of having prohibited the use of firewood etc.
I wonder, what the impact of a collapsed road infrastructure contributes with the endless traffic jams.
It is not whether NOK Execs could see the future of the internet of things and big data. It was and is whether the court systems would honor their IP or would allow it to be pirated, mimicked or simply used without penalty.
Why on earth would somebody like GE try to reinvent what was already there if not only to avoid the royalty stream?
Not only that alcoa is a straight smoke stack and NOK is a tech co that normally would command a much higher P/E. Must be the markets sense of the no value of IP in our court system.
So mkm is short NOK?
Now u and os have me confused. China is falling apart but their telecom is flourishing?
And further on India Vs China, what if most of the first population growth turn out to be like their tax operatives?
Maybe you addressed it, and I missed it,
There is the "exposure" of the silly ness of share buybacks that supposedly are taking place. NOK is not borrowing but using the proceeds from the MSFT. Big difference.
One could say that they paid too much for Here and wasted millions in the devices. However at the gate of BK all that became new money that has come in handy in the turbulence. They are in an unbeatable position in a market that has become hard on competitors.
The short attack has again been well over done.
Sad but true. What wasted opportunities.
However, the real truth is the travesty the IP and markets have become.
While NOK owned here there was no play. After the sale everybody shows interest.
It is transparent and pathetic.
Mir; Boy aren't u positive today.
Then they are all good observation, but u forgot to add their take on the Monarchies.
Cwhite, u should look at the Bloomberg article on the mayors benefiting from the volatility in the oil patch.
The demise of the world as the shorts propose, or would like to believe, or better yet want others to swallow is way out of line and its colluded propaganda should be a crime.
The world goes on. just got back from Chile, and in Santiago it was about impossible to drive. Millions of cars going everywhere at all hours. Even with modern toll freeways tunnels bridges and all it was slow.
You remind me of the professional naysayers that were saying that NOK would not be allowed to right size if they bought ALU.
Big article in El Mercurio today.
Rockwood is mentioned in poor light and worse yet the Chilean political class.
What these eager buffoons do not realize is that the Chile brand is what they endanger with their vendettas.
Ponce's wrongs are not fixed with new ones. Destroying sqm and its present opportunities is the wrong path.
Capturing the lithium market with a platform in place is the right way.
add o this the fact that sqm is diversification its sourcing entering into mining deals in Argentina under the Macri administration.
If Corfo comes to their senses and realizes that beyond Ponce the opportunities are great we will be firing in all cylinders into a rising market.
In a normal properly regulated market what you say might be true.
Then again the bear side should be based on poor results and not rumor mongering and staged runs.
The futures is the proper venue for speculative plays. The criminal justice is the proper venue for management that breaks the rules and steals from a public co..
Do you know if the radio/cellular relationship is the cure for poor signal in marginal service areas?
It would be game winner/changer in rural areas with poor coverage and particularly so on rough terrain.
