Taiwanese telecommunications carrier Chunghwa Telecom has chosen Nokia Solutions and Networks as a supplier to its LTE network and has extended its existing contract with NSN as sole supplier of its island-wide HSPA+ network to further increase network capacity. Under the contract, NSN will implement an LTE radio access network with its Flexi Multiradio Base Stations and enable voice services for LTE smartphone users with its circuit-switched fallback (CSFB) technology, which allows an LTE handset to "fall back" to the 3G network to complete circuit-switched calls and SMS alongside LTE mobile broadband data services. The deal also includes network planning and optimisation, system integration, technical consultancy, and care services. The Operations Support System (OSS) will be based on NSN's cloud-ready NetAct platform.
Western countries have only technology innovation and therefore royalties to survive the Asian shift of wealth so would be even absurd to suggest Nokia would not win these lawsuits, really like it how they step up the pressure, making them pay lawyers to defend themselves left and right as they are in a tough financial situation and on top of that crooks that steal innovations cause they don't have any. Is Android as a whole at stake here, so no retreat my friend!
Keep the good work Sydney!, we are going to be under pressure for a few weeks just normal correction plus the royalties uncertainties for the time been.
I don't think there is anything wrong with the analysis, INTC would not be interested in developing custom chips but AMD would, also the cost to develop one with AMD is attractive to large companies, at least the price I suggested is what AMD is pitching to be, is def. trying to win costumers this way and it is, at least with the gaming boxes.
My point was that for AMD is a blessing, for INTC too much trouble if their costumers start asking for it. My only negative was I don't see anyone buying AMD to develop own chips, this does not make sense.
Intel does not feel they need to buy AMD at all and another company like Google makes no sense, developing an ARM chip from scratch would take if done with AMD for example 18 months development and about 30 million dollars, why buy AMD? An X86 about 2/3 years and 200/300 million dollars. These are figures estimated by AMD senior management in an interview this year.
Makes no sense to buy AMD for Google, etc, does however make sense to start developing their own chips as the cost for an ARM one for a large company is peanuts.
I don't think Intel wants to do that, be told what to do and tailor every customer chip but for AMD would be a blessing.
I am long but the investment brisk is very high, AMD is been outstrip of everything of value to maintain competiveness from fabs to headquarters to cash to increase debt. I always believed in AMD and now ARM has given finally a helping hand but this will take at least another year to see stock gains in my opinion.
yeah, nothing like Apple maps to go places without crashing around the corner in wrong way.
yeah, nothing like IOS in cars so car makers can make tons of money adding an overpriced Apple controlled system in the car where they would have no saying in advertising and profit sharing.
yeah, right, the only competition is Google and there is a reason why 9 out of 10 cars don't have it.
yeah, right, the automobile industry is like cable companies they wont let Apple or Google suck their potential profits.
yeah, right, Apple fan boys can install it aftermarket.
because you have to have a long term plan, 2-3-5 baggers are not made overnight or by selling every time a short term drop happens and that is what I look for. 10% drop is nothing on a long term plan, much less considering we where at $6 not so long ago.
Do your DD, I have even bought shares at $1.75 so you can say I am long and have a plan.
Trading currencies has more volatility than this stock...
Any day news regarding yes/no how much the dividend and quarterly earnings date announcement.
The stock is been very weak lately, very weak but overall has not dropped more than 40 cents witch is basically nothing. We need fear, we need weakness, we don't need the freagging India tax issue though but is what is creating the weakness, without the above we would not go higher as there is basically no short interest in the stock.
When I say very weak is probably me remembering last year how it went down for like 14 out of 15 days in a row to new lows at 1.60 and change. Fear is good at least for me, makes me realize we can make mistakes and need to be careful with our investments.
I wont sell, my remaining shares are still short term holdings till march/may so no point in giving up now but I don't see or expect anything positive in the next few months that can move the stock, witch is a good thing, not to expect anything.
Good luck with your purchase!.
they don't make anything.
They will soon start production after years of developing and testing copper wire telecommunications a landline wireless phones in a deal with AT&T and Verizon.
The company also has plans to deploy an army of phone booths across the US and Western Europe, there is a lot of money in it and no competition.
Bloomberg reported that Nokia is been working on the next generation of Fax Machines, witch so far Nokia has category denied any involvement to protect confidentiality.
Nokia is also working on the technologies of the future, these include a redesigned 2 Way Capable Pager to replace smartphones, new generation of walkie-talkies and baby monitors.
Is been rumored that McDonalds is working with Nokia to develop a new headset for drive-thru orders.
So this is just for starters.
well, I am following this stock very close, own only a few thousand shares, I can't see why this news could be negative, to the contrary is making emphasis on the future of ARM for servers and semi custom chips. This is good news for AMD, Intel is dropping the ball on every field they play, what an arrogant bunch, so much money and resources and cant win one market beyond old PCs.
AMD will shine again, when? I wish I knew how soon.
Nokia Cut to Hold From Buy by Societe Generale.
They just upgraded the stock? They are awful, running for the exits like they would do if they were at war.
These guys are a total joke, I bet you follow their advice, buy all the stocks when they say, sell when they say and in one year or two you are down to your last 10% of the original money invested.
This company is indeed a case to study, I was long, made 30-40% profit in half my shares in just a few days and the other half barely broke even the next day for waiting on earnings release. I been containing myself from buying now, the stock has broken every support possible and might not be the case but I see it eventually at $6, even lower if growth does not come back and keep losing money. Is just a wait and see company for now, no one wants to hold this, is dead money, reason why keeps going lower. $6 is $2 and change more to go, I think is either a buy at $6 or back over $11 if things improve. The Flash Karma is claiming another victim.
This could be very good for Nokia Here and future royalties licensing, Microsoft giving the software free to OEM's would mean really price free, lawsuits free, liability free, not like Android witch is in legal limbo, licenses are being paid per device sold and more lawsuits in the pipeline with no end in sight.
Could this really stop Google? I think it has a huge chance if Microsoft does play it very aggressively it can shrink Android's market share faster than it rose to dominance.
So how about this:
A heavy customized Android OS for low price Asha line that includes:
Nokia Here Maps
Bing Default Search Engine.
Nokia or in this case Microsoft Store, just like Amazon.
Google software would be limited to You Tube.
This would be beneficial to Nokia for sure and to some extent even Microsoft. Of course Google does not like to see their OS customized to the point that forced and has signed agreements with ODM's in Asia where these companies are BANNED to produce customized Android OS phones where Google software is not included but in this case Nokia/Microsoft would have their own factories so nothing Google can do. Would Microsoft be willing to play this type of game?
If u just read yahoo finance news under Nokia, The new Asha line with a tailored Android OS ala Amazon, with Here maps, etc is now being confirmed by Tom Warren who has pretty good Microsoft inside info. The only thing regrettable is an early release of this phone using Android would have put pressure in Microsoft to pay more for the handset division. The project indeed exists, with hundreds of developers hired by Nokia in China, not sure it will ever go into production but Nokia technically needs to keep plan B in place till the deal is finalized.
Yeah, look it at this way:
The French ARREST( tourists and do a big show about it ) with fake Luis Vuitton purses or Lacoste apparel, teaching them a lesson is counterfeiting and intellectual property and this frog now is yelling to Nokia to be careful to enforce what is theirs??
Only the French!..
good, is just a confirmation of how powerful the patents are and how the frenchy are too, they will likely "surrender" against Nokia patents very soon.
just wondering, where is the west coast of Brazil?
