Good news after good news. I'm speechless why this thing doesn't move. Maybe a stronger buyback and pay all debts?
Makes sense. So they're going to keep going all the way back, probably another decade. Thanks.
Can someone be nice enough to translate this for me and possibly some others on these boards. I take it the 131 crore isn't the worst-case scenario, right? Thanks in advance.
Would like to get into my first IPO. Looking at the technology sector. Any particular one catch your eye, and why? Thanks in advance.
That was a while ago, not surprised if they gave up on it. Haven't heard anything about it since.
Didn't we make a deal with all Chinese manufacturers already? Nokia agreed not to increase fees in exchange for China voting yes for the Microsoft/Nokia deal.
clcellve, great piece. All I have to say is that Suri may be an engineer at heart, but he has others to do the marketing and innovation for him. Suri just pulls the trigger. But maybe what you were really trying to say is that Suri decides how much R&D focus should go into the company. Well, he has been with the company for some time, so he has seen Nokia go from a dynasty to a company close to bankruptcy. So, in my opinion, he has a better feel than us in regards to what direction take. In conclusion, anyone/everyone including teachers, scientists, Presidents, and even engineers know that Nokia's innovations are what put them on the map.
I believe in Siri. He has some plan. Maybe he knows it'll come down some more?
A dividend should have never been given out. Loyal Nokia longs would have benefited more from more buybacks. Anyone expect an announcement of dividend/buyback for next year soon?
Continued: a dangerous man and he knows what he is doing. Many should fear this new Nokia and as far as PPS goes... getting it where we all know it belongs will be his masterpiece.
Being around different Nokia-opinion sites the past two weeks, I heard many theories on what the surprise product is going to be. I really wanted it to be innovative/new, but I believe Rajeev Suri did one better. He found loop holes and wasn't afraid to jump through them. Essentially, he brought back Nokia in a big way, the way it should have been... with Android. Want the frosting on the cake? Little downside/Big Upside for Nokia. Now, let me quickly admit I do not know if Nokia gets royalties, but I do know they get money out of it any way you look at it. Not only that, they have preserved their brand for the future. Now why am I so excited about just a tablet? I'm not. I'm excited about a tablet, a smartphone and anything else a third party makes with Nokia's name on it. Let's address the criticis:
"Quality of new Nokia products will suck"
Yes and no. It will take a minor hit, but won't suck. Think about the masses and anything Samsung has released. The quality is horrible, yet.... people still buy them. Why? Brand recognition/it's what your neighbor has. First off, Nokia is working with third parties to set their standards as much as possible. Second, ask yourself, how many people outside these boards know about Microsoft purchasing Nokia device division, then renaming it "Windows Phone" yada yada yada. Not too many. So they will assume it's the same Nokia/quality (over time they will notice a hit in quality, but by that time they will be hooked.) By the same token, many will think Nokia has the Windows OS. But with a little time and by simply turning on the tablet, they will come to the conclusion, "Oh, Nokia uses Android, now"
To simplify, if two of the same tablets are side by side in the same electronics store in India with same description of specs, and one has the Huawei name (1/5th less expensive) and the other is Nokia, what do you think most people will choose? I bet 7 out of 10 reach for the Nokia.
In conclusion, Suri is
Thanks in advance.
I'm telling you, every time something big is about to come out, the stock moves down for some reason. I don't believe this to be coincidence, sorry.
Amen. I would give you ten thumbs up if I could. I love the design/sleekness (though not original), the name, the quality, the software. You did not see this with their phones. Though the thing was impossible to break, it lacked design/sleekness and the software... well, it wasn't Android....
They didn't just lend out the name, did they? It's their product, right? Profits and all?
I don't know about today. But if Nokia keeps release products to the consumer markets, they will buy. To simply put it: Nokia will look more interesting and attractive (as a stock) with devices they use regularly under their umbrella, now.
