Nokia Networks isn’t being left behind as T-Mobile starts the latest phase of its 4G network rollout. The Finnish mobile equipment maker announced today that it has scored the other half of the contract to expand T-Mobile’s LTE systems into the PCS and 700 MHz bands and bring the country’s No. 4 carrier into rural areas it had long neglected.
that's where the future contracts and growth will be, looks like nokia has developed a good rep / relationship with the Chinese government.
nokia already said those are msft's Mexican liabilities, and msft said they already paid them off to the sum of $4200 to like 12 people
The question now is, can Suri and management make Nokia really great again.
BlackRock, an asset-management company that is the world’s biggest investor. Founded in 1988, it has $4.1 trillion in assets under management...if I was a short trying to game this stock, it may well be time to move on, these guys have DEEP pockets

yah,valuations placed on AT/IP and HERE still unrealistically low, but its reassuring to know that just NSN alone is able to support the $12 valuation target. Perhaps that's a good thing that expectations are still so low for Nokia's other business lines.
So HERE is becoming more competitive and more wide spread, with Msft, and Samsung now on board, it would appear to have achieved critical mass.

Samsung is slowly but surely severing ties with Google, and the company’s latest move had it signing up Nokia’s Here Maps for its Gear smartwatch and Galaxy smartphones. The application is being made available for Tizen devices and since the upcoming Samsung Gear S is the only wearable from the brand with a GPS chip, it will only work with this one as far as we know for now.
The beta version of Nokia Here Maps for Samsung Galaxy handsets will also be rolled out for free in early October, coinciding with the date on which the aforesaid smartwatch will be launched. As we’ve known for some time, Samsung is gearing up to become independent of Google even though it announced an Android Wear device for 2014.
Nokia Here Maps Samsung Gear
Since Samsung owes a big part of its success to Android and continues to earn profits from its products running on Google’s mobile OS, it’s easy to see why the company is taking it slow. But this new move to incorporate Nokia’s Here Maps into its Tizen and Android offerings cannot be disguised as anything but an open snub against the Mountain View giant.

Nokia Here Maps will power an app dubbed Navigator on Samsung’s Gear S. This is designed to deliver turn-by-turn navigation for pedestrians as well as public transit routing. While it can work as a standalone software and allows people to store data on the smartwatch for offline use, the developers say that it may be paired with Here beta for Galaxy smartphones.
The news report says Here maps will be in all Samsung's android phones as well as the gear items.
Do we know how much Nokia will be receiving in royalties per phone from Samsung for Here maps? I wonder if its part of their comprehensive new IP licensing deal.
