Re: Pocket Calculator Pricing
Yup. Nokia's N1 is apparently going to be made by Foxconn... and it looks like an iPad clone, running Android... so Nokia is in the consumer devices market... and it's probably only a matter of time before it gets back into phablets and... phones.

Re: Pocket Calculator Pricing
Now it's amusing to look back at yesterday's coverage of the 'Nokia device', to see the guesswork.

SO now there is a Nokia consumer device heading back to the shops, but it is no more than a licensing deal. Very inteersting approach - Nokia does not make it, or sell, it, or even support it. That is all done by the OEM partner.

Re: Pocket Calculator Pricing
Nokia sold its phone devices to MSFT... not all of its hardware.. In fact, Nokia seems to be launching an OTT set top box?

Pocket Calculator Pricing
The issue for device makers, especially formerly high end ones, is that we're entering a time when $100 computers with networking are possibly the norm.  

And I also believe there's an inverse law based on network bandwidth.  As these new networks climb higher in bandwidth, we get to the point where the Chromecast topology -- of hosting everything cloud-side -- becomes the norm.    

Things like devices get more pervasive, and more powerful in some sense, but, paradoxically, cheaper and lighter because they have to do less.

Perspective for Nokia
So there may be some re-assessment of the share price but the perspective needed is - where is Nokia compared with 1 or 2 years ago? IN a m uch better place.

How is it shaping up for the future? It now needs to turn the internal focus and drive that turned it around to the market, where it needs to fill in some gaping holes, one of which looks to have been partly addressed by the relationship with HP on cloud/open source
