ATI, Nokia and Bitboys
Nokia doesn’t want to invest capital in their partnerships if somehow possible. This means tough times for their collaborators. They need to carry the risks and find resources, Nokia provides orders but that’s it. Bitboys didn’t have deep enough pockets, and therefore outside investor was needed. Now the support is there, money is abundant and resources adequate. ATI and Nokia will continue, but Bitboys will disappear into history.

Nokia rises from ashes
Business world has been full of analysis and news about Nokia’s new rise. Their higher end mobile phones have gotten buyers attention and everything is well again. Nokia’s features are the key that attracts buyers. It still isn’t the innovative and sexy design, but I am so much hoping for that day to come again.
Anyhow, now Nokia has grasped the momentum again. N-series is a solid base on which to build on, and new theme variations are published frequently (if not hampered by software issues). This year will see Nokia going from strength to strength, I just still hope that their new design team will get more juice into their handsets.

Nokia's mobile TV projections
Frank Nuovo leaves Nokia
Luckily Nokia has very stable protocols on place. Old managers breed old ideas, it is about time to get new blood into the company and steer away from that traditional Nokia "our phones look like popsicles" design.
Mr. Nuovo is exactly the right person to develop the Vertu brand as there it is not important to create new ideas but to produce elegant beauty, which Mr. Nuovo can create.
For now Mad Dog is only running on Nokia mobile phones, but expect it to take on the world like a virus.

Nokia Flagship Stores
WHAT'S UP WITH NOKIA?
To me this looks like extravagant start for Nokia’s goal to improve their channel and customer relations. This way Nokia can create high-end image for their products in selected markets. It is not about sales volume but voyeurism. Soon we will have those paparazzi pictures showing some celebrities walking out from Nokia Store and tabloids will scream – XXXXX $ VERTU BOUGHT BY... Offering outstanding customer service for selected few is an excellent approach to PR. Answer me this – what is N-Gage Arena doing in this palette? Read the complete press release here.

Is Nokia leaving India?
Nokia and Foxconn
Nokia in global politics
To ease this tense situation in international politics, Jorma Ollila has been assuring that Nokia will not do any drastic relocation moves between these two countries. I suppose it means that Nokia’s capital spending is going to grow, because they have to invest heavily in both countries. Read more here.
Nokia aims for stronger channel and customer relationship
Nokia brings video tone
Personally I think that animations and demos will be very popular. This will also be good market crack for companies. They can offer short mobile video advertising clips for free. Consumer would then promote company in surprising situations. Let’s have a term for these products, what about Movi (mobile video) and Moviad (mobile video ad) or what about Mad (mobile ad)?

Nokia's Kallasvuo talks stock price up
It was very interesting to notice that Nokia thinks that there will be over three billion mobile phone users by 2008 already. This growth has mostly come from developing markets in India, China, Russia and Brazil. Nokia has been doing exceptionally well on these markets.
Kallasvuo also expects Nokia to increase its market share during the coming year. New phenomenon on mobile market is the death of smaller mobile terminal manufacturers. According to Kallasvuo, it is imperative that companies gain the critical mass, in order to gain benefits of the scale. Companies with less than 15 percent market share will find it increasingly difficult to operate on the mobile market. Therefore three names seem to rise above others – Nokia, Motorola and Samsung.
