  • Pakistan says no to Nokia phones made in India

    Pak says no to Nokia phones made in Chennai April 19, 2007 18:21 IST Stretching its reservations on imports from India to multinational companies, Pakistan is understood to have informed mobile handset maker Nokia not to sell phones made in India in the Islamic nation. The reservations of Pakistan in receiving such mobile phones apparently were conveyed to Nokia through authorised cell phone distributors, who have asked the company not to ship Indian made handsets into Pakistan on the ground that consumers may not like it. The company, which has a facility near Chennai in south India, has accepted the...

    Around 1:00am August 11th three men purchased cell phones from the Wal-Mart store on M-81 near the corner of M-24 in Caro. Wal-Mart places a limit on the number of cell phones that can be purchased at once, that number is three. The three men allegedly bought 80 by purchasing them three at time so that an alert wouldn't be triggered by the cash register. They also paid cash. An alert clerk grew suspicious and called Tuscola County central dispatch. The Caro Police Department sent a unit and stopped the rented van on M-81 just east of Caro. The suspects...

    www.motorola.com and www.nokia.com are going head-to-head in the southern city of Madras, India. But, Nokia is throwing the bigger punches. Nokia announced plans to build a $150-million plant near Madras. Motorola countered with a plan to invest $100 million in a plant of its own. Where do these companies get all of this money? $150 mill, $100 mil, and yesterday Yahoo put up $60 mil to invest in South Korea. Could someone please drop a million near me, or invest in me? India is one of the fastest growing handset markets. Gee, I wonder what country is number one. Nokia...

    HELSINKI (Reuters) - Mobile handset giant Nokia (NOK1V.HE) sees the United States market as having importance out of proportion to its size in setting industry trends, its incoming chief executive said in remarks published on Friday. Success in the United States is more important than just the resulting revenues, said Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, who takes over from CEO Jorma Ollila in June, in an interview with Finnish weekly magazine Suomen Kuvalehti."The United States is especially important, because world trends originate there," he said."Many things spread elsewhere from there, rarely the other way round. If something succeeds in the United States, it...

    Nokia has begun shipping its Linux-based Nokia 770, the so-called "Internet tablet", according to the Finnish giant's direct-sales website.

The 770 is pitched at consumers who want to access the Internet for emailing and web browsing anywhere in their home.

To add to the confusion, the technically illegal Samsung E 700 is even advertised on a main thoroughfare in Jeddah. The authorities are reacting. Al-Yaum Arabic daily recently reported that a college student was expelled in the Eastern Province for taking pictures of her friends with her mobile phone camera on campus and distributing them via the Internet.

    A record number of cellular phones were sold last year by manufacturers, primarily due to people replacing their handsets with newer models and increased sales in emerging markets, a market research firm said. Worldwide shipments totaled 520 million units in 2003, a 20.5 percent increase over 2002 sales, Gartner Inc. said. Sales were so good, manufacturers struggled to meet demand. "This unprecedented demand is set to continue in 2004 with the first quarter already looking strong," Gartner analyst Ben Wood said in a statement. "We've increased our market estimate for 2004 to 580 million units." Nokia continued to hold the...

    Smartphone wars over, Symbian and MS both lost? By John Lettice in Cannes Posted: 01/03/2004 at 18:36 GMT 3GSM Events of the past few weeks have kind of undermined images of Symbian as the victor in the smartphone wars. Depending on how you look at it, last week at 3GSM the company was either staggering about with a dagger in its back, or David Levin was pointing a gun at his head and telling any shareholder who'd listen, "Buy more shares or the puppy gets it." Maybe a bit of both, but does it matter who wins/won? It's beginning to...

    NOKIA has given a sneak preview of its first truly mobile multimedia device — the 7700. Optimised for internet browsing over high-speed wireless networks, this remarkable gizmo features an integrated VGA still/video camera, a new "visual" FM radio service, an MP3 player, voice recorder and on-screen keyboard, along with full multimedia messaging and email capabilities. But that's not all. The 7700 packs MS Office applications plus personal organiser/calendar functions, so it may be possible to persuade the boss (or the taxman) that it is an essential work tool. Certainly, it will be one of next year's hottest toys for cashed-up...

    EXCERPT: The tale of how Motorola Inc. fell victim to one of history's bigger financial frauds--an alleged $2.5 billion swindle by a powerful Turkish family--is set to unfold in painful detail in a federal courtroom this week. Yet even a clear legal victory in its lawsuit wouldn't spare Motorola the embarrassing question of how it came to lend more than $1.8 billion to a family that it now alleges has a history of defrauding investors and using Turkish courts to elude prosecution. The story of Motorola's massive losses--they were written off months ago--to the billionaire Uzan family is a cautionary...

The claim is that Microsoft will mutate the handset market so that it resembles the PC industry where margins on hardware are minute while software margins stay high. Apparently there's a danger that Microsoft could help to commoditise the handset market. Eh? Global handset sales are already around 400 million units compared to 120 million at most for PC sales. Which is the commodity?...
