    ... or just some investors who has sold short NOK shares - it might cause a huge lose just now, even it was very profitable earlier ...

    Almost seems like Forbes has something against Nokia. First the trash review, and now this.

    Total FUD, not even worth discussing. The media just needed some kind of story to kick off 2013.

    These rumors have been flying around for quite a while. None of them have happened. I don't see a Nokiasoft in the near future.

    lets throw facts out there instead of predictions like this article does with no facts to back it up.

    -nokia stock is outperforming apple at the moment Apple, Nokia stock analysis: Nokia outperforming Apple by 60% | BGR

    -nokia's value is on the rise Is Nokia the Best Income Opportunity in the Tech Industry? - DailyFinance

    -For the short-term, Finnish mobile phone pioneer Nokia (NYSE: NOK) may seem to be at a standstill in terms of stock price, as it stays near $4 per share in recent days, but that shouldn’t deter prospective investors or discourage current stockholders. Shares of Nokia have shot up over 150%, rebounding from a several-year low of $1.63 – definitely a good sign for traders. What the company is doing – and planning to do – for the upcoming Nokia RT tablet and the Lumia line of smartphones also bodes well for the company’s long-term future and its foothold in the consumer electronics market.

    -noone knows the numbers yet, but the lumia line is worldwide, dominating in some markets over iphone and android. http://wmpoweruser.com/nokia-lumia-8...ggest-carrier/

    these are just a couple facts that i googled up that the author of that article couldnt be bothered to do. with all this recent news (all of it in december), nokia is on the upswing. they arent going anywhere regardless of what some biased blog authors hope for. one thing i do agree with is nokia doing more software. they have already begun doing it with the new lumia lines with their lumia exclusive apps. i think future lumia model releases will come with these apps plus others to further solidify the quality of their product.

    I think it just one of those Nokia Haters. That guy probably hasn't seen any Lumia Phones especially the 920....

    He is just predicting and he probably went off on this one. We should not pay attention to such articles. I think Nokia should come out saying that this is totally baseless. If ever, they wanted to sell the Mobility division, they wouldn't have came out with new Lumia phones.

    I agree. The mistake folks are making is they tend to look at Nokia from a pretty narrow view - their future is hitched upon the sales of the 920/820 in Europe and North America. Not so. Nokia is hedging their bets with entry level handsets like the 610 or 505 in burgeoning markets in Asia and Africa. Smart move. Unlike Apple, they are not handcuffing themselves.

    Not that I think or want Nokia to sell...But, in general terms it is best to sell when company valuation is high, not low. So the momentum Nokia has could be just as much a reason to sell as it is to not sell, as mentioned above.

    last year Apple had to decide what to do with the 100 BILLION dollars they had laying around in CASH. Yeah, Nokia didn't.

    Actually, Forbes has been involved in a long running vendetta against anything Microsoft for quite some time.

    Right now, Nokia is priced just above bankruptcy valuations. Nokia's valuation right now, is hardly at its high point, especially if you look at Nokia was capable of in the past.

    I think you misunderstood what Crystal_Planet was saying. Apple is 'handcuffing' themselves to one particular product line, the iPhone. If sales of the iPhone drop, Apple will lose a significant percentage of their revenue. However, if sales of Nokia's Lumia 920 and 820 were to drop, Nokia would still have the 610, 505, and Asha series phones to support revenue. Yes, the margins will not be as large, but profits are profits.

    No, I understand. What I'm saying is that it is ridiculous to assert that somehow Nokia is making better decisions than Apple. Apple is a huge money maker, Nokia will soon be sold to the highest bidder.

    yeah, all of that from the iPhone. Last time I checked, Apple also makes other things other than smartphones that contribute to their revenue stream. ITunes us kinda big too I think.

    So which is it? Is Apple handcuffing itself or are they brilliant for creating multiple income streams? You can't have it both ways.

    You were the one boasting about the wealth of Apple. I was just pointing out that there was more to their wealth than just phone sales. And yes, they are handcuffing themselves by not putting cheap handsets in the hands of emerging markets. In North America they reign supreme, but everywhere else not so much - a lot to do with the crazy margins built into their products.
