    Nokia doesn't have just one business. That's what you're missing. You're also looking from a US perspective, a place that forgot Nokia even existed.

    If they do decide to try again they need to do it right and not be like the old Nokia. No one is expecting them to be Samsung or Apple but they could produce good phones that people will buy.

    Whether it happens or not is up to them but if they make something good people will buy it. Simply because it's Nokia.

    I'm looking at the phone business not the whole company . Anyways don't you wonder why most if not all phone OEMs target the us market ? It can either help make or break a phone . It's the same reason why MSFT wants to better itself in the us market .

    Most businesses look to the US because it's easy to do business there and make lots of money, so the old fable goes. Be successful in the US and you're the best, etc.

    Microsoft is a US company and that's always been their home. They've always catered to the US and they were out to make WP the next iPhone. People keep forgetting that. Everyone wants to be Apple and why not? Zombie customers. But to be successful you don't need to be Apple or Microsoft. You can be a phone OEM, sell to people in markets that know you and do well.

    When I talk about Nokia selling phones again I'm not thinking in terms of Apple success. That's why I keep saying they would have to be different than what they were. Simple combination of good hardware and Android OS to markets that know them and they could do well. Nokia is well liked in emerging markets and so is Android. Need I say more?

    In the US it's not changed in mentality for some time. You have to be the biggest and best to be considered successful. No you don't.

    Well today is a bit dull and cloudy but seems to be going fairly quickly, which is good.

    You don't need the US to do well. There's many many companies that do well that people in the US never heard of.

    Just because it's tech doesn't mean you have to do well in the US. It's not necessary. With the mindset of the populace in the US I probably would only release mid range phones there simply because you'll have a greater take up. With the EU and elsewhere you can do a range of different phones.

    However, I'm thinking of more along the lines that they create two phones designs, two sizes only, put different hardware in depending on the market. Simple and straightforward and cost effective.

    Saying that, I doubt that's what they'll do...

    Well, I was being sarcastic and I was assuming you were bored. Either that or you're imitating an electric razor...

    We had holiday today, not like it matters since I'm free all week but any way. It's the reformation day. We celebrate it because we received the first book written in Slovene language.
