Stephen Elop describes 2011 Q1 solid despite 26% shares

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop describes the first quarter of 2011 solid and mentions that the Q2 of 2011 may be more challenging. Even despite the 26 percent shares, Elop is still confident but rumours suggest that even he knows that the shares now are a result of consumer disapproval.

The effects of the Japanese earthquakes will rise because Nokia plans to ship and announced the new devices in Q2, not all of the Nokia customers live in one continent. Parts can also leave from Japan. Compared to 41% this time last year, this hefty drop can turn out to be major for Nokia.


MeeGo, a choice for future Tablets

Nokia first mentioned that Symbian will still be in their minds but not as much as it was. MeeG0 still doesn’t have a device which leaves space to create Tablets but so does Windows OS. Elop doesn’t plan to initiate Tablets with Steven but it is a choice. Nokia hasn’t created a Tablet therefore it will take long to acheive that goal.

Nokia isn’t sure if Tablets is their thing, that’s why they are delaying but also testing out Tablets. Elop did mention that if Tablets are created, they may remain internal rather than external and internal. Another way to stop bad comments?


Apple turns into Nokia’s biggest rival over patent fight

Nokia charged Apple of breaching 10 patents therefore Nokia demanded royalties on the several iPhones sold which was first introduced in 2007. This happened in 2099 and since then, each of these are accusing each other non-stop. A lather, rinse and repeat sequence.

This time, Apple was accused of stealing technology but a judge in the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington said that Apple is free of charge at the moment but no final decision is to be seen anywhere. A spokeswoman for Finland based Nokia said:

While we don’t agree that there has been no violation, we’ll wait to see the details of the ruling before we decide on any next steps.


MeeGo Smart TV Working Group signs Intel, Nokia and others

MeeGo has many committed users but even though the future seems almost pitch black, the MeeGo Smart TV Working Group might just brighten it up with heavy light. Signed to meet twice a year, the next meeting is scheduled for the following month.

Have a look at what Nokia had to say:

“Qt is a leading application and UI framework for a wide range of platforms, including smart set-top-boxes and TVs,” said Dilip Kenchammana, head of Products, Home Media Segment, Nokia Qt Development Frameworks. “The MeeGo TV community project will deliver a world-class open-source Smart TV software platform, enabling developers, manufacturers and operators to create a differentiated, engaging end user experience that builds on the cross-platform power of Qt.”


Elop focuses on how Nokia won’t be bought, first WP7 scheduled for December

Microsoft signed a deal with Nokia mentioning that Nokia shall include their Windows OS on the upcoming smartphones. Right now, the main ambition for Elop is to focus on how Nokia won’t be bought due to current situations. The reasons why Elop says this is because:

1) “I’m not aware of a strategic interest that Microsoft would have in the rest of the business,”

2) “To the extent that a partnership has been formed around what they’re really interested in, then what would an acquisition bring other than a good year of anti-trust investigation, huge turmoil, delays”

3)”We’re right now, today, having people work on the first Windows Phone devices from Nokia. That work is already under way. If this was an acquisition scenario, that wouldn’t be possible,”

Another reason is because the first WP7 device in under way and supposed to be launched this December, stated Elop. This isn’t sure as Steve is saying that the first Microsoft device is scheduled for next year December, hopefully the Mayans are wrong for Steve’s sake.


Symbian devices to be announced at CTIA, media exclusive

Nokia was at the Mobile World Congress which was was held a month ago, this time, Nokia shall be announcing Symbian devices at the event but the devices are exclusive to US carriers. It was when Nokia said “We promised to sell millions more Symbian devices. Join us as we spotlight our latest solution for U.S. consumers”, it occurred to me that Windows Devices are once again classified as concept.

It’s best to first perfect the software probably under the table and then announce the deal so that customers can see that this new Windows Phone is really worth it, no glitches!


Nokia Statistics provide how mobile users use phones

I previously provided the high rate of handset usage where Cell C was the most used in South Africa. The figures were bad but this time, Nokia has provided the figures of the whole world rather than just each country. The results are amazing and very opportunistic for the producers.

The 46% population are very lucky as the more don’t have phones, the cheaper and affordable devices Nokia will produce for the. The media now has nore to write about it, the bad side is that it might be too much to write about.


Nokia rejects considered Tablet design of 2010

Nokia recently launched IdeasProject where the developers can input their app and software ideas to the Beta Lab. Due to the courtesy of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, they had published a design to the Finnish company for a tablet device given to them on the May 28th, 2010.

Unfortunately, 2010 means that this was probably such a Tablet that shall feature MeeGo. Even though this is old, this could have been the first MeeGo Tablet ever. As all of the Nokia manufactured devices, all of them have a 3.5mm headphone jack and so does this Tablet. The to be rejected MeeGo Tablet had either a 9″ or 10″ display, perfect for movies.


PayPal App for Nokia devices makes silent launch

PayPal for the Nokia devices made a silent approach today but it seems that it only went to the Ovi Store at France according N8 Users Blog. To speak the truth, Ovi Store is an online Store worldwide and no country has its own Store. Maybe, this is a leak that the N8 Users Blog unintentionally told the readers. Nokia at the moment can’t afford to build an online store for each of the countries at the moment.

A fact worth noticing is that this application is only available for the French Ovi Store users and not for the French Ovi Store meaning that only the French can use this application at the moment.


IdeasProject Nokia enables new apps suggestions

Nokia users often have suggestions to improve or develop a new application or software sometimes which takes time and is no kids play. This project has been re-launched today by the Nokia Beta Labs. Develop apps but preferably not software as Windows is the candidate in Nokia’s mind.


Your application might take a while as it will be classified as trial and pending to check if theres any hidden defect or virus. Before submitting the application developed or even developing, please read the About section to find out how things should perform.
