Nokia has twice as many employees as Apple. What the hell are that many people doing?

Building and selling more than twice as many cell phones as Apple. Feature phones, unfortunately.

I'd say worrying about their jobs, at this point in time.

Larry Ellison should buy Nokia and Rimm and form Oracle Mobile Synergies. A Blackberry for every departing employee would be appropriate.

Speculative Buy: Nokia ( NOK). The other day, I logged into my DRIP (Dividend Reinvestment Plan) account for the first time in a while. I keep this one on auto-pilot in long-term heritage stocks so I choose to, for the most part, ignore it. I am glad, however, that I checked in.

I noticed that I have a small position in NOK, left over from 1999-2000. Thankfully, I sold a majority of the position back then, leaving me with only a few leftover shares.

This discovery coincided with NOK hitting my radar screen. I am an AT&T ( T) customer, who owns a Blackberry, but I am now eligible to upgrade one of my lines. I also just purchased a new Sony ( SNE) Vaio laptop. When it arrived, I realized I should have waited a few months for the release of Microsoft's ( MSFT) Windows 8.

It should be quite clear to most Windows' users that Microsoft has been "stealing," for want of a better word (maybe "borrowing?"), from Apple ( AAPL) for years.

I owned a Macbook several years ago, but gave it up and shifted back to a Windows laptop. It was incredibly frustrating to not be able to drag and drop as frequently and effectively on Windows as you could using a Mac. Fast forward to today and, at some level, there's little distinction between the two. Skip ahead to tomorrow and Windows 8 promises to make a splash with touchscreen features and inclusion not only on computers, but tablets and, possibly, smartphones.

All of this hype, much of it generated by Nokia's marketing campaign, caught my eye. Last weekend, I tried to upgrade to a Lumia, but they were sold out at AT&T. Yesterday, I had one in my cart, but thought twice about spending $142 to give my life away to AT&T for more than two more years.

No matter how it all shakes out, Nokia has something Research in Motion ( RIMM) does not in its battle for number three behind Apple and Android - a well-heeled, innovative backer that's coming back from hibernation at the right time. Between the two companies, Nokia represents the safer play, as its aggressive move into the smartphone market via Lumia appears to hold promise for the future. Nokia is not dead, despite its swooning stock price.

Now, I am not going all-in with NOK; instead, I will just send a $50 check to my DRIP each month. Given the price of the stock and the fact that Nokia, for now, pays a dividend, I should be able to accumulate a halfway decent size position over the next year or two as the stock continues to flounder and/or stay range-bound. NOK has long-term and highly speculative written all over it.

Clove UK Puts Nokia 808 PureView on Pre-order for $711

Posted by Shawn Ingram | 04/16/2012 | 0 Comments and 6 Reactions

Nokia recently started taking pre-orders for the 808 PureView, the Symbian phone with a 41MP camera. Today the phone is available for pre-order from Clove UK for anybody that wants to buy one, even Americans.

According to PhoneArena, Clove UK is now selling pre-orders for the Nokia 808 PureView for $711. The phone actually costs £449 excluding VAT, which is $711 in the US. That’s a bit cheaper than the $785 Nokia is charging for the smartphone. Of course, U.S. buyers still have to pay extra fees to import the phone.

Even with the pre-orders going up, we still don’t know when the Nokia 808 PureView will actually ship.

Current rumors say the 808 PureView will be available sometime in May. Since pre-orders just started, that seems like a safe bet.

If you’re tempted to buy and import the Nokia 808 PureView, remember that the camera is the only real selling point for the phone. The 41MP camera does take amazing photos, but everything else about the phone is mediocre at best.

The 808 PureView has a 4-inch nHD (640×360) display with Gorilla Glass, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 1400 mAh battery. Of course, there’s also Bluetooth, WiFi, and DLNA.

The biggest downside to the phone is that it runs on Symbian, the platform that Nokia abandoned for Windows Phone. The platform is still being developed, but Nokia won’t use it for much longer.

If you’re patient enough for a 41MP camera in a phone, you might want to wait for a Windows Phone with PureView. We’ve seen images of what those phones could look like, so we know that Nokia is working on it. We don’t know when Nokia will release such a phone, if ever, but it will likely be sometime after Windows Phone 8 Apollo.
