I would not agree with the statements what are posted here in this article: "Here's what makes the Booklet 3G different: It has an HDMI port for high def video out?it can't show HD on its 10-inch screen?an integrated Webcam and Nokia's Ovi software for location-based services and digital music. No one is going to buy the Booklet 3G for these features" Comment: May be one should look at the features what Nokia has integrated. Like long lasting battery life, 3G, Broad-band, etc, up to 1 GB application memory.. It all depends on what you see and how you see the object. "Goodbye, Nokia, and thanks for getting this whole cellphone thing going." Comment: I am not sure if it is correct to use the above statement! As a reputed source of information in industry, I would definately think before I write if I were in your shoes. If one as a individual think that the are walking on down-hill, how a market leader with billions of turnover think and act on that? Do they/can they accept it? "There is a old saying: The sea will remain calm before it brings a strom" !! Lets wait and watch the Game. May be you are correct but I thought of putting my opinion here.

The article didn't get the facts right, either. The article says "it can't show HD on its 10-inch screen," but Nokia's announced that the resolution of the screen is 1280x720, which is 720p.

Nice article Rick. But people (myself included) have been writing Nokia off for years and yet they remain #1. The Japanese didn't displace them, nor the Chinese. There is something about these Finns which makes them more reslient than you or I would expect.

What is the purpose of that article? I mean it's clear to anyone if the company has lack of ideas and needs to keep sale volume at least at the same level to not disappoint the shareholders it could make some crazy steps like discussed above. As a reader of EE Times and not shareholder of Nokia or even a consumer of its products I see no point in that article. Or better to say I see some similarities to what Nokia is doing and what some guys are writing. If there is no topics around why not to create one. Does this article say that Nokia makes mistakes and nobody else does? Or the thought the author wants me to explain?

And I didn't even mention that Nokia is getting out of custom chips just as Apple is getting into them. How do you say "oi vay" in Finn?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
