Its telling that while Apple is setting up chip design facilities to differentiate itself from the competition and protect itself from cloning, that Nokia has divested itself of its chip design business. This might be OK if Nokia's added value was in its 'software and services', but alas it does not stand above the competition in that area. So Nokia is trying to compete with phones that have no differentiation in their hardware and 'me too' software. It's going to be death by 1000 cuts...

What nokia needs to do is to concentrate on building a solid software platform for all their smart phones of the future. At the same time they should innovate and bring more models in the low cost markets where they have the strong sales all the time. It may be Android or may be windows but they should experiment with high end mobiles to have support for user preferred operating systems. Lot of work for software guys at nokia. come on guys ...

Nokia has its problem, many in fact. But its Finland HQ is not one of them. Where does this kind of drivel come from? But to business... Fewer models, better industrial design, bet on Android.

It seems Nokia fellows have other plans then what we all discuss here. They are focusing more on Symbian based sets and gaining US market back. No words about MeeGO based handset neither other options being highlighted here. Check out latest comments here " tinyurl.com/3ytsuu8 "

I happened to own the slimmest cell phone (Nokia 5310 Xpress) ever and I cannot find phones like that anymore. It was a marvel of engineering, excellent audio and had the first 1G Mem card. I would still use it if I did not break the charger connector (my bad). I think it is a matter of continuous innovation, and placement with carriers and with expansion of apps, but truly being a good phone is what would be needed with perhaps a good camera and GPS.. They do not need to have full smart phones, and I fail to understand the HQ suggestion. They can open labs here, or design centers but what does the HQ move bring you?

let start with the reason of the problem, why Nokia left behind? Coz of its lack to adapt on new market trend or lost of innovative R&D power, or stubborn high management? It seems fellows at Nokia picked the easiest. The fall of Nokia started with innovation lack at Europian SC companies. Many of them could not foresee/develop further than early 3G chips, its true global recession made it hard to do so but not impossible.Far east co.s used that chance to focus more on developments. Unfortunetelly Nokia didnt see that, kept all SC suppliers as NXP, ST, infineon. Thanks to Apple for its iphone to open up minds, but its not apple who is manufacturing them. Asia is the leader at production, yes perhaps US leads the SW and R&D but without Asian chip set its not possible to lead. Sybian is cool but iOS, webOS, Adroid are cooler. Nokia is unlikely to turn its face to Android, nor webOS. Their new CEO mentioned that its silly to use google based OS on a device what u tried hard to create. They are for sure not going to open their sources to society either. If there is something Nokia should do firstly, it should be focusing with all power on MeeGo. Moving HQ to US, well no way :), Fins are extremely proud with their company and will not let it to be american backed besides better marketing at US crucial. They lost many share at the market, should fight hard to grab it back.

Sorry Chanj, that rant wasn't directed at you. It wasn't obvious that the Leave a comment box I typed into was a reply to you. It was the only box to use (to paraphrase Placebo) because the proper comment box's 'Submit Comment' button remained grayed out. But still the Idea a very sucesfull company has to move to the country that gave us Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. Suprised more companies don't leave the U.S

Sounds to me like you've got a lot of this right.
