The community perception of Microsoft Windows product may not have a +ve impact to Nokia. However, having spent a couple of hours in Microsoft store to play Lumia 710, I am impressed with the overall quality and the stability of the product. I can't wait to see Lumia 800 and Lumia 900. I believe the alliance of Nokia and Microsoft will have a chance in the smartphone market. Nonetheless, my concern is whether Nokia is able to come up a couple differentiators over the other Windows phone maker. Without them, Nokia is just like other players - HTC, Samsung, etc.

Nokia has only Lumia now - Mr Elop days are being counted. I do not think Nokia can recover.

Betting on Windows phone will dominate over the Windows phone from Samsung and HTC is too much of optimism for Nokia...it is too late now...Nokia needs a breakthrough which would make the company to turn around as it was done by Steve Jobs for Apple.

Windows Phone still can't help. This is damn worrying.

The same is true for RIM which is also going down fast - unable to respond to the market forces.

It is a telling comment that the analyst thinks that an Asian company could buy out Nokia. While I agree they probably could, the fact that no one else anywhere else probably would is a sad commentary on how the mobile phone industry has gone in less than 5 years. Motorola, largely credited with making cell phone technology a reality, is now part of Google. For Nokia Mobile phones(who really dominated the market for so long) to disappear into the bowels of another company would continue the object lesson - innovate or die! Easier said than done.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
