it is sad to watch Nokia going the path of Motorola. It has all the right ingredient to be back on track such as good brand name, great hardware but poor software and lost direction is to blame.

The problem with focusing on the low end is that the low end market is declining faster than expected, so it is a race against time. Worldwide, for every smartphone sold last year, two low end "feature phones" were sold. That's about a billion low end phones. But the annual growth rate for smartphones was over 61% last year, while feature phone sales declined by almost 3%. http://mobithinking.com/blog/2011-handset-and-smartphone-sales-big-picture

It is amazing how a wrong strategic decision on the OS (e.g. not adopting the Android) has such a disastrous effect...

It is difficult now for Nokia to return to Symbian platform. It would be a disastrous step if it does so. Nokia should keep its focus on the low end market to keep itself afloat while trying to establish itself as a smartphone player

The mobile phone technology is mostly now become accessible to many small companies. That is why the base models of the good old brands are not catching up in the market. I feel that good old brands need to price their base models at least 30 to 50% less than the small manufacturers to survive and throw them out of the market.The high end phones they need to focus much and include all possible comforts to make it successful.

With the partnership with Microsoft, Nokia will be able to slash a large chunk of software engineerings, targeting to save cost. It effectively increases profit margin. Layoff is a bad news to everyone. Nonetheless, it may help to save the company. However, what important is I am hoping Nokia would not lose its spirit. I hope they would keep the human technology spirit and continue leveraging it to bring a better Windows 7 phone to the market.

Nokia can improve symbian platform with latest features such touchscreen to compete with Android and iOS. Better not to partner with MicroSoft.

Nokia must take very stern action and with this it has chance to rebound to its lost glory. Nokia may provide very good example of fight back spirit of Finish giant.

We could have predicted this bottom. Whether there's a rise after it is harder to see.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
