Video: Nokia Lumia 822 for Verizon review

| November 23, 2012 | 4 Replies

Here’s PhoneArena’s video review of the Nokia Lumia 822 for Verizon.

  • Feels well made but slippery
  • Decent compact device
  • Uncluttered, simple, interactive, easy to use UI
  • Small text look pixelated, not as sharp as 920 but other than that, internet browsing is pretty good
  • Flash not supported
  • Not the best keyboard we’ve seen, doesn’t take up the full size (Use the damn thing for a while first before commenting! I thought it was silly not to take up the whole space but this keyboard is amazingly quick, accurate and the autocorrect is top notch.)
  • What a crazy, crazy comment that when in portrait, the physically smaller keyboard is a ‘decent’ size because it fits side to side. DUUUUDE. The keyboard is even smaller in landscape. What the duck are you talking about? It’s not all about having a physically larger keyboard but a usable one.
  • Keyboard not too terribly bad. WRONG. This keyboard is awesome.
  • I’m done watching.

    Investment banks are well-known that they are foxy, so intelligent investors don´t usually listen to them. Intelligent investors do researches themselves, for example they read all the details in the companies´ earnings results (they don´t just watch economy news and listen to the media alone, or read articles only). They also consider the all-rounded strategy of the company, the insight of the company´s future and the value of the sum of parts of the company compared to the current stock price.
    Take my friend, Caleb Evans, for example, he is only 23 year old, but he has the ability to see the whole situation of the company and not just certain part of the company. He actually has made many people rich by 21% in just 5 days (Nokia share rose 21% in just 5 days!). The share is now still a buy according to him.
    Here what he has written:

    Short interest as of the end of October had been running at around 313 million shares on a base of 3.75 billion shares outstanding, or roughly 8%.
    This 8% is just the number in NYSE.
    November 20, in Helsinki, the short interest was over 10% (and this number was only counted with the investors with over 0,5% short interest, because the law in EU does not allow to give the names of investors with less than 0.5% short interest).
    Nokia´s 3.75 billion shares outstanding,
    covers both Helsinki and New York.
    In other words, the short interest in NOK has been around 20% on a base of 3.75 billion shares.
    This is a significant figure to note, because for example, shares of Apple have been short sold only about 0.5%, Samsung over 2% and other telecom companies about 4% in general.
    Therefore, the real short covering of NOK is still to come yet.
    Enjoy the ride!

      Nokia is now a good bargain buy and hold for the long term or medium term. Here are the reasons why:

      1. Nokia Siemens Networks is profitable and growing strongly (over 300 million euros profit in 3Q). Nokia and Siemens have decided to make it independent in these few years, therefore Nokia shareholders will have two companies´ shares in their hands, quite a good bonus.

      2. Navteq is profitable as well, and it is expanding its business as the world´s leading maps maker, with City Lens and Earthmine´s 3D mapping, Nokia will have a bigger slice of this pie yet.
      Right now, Navteq already has big clients such as Yahoo, Facebook, Amazon, Oracle and almost countless car companies.

      3. Nokia´s patent portfolio earns about 500 million euros a year.
      Samsung is paying Apple for intellectual property rights; HTC is paying Apple; Vringo is suing ZTE; Nokia is suing HTC; and APPLE IS PAYING NOKIA FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS!
      Thus, it is only a matter of time when Nokia will sue Google and Samsung, if they still don´t agree to pay Nokia for its patents.

      4. Nokia´s featurephone division is doing well with Asha phones

      5. The only 1 out of 5 Nokia´s business parts, which is not profitable, is smartphone business, but
      new Lumia generation looks promising.
      Lumia 920 has features like:
      Floating-lens PureView camera with optical image stabilization
      Wireless charging
      Super sensitive and bright screen that can be used with gloves or finger nails
      Premium GPS that can be used also without internet
      Augmented reality City Lens
      Free music with no ads
      Rich sound recording in vids
      Fastest screen on a smartphone

      Nokia also bought Scalado, the imaging technology firm in Sweden. Therefore, apart from NAVTEQ and NSN, Nokia is no doubt going big with PureView imaging technology. Some authors compare Nokia to Kodak, I think it is almost the opposite.
      Kodak was the old era and Nokia is starting the new evolution with smart-phone imaging, when consumers won´t have to carry another gadget (camera), for example during traveling.

      6. Considering now the total loss is about 17 million euros, it got much better from the 290 million (2 prior quarters each) loss.
      Nokia´s current 3.6 billion euros net cash should be enough for Nokia´s transitional period before WP8 phones take off.
      Nokia is also getting more cash from convertible bonds and selling its headquarters and other non-core assets.

      Morningstar´s analysis about Nokia:
      Share price assumption at this moment: 2.40 euro.
      Best scenario (if WP8 phones go well): the stock price will go to about 7.70 euro per share.
      Worst scenario: no bankruptcy, because Nokia would be sold in parts before that.
      Estimated price for this: intellectual properties over 1 euro per share; other business parts (smartphones, featurephones, NSN) at least over 1.50 euro per share.
      And NAVTEQ´s price not included (Nokia bought NAVTEQ with 5.7 billion euro). All in all, even in this case, Nokia share price would be at least over 2.50 euro, excluded NAVTEQ.
      In other words, the sum of parts of Nokia is worth much more than its market cap now, which means NOK share is right now heavily undervalued. Caleb Evans
