Nokia reportedly buying Siemen’s stake in NSN for 2.6 billion USD

Nokia reportedly buying Siemen’s stake in NSN for 2.6 billion USD

| June 30, 2013 | 51 Replies

  Someone went shopping this weekend. Nokia has apparently agreed to buy the Siemen’s 50% share of NSN for a reported 2.6 billion USD. How is Nokia going to afford this? With a bridge loan apparently. Perhaps Nokia are seeing more positive future potential in NSN. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-06-30/nokia-said-to-agree-to-buy-siemens-stake-in-nsn-networks-venture.html http://www.hs.fi/talous/Nokia+ostaa+Siemensin+osuuden+yhteisest%C3%A4+verkkoyhti%C3%B6st%C3%A4/a1372557521459 It’s an interesting result, given that some […]

WP 8.1 Swipe Down Notification List Unblurred – Jokes, its just an app!

| June 30, 2013 | 23 Replies

So we have seen that infamously blurry “leak” of WP 8.1 showing off new notifications. While there are some differences between the two, it does seem a bit too coincidental for my liking. The notification list is almost the same. Clearly, the dev could have implemented the version in the leak, and then changed it in order […]

Carl Zeiss becomes ZEISS, already branded PureView ZEISS on Nokia EOS/Lumia 1020

To keep things consistent, Carl Zeiss will now be just ZEISS. http://blogs.zeiss.com/photo/en/?p=4150 Janne notes that some of the EOS proto pics mentioned simply […]

Keeping with the theme of testing the newest smartphones against the 3310, here’s the SGSIV. It’s just for some light entertainment. It’s certainly making a lof of Sammy fans angry. It’s not actually a done deal that the 3310 always wins btw. I have seen one where it doesn’t. Funnily enough, there aren’t complaints there. […]
