Despite recent stock surge, Nokia could be sliding on Palm-like downward spiral
posted by Victor H. / Dec 20, 2012, 9:26 AM
“Taking a look back historically, both Palm and Nokia saw significant upward moves in their stock price ahead of major device launches — Nokia ahead of the N8 (Symbian^3) launch in 2010 and Palm with the Pre in late Spring/Summer 2009,” Kvaal said. “In both cases, the stocks declined materially post launch.”
Kvaal also goes on to say the same could hold true for HTC and RIM. The analyst noted that it is unlikely for all three companies to be on the comeback.
HTC is expected to release a 5-inch 1080p monster phone early next year, but expectations of the analyst are that its success would only last for the short time before the Samsung Galaxy S IV launch. And when it comes to RIM, the challenge there is to sell BlackBerry 10 devices to more than just its traditional customers.
Do you agree with those opinions, or could Nokia, HTC and RIM finally be coming back?
Analyst from bgr? PASS!!!

HTC has to keep stepping it up. I'll be switching to Nokia once Sprint get them in 2013. Black berry might be a forth eco system. Nokia will continue to succeed and grow along with Windows Phone 8 / Windows 8 if Nokia make a tablet as well. Is apple losing shares in the stocks?

HTC seriously needs to advertise its phones, or else Samsung will kick its a** every time

HTC seriously needs to start innovating. The GALAXY Note II has the S-pen and all it's features which include S-Note, Air view, paper artist, multi window view. The GALAXY SIII has those features, minus the S-pen. The Droid DNA, well the screen is 1920*1080, and it looks appealing but other than that, nothing special. Same goes for the One X, which isn't getting any traction right now, as opposed to the SIII which is still one of the worlds most popular phones.

I bought Note 2 for its features. But not everyone wants those features. One positive about Android eco system is choices. HTC is a good choice when it comes to good looking UI (Subjective) and good design. If someone prefers that oer features, its understandable. People want their phone to look good. I too was confused, but Note 2 was more suited for my needs.

HTC seriously must appreciate their customers like Sammy does.... HTC keeps f***ing fans over and over again.

True that, and also, they should make more gimmicky softwares and add-ons. It's an effective way to gain customers which don't want to alter their stock roms(pop up play, multiwindow, airview,snote, etc.) And the updates should keep on coming. Seriously, HTC Sensation, sensation XE not supported after a year? That's just sick.

The Rezound was launched within a week of the ICS announcement, and HTC promised an update in early 2012. It didn't sell well and making ICS updates turned out to be more difficult, so it wasn't updated until August. The update that was given is very buggy and has many problems. HTC has stopped support, and that perfectly capable phone, is almost useless.

And stop doing carrier exclusives. Come to think of it, the no-carrier exclusive rule applies to all three of them - they need every sale they can get.

Nokia is too much dependent on OS. WP8 is good and has potential. But ecosystem takes time to develop and Windows needs to get better constantly. Android on the other hand, gives OEMs a free hand. That's why NAtureUX, Sense or Timescape are different. Even if Android doesn't innovate for one iteration, OEMs will. 4.2 wasn't a major upgrade, but Premium Suite took 4.1 to a new level. As long as Windows Phones do fine, Nokia is good and deserves to be a competitor. I want a Windows phone competitor without HTC having a monopoly over it.

Analysts predicts PA will report that this statement by analysts might be slightly false.

This is not the palm days nor the smart phones of yesteryears. The game is different. f**king analyst and tech pundits! Always trying their best to pull Nokia down. I'm not sure why they added HTC and Rim. Now I'm rooting for all three hoping they succeed against their love child Apple and the like.
