You are the only poster here trying to twist the numbers by saying Apple never meet their self-imposed goal because theyre market share is less than 1% of the installed base, as if that is suppose to make sense or that anyone over 10yo would be fooled by your silly and blatant attempt to lie about easily obtainable facts and well understand economic terms.

Youve been given sources and exact quotes as to what Jobs stated during the 2007 keynote and yet you still swear that Jobs implied installed base despite saying market share. Perhaps some protective headgear would be in order.

You may want to sell a couple of your shares and get some reading lessons, I never said anything about Apple not meeting any target, I said Steve used the whole market for his metric. Big difference.

the suit is a tactical miscalculation because it tells the whole world they are desperate. the next Sony.

I'd say.

I highly doubt Apple is going to give Nokia their intellectual property. Apple buried Nokia's 20 years in the phone business inside 3 years. They've swept them away with a paradigm shift.

Unit sales will follow the fulcrum shift.

Nokia's is like dinosaur that had it's brain killed...it's doing to take it a while to realise it's dead. And Apple 'killed' it.

Apple are going to take alot more than 2% of the phone market. They're entering more markets, using more suppliers.

And there's always the annual refresh next year. And they're got 100k plus reason to buy one at the App store.

iPhone is a juggernaut. It's going to make the iPod and it's halo look like chicken feed.

Nokia is going to get run over...knocked clean outta the ring. A stale hardware maker sitting on it's product vs a software platform? Nokia got caught with it's pants down...and Apple booted them right up the ass.

Lemon Bon Bon.

Well, went back into the Sapporobaby fanclub archives to bring this up. Talk about hardly a life.

Anyway, you are not me. There are somethings you continue to broadcast post after post but here we are, so please do not be offended if I ignore many to most of your suggestions.

There is a big difference but you aren’t understanding the difference. He used the sales market for 1 year. You didn’t use any market, but instead used the installed base to call Apple a failure and Jobs a liar. I’ve given you the transcript and done the math on this thread to show you how your lies are once again BS. Apple took a 2.28% marketshare for the handset market for Q3-2009. You can dispute it all you want but the facts back me up.

Mobile phones, just about a billion last year, worldwide. So what does this tell you? What this tells you is, that 1 percent market share equals 10 million units.

What part of that is Jobs claiming that they’d have 1% of the installed base in 1 year? Either you can’t admit when you are wrong or you are seriously unable to comprehend simplest of things.

Umm . . . the iPhone.The device the also-rans are trying furiously to imitate, unsuccessfully. The device that revolutionzed the entire mobile industry overnight. Where have you been the last two years??

Amen.

Where was that guy when S Jobs keynoted the iPhone? It sent a shock wave through the phone industry on day of launch. It blew everyone away. Familiarity may breed contempt. Alot of jealousy. And FUD.

But the iPhone is the closest thing we have to Star Trek tech' until the 'slate' is released.

Apple has systematically dismantled the phone industry.

They blew away the 'pipe' monopolist dictators that have stifled competition.
They blew away the 'hardware' model.
They blew away the old software model.
They made a mobile phone that CAN use a browser, the internet.
They created the App store. Which to date dwarfs any competition by a country mile.
They integrated an iPod and internet brower with a phone that blows the competition out the water.
YOu get a proper OS on it.
You get a proper browser on it.
It has multitouch that actually works.

They did all of this while Nokia and Sony and MS were busy fighting over yesterday's ideas.

It's only a matter of time before Unit sales blow the rest away. Rim 1st. But Apple are going to take Nokia down. Limb by limb. Nokia have had to shut their flagship store. And isn't their N-Gage platform in tatters?

Ironically, Apple's iPhone is a games heaven.

Sure. You pay for it. But in this case? You DO get what you pay for.

iPhone. You had me at 'hello.'

So how's your N97?

That was a massive success...

...not!

Hey it did so well Nokia is dumping Symbian for their high end handsets in favour of Maemo on the N900, their new flagship, well sort of flagship as it's more of an Internet tablet stuck in landscape mode most of the time.

Nokia needs Apple for it's phones as Symbian uses a WebKit based browser, open source developed by Apple.

Fennec is only for Maemo so far, the flagship after the failure of a hundred N95 clones with slightly different features.

Nokia grasping at straws, N-Gage is dead, their flagship stores are closing, London, New York, they pulled out of Japan, they made their first loss in ten years last quarter.

Nokia were knocked from the number one position based on handset revenue by guess who.

A Nokia executive admitted in 2007 that they are proud of copying others.

A dinosaur is slowly dying and all their executives offer is excuses as they slowly go down.

Their big plan to grow smartphone market share?

Dump S40 and filter S60 "Smartphone's" down into the dumb areas of the market, low cost "smartphone's that won't be used as smartphones,

Suck it up fanboy.

post #211 of 278
Dunno an' don't care, I guess we'll just have to wait and see how this pans out.

btw why did Nokia pay Qualcomm $2.6 billion again?

Wasn't it something to do with infringing Qualcomm's patents, including their GSM ones?

Hasn't Apple paid Qualcomm licensing fees?

Can a GSM phone work based solely on Qualcomm's patents?

What about Apple's work with Quicktime?

Do those codecs work over a GSM network without using Nokia's codecs?

It's not all black and white you know, where is the proof that Nokia's technology is essential?

Does Apple have licensing agreements with Ericsson, Motorola, Siemens, Phillips or any of the other players?

Does their technology allow for bypassing Nokia's "essential" technology?

Lot's of questions and it's up to the courts to decide them.

Actually, quite a bit. If you think that Google is Microsoft, it isn't.

For starters, I don't think Google operatives are as crippled by bureaucratic inertia as Microsoft management is. But the biggest indicator, I feel, that Google will support older non-Google devices is from the simple fact that Google makes money from advertising, not from licensing.

Microsoft's WinMo is crap because Microsoft doesn't really need to care. It gets money up front from the phone sale. For Google, it needs to get that phone to pull users to their advertising, so Google is more apt to maintain support for non-Google phones. As I mentioned before, I think Google executives are just a bit smarter than Microsoft executives and learned the lessons that Microsoft should have learned with their WinMo experience. Microsoft executives seem content to push third-rate duplications of other products, litigate competitors into oblivion, and let their licensing fees simply roll in.

That's my $0.02. Take it for what you will.

Nokia didn't pay again, it payed the money owed to Qualcomm and royalties for the next 15 years.

And no, you can't make a phone without licensing patents to Nokia, Qualcomm, Ericsson, etc. Theay all have essential patents

Google doesn't have to support anything, when a new version of Android is released, phone manufactures can compile it and adapt it for their handsets

Proof?

Didn't Apple get together with Qualcomm to develop codecs specifically for streaming over networks for Quicktime?

How do we know Nokia didn't use those codecs or the same idea in their patents?

Wouldn't that make that specific claim invalid?

Umm... Phones aren't new, they existed before the iPhone, they sold a lot of them as well. Touch screens, nope, they aren't new either. cellphones have had them for a long time, App Store, nope, not new, Apps, not new, acutally they was just a rehash from Apple that everyone else already had. Sure the iPhone was a great thing to come out in the US, but in the last two years Apple hasn't brought anything new to the table, all rehashes of what everyone else was already selling.

Infact, I have seen a grand total of two, maybe three iPhones in the wild in the last two years, in multiple countries, all with over 100% usage, that is including a grand total of one in the last year.

The trick is to quit while you are still ahead.

Bruce, sorry man, I can't agree with you on this. Everything else, I do - more than agree. This individual has, in recent memory, been banned twice already, and perhaps more before I began posting, and I'm sure has been warned more times than I care to count. There's a difference between playing the contrarian (and doing it well), and spamming the board with one-liners with an emoticon hanging off them, designed just to bait others and get attention. The owners and mods have not defended this behaviour. In fact, they've penalized it pretty heavily, as we've seen in recent memory.

This individual does not help AI sell ads, nor does he pull in viewers. AI articles help sell ads and pull in viewers. The tone, slant, and headlines of the articles help sell ads and pull in viewers.

And all these lifeless white skinned nerds do need a foil like TS to daily rage against

No, we don't.

I know you mean well, but easy on the generalizations. A lot of these "lifeless" people post a lot of substance, and if AI is about discussion, then they certainly advance the discussion further. And if we're not here to do that first and foremost, then our intentions are dubious at best.

Why are you restricting Apple to the Smartphone market, when Steve Jobs originally said he wanted a share of the total market?

If you read that article, it proves that the iPhone isn't as big as people in parts of the US make it out to be.

Perhaps because 4.4+ Billion of those purported connections aren't smartphones; hence they are money losers, not profit gainers. Apple's is gaining the lion's share of profits in the smart phone market.

This site claims in March 2009 Apple total iPhone sales at 17 million since it's inception.

The now purported number has doubled in under a year.

He apparently did not bother to read Apple's response to Nokia's suit.

Isn't the whole question here about four different points?

1) Did Apple infringe Nokia patents without paying? Who knows until court gives a verdict.

2) Are the Nokia patents "essential". Apple is saying no, other licensees and industry analysists are saying: YES. Look at pages 9-> http://www.frlicense.com/GSM_FINAL.pdf. Nokia chose 10 of 180+ patents that have been deemed essential to make the case strong.

3) Did Nokia offer F/RAND to Apple? Nokia says yes, but Apple told them to shove it, Apple says No. We'll knwo until the courts say which way it went.

4) Apple says Nokia infringed on their patents. Who knows until court gives a verdict.

So isn't this a case, where we as layman can only believe industry analysis of the FACTS (i.e. point 2). The other points are ruled by in court. Point 3 could be ruled by us, but none of us know what Nokia offered Apple and what other companies are paying for the same patents.

<Personal opinion>Apple's wording in the beginning of the filing about Nokia being desperate is not very professional and shows arrogance (founded in valid success no doubt) or an attempt to shift the focus from the fact of patents and licensing to "sore loser" type of blaming. </Personal opinion>

All good points and nicely presented. Were likely not going to know who stole whose patents since this will likely be settled out of court for some paltry amount that will make wonder why they even bothered to butt heads in the first place.

We can look at the 2003-2006 case of Apple Corps v. Apple Computers, Inc. to see how going to court can backfire.

I see your point but I dont think its strong enough to be conclusive for me to form an opinion on who is at fault. It seems more like a tactic than Apple being cornered with the goods in hand.

Again, you seem to be confusing things, Nokia hasn't dumped Symbian for anything, they are using a different OS on one model yes, dumping no.

If they are dumping Symbian like you say, why are you cared. Also, WebKit is open source, so they don't need Apple for it at all.

Not sure what you are trying to say here at all.

Now, your lack of knowledge really comes out, Nokia handset division made a profit, quite a large one, it was NSN that made the loss. Also, they still sell some models of their phones in Japan.

Yes all the metrics changed to revenue because Apple doesn't make a dent in the share otherwise. As a consumer (ie I don't own shares in any company) Apples profits on their devices offends me, enough to make me really think what make of computer I will purchase next will be.

Again, your point? Apple has been copying for years, all companies do it.

I own more Apple products than Nokia products and that makes me a fanboy? For which side?

There's a difference between playing the contrarian (and doing it well), and spamming the board with one-liners with an emoticon hanging off them, designed just to bait others and get attention. The owners and mods have not defended this behaviour. In fact, they've penalized it pretty heavily, as we've seen in recent memory.

This individual does not help AI sell ads, nor does he pull in viewers. AI articles help sell ads and pull in viewers. The tone, slant, and headlines of the articles help sell ads and pull in viewers.

And all these lifeless white skinned nerds do need a foil like TS to daily rage against

No, we don't.

I know you mean well, but easy on the generalizations. A lot of these "lifeless" people post a lot of substance, and if AI is about discussion, then they certainly advance the discussion further. And if we're not here to do that first and foremost, then our intentions are dubious at best.

i was born from massive troll wars on the EMI pink floyd boards . A TROLL war so bad the board crashed forever. .I learned one thing and one thing only my friend . and my whole post addresses that single lesson learned

IF YOU FEEL SOME ONE IS A TROLLC THEN YOU MUST NOT ENGAGE HIM EVER .

quadra this seems so simple and clear .., i ilke TS a lot but even i cringe sometimes at his caustic remarks .

I was not referring to you in my WHITE BOY crack .. I was trying to shame some fine reg ppi who add so much great stuff hear yet on the turn of a dime they start fighting with TS about stupid stuff .
hi jacking yet another good topic .

i agree with you about the AI ad stuff i may be wrong .


last word is any one upset at this situation must just ignore said offender.

i regret quagra if i offended you ; i did not mean too .

peace

Never meant to be conveying a conclusive point as such. A mere personal "feeling" from the filing.
