  1. Frankly, I’m getting tired and annoyed at Americans measuring European governments by their own crummy governmental standards. There is absolutely no reason to be surprised at this.

  2. “In order for Nokia to retain its dominant position, the company needs to look beyond pure vanilla hardware.”

    People like to think of mobile phones as being smartphones and the like and certainly the margins are high on these kinds of phones but they remain a small fraction of Nokia’s sales. People in the US don’t realise how dominant Nokia is because the US is a very weak market for them – but it is practically their only weak market. I have heard their processes compared favourably to those of Walmart. In short, they make quality phones much more cheaply than anyone else.
