    Nokia on the Ropes as Analysts Slash Targets

    By REUTERS, June 1, 2011, (Additional reporting by Nicola Leske in Frankfurt and Dominic Lau in London; Editing by Louise Heavens and Andrew Callus)

    HELSINKI/LONDON (Reuters) - Analysts predicted more gloom ahead for Nokia on Wednesday and the struggling phone maker was forced to deny talk it would sell its core business to Microsoft.

    A day after the latest in a string of profit warnings from what was once the industry number one, the stock fell as much as 10 percent to a 13 year low, compounding Wednesday's 18 percent fall, before recovering sharply to close just 0.8 percent lower at 4.71 euros on talk of the buyout.

    The recovery took place in heavy volume in late trading and was sparked by a web site report that said its software partner Microsoft would buy out its phones business for $19 billion. Nokia called the report "100 percent baseless." Microsoft declined to comment.

    They weren't doing anything with Symbian anyway, but small incremental changes. Even long time Symbian users were getting impatient. One guy shut down his Symbian fan/info site for Android after one "flagship" model kept losing memory because Nokia didn't include enough RAM or storage again just like the N97.

    They need the boost from MSFT IMO. They just need to get on the ball with the hardware and do not short the hardware on memory specs or that will kill WP7.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!
