Legal "Apple vs. Samsung initially ended with a billion-dollar verdict in favor of Apple, but there have been plenty of wrinkles since. This week brought about another, as Nokia filed an amicus brief on behalf of Apple, Inc. in the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. In the brief filed Monday, Nokia asked the court to permit permanent injunctions on the sale of Samsung phones that were found to infringe Apple's patents." In the meantime, the latest comScore figures for the US show that Windows Phone's market share actually declined during the launch of Windows Phone 8. It's pretty clear that, combined with the disappointing quarterly results for Nokia, the company is setting itself up for the future. In this future, Nokia's patent portfolio is worth more than their actual phone business, and as such, Nokia can't do anything but support Apple in this case, else the value of their portfolio goes down.

I do not subscribe to the mental backflips Tomi does to arrive at his conclusions.

He's laughed at by everyone except Nokia haters and apparently OSNews. He's not insightful, influential, or even right. He's been so blinded by ideology that it's almost sad.

I read his blog years ago before the Windows Phone transition and he generally had something smart to say once in a while, between him plugging his stupid book everywhere and his annoying self worship.

Holds the definitive list of fact checking on Tomi Ahonen. He's a fraud who routinely manipulates numbers. Fortunately for him, his interests line up nicely with those of people who are still burned that Nokia killed off MeeGo (like some on OSNews) or people who irrationally hate Microsoft (again, like some on OSNews). Snake oil salesman, in my opinion.

Well he was featured as the the number one Top 10 Power Influencers in Mobile in Forbes magazine.

Of course the reason you are attacking him is all because he is saying things you don't want to hear, which is that Microsoft's mobile efforts are doing really poor.

Was. He no longer holds that position.

In fact, he's not even Top 10 anymore. People are recognizing him for the joke that he's become. Its tragic. In an ironic twist though, the most influential person is the guy that runs MyNokiaBlog.

Instead of attacking me, read the links I've posted. Specifically the first one, which shows his various inaccuracies. He's grossly misleading.
