Nokia-Vodafone against Google-phone



This is the answer to Google-phone: Vodafone and Nokia agree to launch integrated Vodafone services on Nokia handsets.

This is the press release from Nokia, November 07, 2007

This is NYT:

Nokia and Vodafone Team Up on Web Services
JO BEST, November 8, 2007
Nokia and Vodafone have announced a deal that will see the former's mobile Net services platform cropping up on the handsets for the latter in Europe.

Under the agreement, Nokia's Ovi platform--which includes music, maps, gaming and social networking--will be introduced on handsets for Vodafone next year. Handset giant Nokia will also produce a number of devices exclusively for mobile operator Vodafone.

The new platform will offer Vodafone and Ovi services side by side, including both companies' own music stores.

When Nokia first launched Ovi, some industry watchers questioned whether the handset manufacturer would be able to sell mobile Internet services and avoid risking the ire of its operator customers, which are themselves trying to exploit such services to drive up non-SMS data revenue.

Ovum analyst John Delaney said the Vodafone deal will come as a significant boon to the platform.

"Of all the European operators, Vodafone is in the best position to be able to embrace the Ovi brand without damaging its own. Vodafone has invested heavily in building and marketing itself as a content services brand, since launching Vodafone Live in late 2002. Of all the operator portal brands launched around that time, Vodafone Live is now clearly the strongest. As a result, Vodafone is able to encompass other strong brands without the risk of putting its own brand in the shade," he said in a research note.

Vodafone has announced a series of content deals with big Internet brands in the course of the year, including agreements to put Google Maps, MySpace.com and YouTube on its mobile phones.

Vodafone is not the first operator to take on Ovi; Nokia announced a pact with Spanish operator Telefonica Moviles earlier this year.

That's the warning the Food and Drug Administration issued in January on "homeopathic" or over-the-counter forms of
h - CG, after a resurgence of the hormone started to gain popularity as the latest quick
fix for Americans eager to drop pounds. This
can be agonizingly frustrating for dieters who are investing their time, effort into following the right
ways to lose eight. There aren't too many modifications that you can make
to the h - CG diet plan, so be careful when you're following someone else's
recommendations. That is why the EPT Early Pregnancy Test is
very important. The HCG diet does not provide a holistic approach helping the patient learn healthy eating habits, learning to eliminate processed foods or
unhealthy GMO products, or chemicals like artificial sweeteners.

The makers of Lyrica state it may cause serious, life threatening allergic reactions.

Read some of this information for yourself, get both sides, and weigh out (no pun intended) the pros and cons about HCG and weight loss.
In harmony with this protocol, anyone using these drops needs to supervise his weight on a regular basis.
Who doesn’t want to look good and live a healthy lifestyle.

So when you are eating too few calories, your body
will pull the energy it needs from other sources such
as your muscle and fat stores.

Howdy! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I had
to ask. Does running a well-established website
like yours take a lot of work? I'm completely new to
blogging however I do write in my journal daily.

I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new
aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
