The really big news last week wasn’t good: 17,000 jobs worldwide are being lost at Nokia Siemens Networks (which, incidentally, is a separate company from both Nokia and Siemens). That’s not far short of a quarter of the total workforce. The company is going to focus on mobile network infrastructure and services, with a particular emphasis on mobile broadband, and is likely to sell off other parts of the business.

Quite new. It’s probably the best description for much of last week’s mobile industry news.

I'll start with a personal comment. One of my friends has described my music taste as eclectic - and he didn't mean that in a good way. It probably explains why I've been sitting at my desk singing "melty head" to the tune of Lady Gaga's "Poker Face".
