Briefly: Surface display, Nokia on edge

DisplayMate doubts Microsoft's Surface prediction

DisplayMate has weighed in on Microsoft's recent assertion that the screen on its Surface RT device would be better for reading than the high-resolution Retina display featured on the newest iPad. In a brief analysis of Microsoft's claim, DisplayMate finds that Microsoft's tablet will likely produce a more readable image than the iPad 2, but that it was unlikely to be able to best the Retina display. As the Surface has not yet been released, DisplayMate was unable to use an actual unit, but instead relied on an Asus Netbook, which they believe to be similarly specced.

Needham & Company: Nokia's moment of truth approaching

Needham & Company has maintained its hold rating on Nokia shares after the Finnish phone makers third quarter proved only to be about as bad as expected. Needham notes the collapse of sales of Nokia phones over the past few months, a fact it says was inevitable considering Microsoft's decision to pull the plug on Windows Phone 7.5. The firm doesn't believe that the forthcoming Lumia 820 and 920 will have a material impact on Nokia's performance until 2013, as the company is roling out those devices at a "measured" pace.

    For a company who's focussed (no pun intended) on displays, they sure have an ugly web site.
