New York, December 11, 2013 / Accesswire/ - Market Buzz Report, which provides technical analysis on small cap stocks, issues notable stocks reports for Nokia Corporation (ADR)(NYSE:NOK), Sprint Corporation(NYSE:S), Avanir Pharmaceuticals Inc(NASDAQ:AVNR), BlackBerry Ltd(NASDAQ:BBRY).

Multiple sources tell The Verge Nokia Corporation (ADR)(NYSE:NOK) phone unit has been working on a low-end Android phone even as the business gets set to be sold to Microsoft (MSFT). A 2014 launch is said to be planned.The phone, codenamed Normandy, reportedly features (like Amazon's Kindle Fire line) a non-Google-approved version of Android. That means it can't feature Google Play, or commonly pre-installed Google apps/services such as YouTube, Maps, Gmail, and Now. Sources compare the product to Nokia's Asha feature phones. The NYT previously reported Nokia worked on Android phones before the Microsoft deal was announced. However, the deal prohibits Nokia from selling phones under the Nokia brand until 2016. Moreover, maintaining a phone business, and the patent cross-licenses needed for it, could undercut Nokia's efforts to better monetize its IP.Thus, Microsoft will probably have the final call on whether to sell the phone. Thanks in large part to the Lumia 520 and variants.

Windows Phone has made decent gains in the low-end smartphone market. But it hasn't yet reached the unsubsidized price points (well below $100) delivered by the cheapest Android phones. In the meantime, those Android phones are eating into Nokia's feature phone business.

By leveraging spectrum found in three different bands (including city-friendly 2.5GHz. spectrum acquired from Clearwire), Sprint Corporation(NYSE:S) Spark 4G LTE service will offer download speeds of 50-60Mbps in the near-term and (with the help of carrier aggregation) possibly 150-180Mbps in two years, says CEO Dan Hesse at a UBS conference.Sprint is in the midst of rolling out Spark in a handful of major cities (service was just launched in Chicago), but Hesse promises much wider availability next year. He also admits Sprint's breakneck LTE buildout has caused some near-term service quality issues; Consumer Reports recently ranked Sprint dead last among U.S. mobile carriers in a customer service survey.Verizon, which continues to have a 4G coverage edge over rivals, is in the midst of tripling its 4G capacity in major markets.
