Loaded: Nokia's new CEO comes in guns blazin'

2:56 /

HP will show off the fruits of its acquisition of Palm at an event today, the iPhone 4 for Verizon goes on sale for shipping and pick up via Apple's online store, and new Nokia CEO Stephen Elop sends a strikingly blunt memo to his employees.

ITS WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 9TH. I'M JEFF BAKALAR AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] CNET WILL ALSO BE LIVE AT HP'S WEB-OS EVENT TODAY AT 10AM PACIFIC TIME. WE'RE ANTICIPATING THE COMPANY WILL USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO DEMONSTRATE WHAT HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED SINCE BUYING PALM. WILL WE SEE A TABLET? A NEW PRE? CNET BE LIVE FROM THE EVENT WITH BLOGS AND VIDEOS. [*] NOKIA'S NEW C-E-O STEPHEN ELOP HAS ONLY BEEN ON THE JOB FOR A FEW MONTHS, BUT HE'S READY TO SHAKE THINGS UP AT THE ONCE-LEADING CELL PHONE MAKER. IN A STRIKINGLY BLUNT EMAIL TO TO HIS EMPLOYEES, MR. ELOP SAYS NOKIA IS "YEARS BEHIND" ITS COMPETITORS. HE NOTES, "The first iPhone shipped in 2007, and we still don't have a product that is close to their experience. Android came on the scene just over 2 years ago, and this week they took our leadership position in smartphone volumes." NOKIA, WHICH REPORTED PROFITS DOWN 21 PERCENT IN THE FOURTH QUARTER OF 2010, HAS DECLINED TO COMMENT. [*] ACCORDING TO A WALL STREET JOURNAL REPORT, PRODUCTION HAS ALREADY BEGUN ON THE IPAD 2. THE ARTICLE GOES ON TO SAY THAT THE NEXT IPAD WILL INDEED HAVE AT LEAST ONE CAMERA, A FASTER PROCESSOR, AND POSSIBLY MORE MEMORY--ALL OF WHICH WE HAVE EXPECTED. APPLE HAS ALREADY SOLD CLOSE TO 15 MILLION IPADS WITH ANALYSTS PREDICTING SALES IN 2011 AT AROUND THE 30 MILLION MARK. [*] VERIZON SAYS COMPANY WILL OFFER "HIGH DEFINITION" VOICE QUALITY ON ITS 4G L-T-E NETWORK SOMETIME NEXT YEAR. THE NEW PROTOCOL CALLED Vo-L-T-E ALLOWS FOR VOICE AND DATA TRANSMISSION AT THE SAME TIME--A BIG CRITICISM OF ITS C-D-M-A NETWORK. VERIZON WILL DEMO THESE TECHNOLOGIES AT THE MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS TRADESHOW IN BARCELONA. AS ALWAYS, CNET WILL BE ON HAND. [*] LAST YEAR, WE REPORTED ON AN NYU PROFESSOR WHO SURGICALLY IMPLANTED A CAMERA TO HIS HEAD AS A "NEW MEDIA EXPERIMENT." WELL, IT TURNS OUT HIS EXPERIMENT ISN'T GOING TOO WELL. HIS BODY IS REJECTING THE CAMERA, AND HE HAS HAD TO REMOVE THE DEVICE. THE PROFESSOR REMAINS UNDETERRED; HE WILL CONTINUE THE EXPERIMENT WITH THE CAMERA STRAPPED TO HIS HEAD. [*] GOOGLE HAS RELEASED A NEW IPHONE APP FOR GOOGLE TRANSLATE. THE APP HAS ALL THE FEATURES OF THE EXISTING WEB APP, BUT IT NOW INCLUDES A "SPEAK TO TRANSLATE" FUNCTION AND YOU CAN NOW ALSO LISTEN TO YOUR NEW TRANSLATIONS. [*] APPLE HAS FINALLY MADE THE VERIZON IPHONE 4 AVAILABLE FOR ORDERING ON ITS ONLINE STORE TODAY. THERE'S STILL NO WHITE VERSION YET, AND THE FIRST PHONES WILL ARRIVE AROUND FEBRUARY 18TH. BE SURE TO CHECK BACK WITH CNETTV TOMORROW FOR THE LATEST COVERAGE OF THE VERIZON IPHONE LAUNCH HERE IN NEW YORK CITY. [*] THAT IS YOUR NEWS FOR THE DAY, I'M JEFF BAKALAR FOR CNET. COM AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
