Nokia and China Huaxin Post & Telecommunication Economy Development Center have signed a memorandum of understanding confirming their intention to combine Nokia's telecommunications infrastructure businesses in China and Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell into a new joint venture.

14:42 EDTAAPLFitbit shares approach historical lows as Apple Watch gains traction
Fitbit (FIT) shares are eyeing their lowest levels since their IPO in June after the IDC reported that Apple (AAPL) Watch shipments are nipping on the heels of Fitbit's market dominance in wearables. WHAT'S NEW: The International Data Corporation, or IDC, released its quarterly wearables device report on Thursday, showing that Apple reached the number two spot in the global wearables market with 3.6M shipments of the Apple Watch during Q2. Notably, Apple Watch shipments lagged just 800,000 units behind Fitbit's 4.4M units for the quarter. Total shipment volume for the space was up 223.2% year-over-year to 18.1M. Commenting on the metrics, IDC research manager Ramon Llamas said Apple's "participation benefits multiple players and platforms within the wearables ecosystem," though he also cautioned that the tech giant "forces other vendors -- especially those that have been part of this market for multiple quarters -- to re-evaluate their products and experiences." Rounding out the numbers, Xiaomi shipped 3.1M wearable units in Q2, while Garmin (GRMN) shipped 700,000, and Samsung (SSNLF) shipped 600,000. HARDWARE CHALLENGES: Aside from concerns of user churn, an oft-noted potential risk for Fitbit investors is the potential that limited-use fitness wearables will be absorbed into grander, multi-function devices. On June 21, Barron's opined that specialized devices "often get subsumed," and provided the example of iPod's music functions being largely replaced by similar features in the iPhone. Various research firms have downplayed the "absorption" issue, however. On June 25, Leerink remarked that fitness trackers "occupy a different piece" of the market, and on June 30, RBC said its studies at the time showed divergence between fitness wearables and smart watches. Leerink reiterated its bullish view of the sector as recently as August 24, commenting that "interest in the category remains deep." PRICE ACTION: Shares of Fitbit have plunged roughly 9% in intraday trading, while Apple is up about 2% amid broader market gains.

08:38 EDTAAPLApple Watch shipments total 3.6M in Q2, IDC says
Apple (AAPL) reached the number two spot in the global wearables market, having shipped a total of 3.6M units of its Apple Watch in Q2, just 800,000 units behind Fitbit's (FIT) 4.4M units, according to the International Data Corporation's Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker. Total shipment volume for the quarter came to 18.1M units, up 223.2% from the 5.6M units shipped in 2Q14. "Anytime Apple enters a new market, not only does it draw attention to itself, but to the market as a whole," noted Ramon Llamas, Research Manager for IDC's Wearables team. "Its participation benefits multiple players and platforms within the wearables ecosystem, and ultimately drives total volumes higher. Apple also forces other vendors - especially those that have been part of this market for multiple quarters - to re-evaluate their products and experiences. Fairly or not, Apple will become the stick against which other wearables are measured, and competing vendors need to stay current or ahead of Apple. Now that Apple is officially a part of the wearables market, everyone will be watching to see what other wearable devices it decides to launch, such as smart glasses or hearables." Xiaomi shipped 3.1M wearable units in Q2, while Garmin (GRMN) shipped 700,000 units and Samsung (SSNLF) shipped 600,000.
