Nokia to close two US Flagship stores, refocus on carrier and partner relationships

My Nokia contact just let me know some disappointing, but not fully unexpected, news that the New York and Chicago Flagship stores would be closing soon. We heard a couple days ago that the UK Regent Street store was closing and it seems it just hasn't made economic sense to continue with a retail presence in the UK or US given the current economic crisis and environment we are currently in.

Atari 2600 device heads back to the market

For video-gaming enthusiasts who don't wish to shell out hundreds of dollars for the latest console, there may be an alternative in the form of an upcoming $20 device for playing classic Atari 2600 games. The "Atari 10-in-1 TV Games" device is a basic joypad with 10 built-in 8-bit Atari games and a standard ATV output cable allowing it to connect to any standard television. The device will join a similar product, launched last year, that plays Activision games. The device includes classics such as Centipede, Asteroids, Missile Command, Battlezone, Adventure, Combat and four others, according to Jakks Pacific, which is making the device under licence from Infogrames Interactive, owner of the Atari intellectual property. It will retail under the brand of Jakks' Toymax International subsidiary. --Matthew Broersma, ZDNet UK

Chordiant brings CRM through channels

Chordiant this week unveiled a new suite of CRM applications designed to help companies better manage their customer service operations through retail channels. The Chordiant 5 Channel Suite, consisting of five applications and a new server, analyzes marketing and sales information from companies' branch channels, allowing them to maintain consistent customer service and brand value throughout the business. Some of the technology comes from OnDemand, acquired by Chordiant in early April. Also on Tuesday, Chordiant, of Cupertino, Calif., reported a first-quarter net loss of $8.2 million, compared with a net loss of $9.69 million in the year-earlier quarter. Revenue rose to $22.8 million, slightly below analysts' estimates but up from $13.39 million in the year-ago quarter. The company cautioned that the spending outlook for its customers, many of which are in financial services, telecommunications and consumer services, remains uncertain. --James Montgomery, Tech Update
