** Denmark’s GN Store Nord’s shares up 2.6 pct at 129.20 Danish crowns per share after Swiss competitor Sonova’s product launch.
** Sydbank analyst says GN keeps its unique market position as Sonova’s new product platform is not based on the 2.4 gigahertz wireless technology used by GN.
** Lack of 2.4 GHz technology means users still need an external device to connect Sonova hearing aids to mobile phones.
** That is a big disappointment for Sonova investors and a relieve for GN investors - Sydbank.
** Shares in Sonova are traded 2.5 percent lower at 140.3 Swiss Francs per share. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
