Mobile Marketing Statistics and Smartphone action is not quite reading for Nokia for some time. But the latest figures from IDC data types are undoubtedly the worst.Total mobile phone sales in Western Europe fell 10 percent last year fell smartphone sales up 15 percent, while the share soon be gazumped Symbian OS, is down 20, 3 percent. Samsung sold more phones that Nokia is now widely needed in Europe, with more displacement Apple smartphones.
But complete control of Android smartphone incredibly open 27.7 per cent to 35.7 per cent, which is really made for Nokia. OEM break with Android on the heels of the smartphone space, such as HTC and Samsung, across the Google operating system to new heights.
Meanwhile, Nokia has concentrated on new smartphone OS of choice even on the list of new features Windows Mobile 7 smartphone in the column “others” with a mere 6.5 per cent per cent of the shares.
It is increasingly clear that despite the problems of fragmentation seen, the ability of Android, it is a high end phone like the Samsung S2 Galaxy and kick like a good value as the HTC S Wildfire future ahead.
The fact is that you get the gingerbread iteration of the OS on a cheap phone is very attractive, especially if you use the Nokia S40 mobile phone operating system call. Why most clued-user to do this, if they can get a smart phone that offers some operating seriously smart features for the same price? Nokia has won a battle can not.
Windows Mobile 7 is reserved only for the best smartphone, but it speaks of a Nokia cell WP7 general budget. Following Symbian, the operating system of choice for the Nokia budget is again “Anna” update that can be used. Everything seems to be less important if Android can work so that the price range.
Everything should be back to the eternal question, selected at least Nokia have signed an agreement with Android and Microsoft? HTC, Samsung and LG have all, so why not Espoo? The choice of an operating system that looks good, but not yet broken into service a big risk. If it fails, Stephen Elop to his ear and Nokia even more worried now. Hedge would have been wiser.
The design of the futuristic building of the UN Android and Nokia have done a wonderful thing. Instead, Nokia will wait for the WP7 and all other steps prior to attention. Nokia issues is far from over.
