NOKIA, Are You Still Connecting People?

April 1st, 2012 by DVDFab_Malcolm 12,214 views

NOKIA, the Big Bro, the Giant, the Magnate, the monopolist…once upon a time, or maybe for decades long, too many words are associated with this Titan of telecommunications industry. But now, the King is struggling on its feet. People feel its pain, iOS feels its pain, Android feels its pain, and NOKIA, feels the pain, too.

 

From when on, the kingdom, the empire collapses?

 

Statistics show, NOKIA’s market share shrinks drastically from 15-year long No. 1 to No. 3 in 2008.

 

2011, its coverage continues to slump from 33% in 2010 to 14% only, far behind Apple and Samsung. Again, NOKIA feels the labor.

 

2011, NOKIA announces its alliance with Microsoft, and at the same time, declares that Symbian OS stops updates, which means Symbian is dying.

 

December 21, 2011, in an official blog post, NOKIA claims the termination of Symbian and renames its new version of OS into NOKIA Belle and NOKIA Anna respectively. The decades long married couple divorces.

 

I have been one of the NOKIA fans for 7 years. My first cellphone is NOKIA 6030, not a smart phone. My second one, NOKIA 6120c, is a bottom level smart phone released in 2007, running Symbian OS V3. I used to see movies, TV shows on this tiny little 2.0 inch screen, 320*240 in resolution. Prison Break, four seasons, are converted by DVDFab Video Converter to fit into this little screen. Despite the fact it is small, NOKIA does fill my spare time for a long time. And now, I have jumped into Android camp, leaving my NOKIA 6120c resting in my drawer, maybe forever.

 

NOKIA, are you still connecting people?

 

It seems yes.

 

According to credible source, one of the biggest American carriers by market share, AT&T, will start selling the Nokia Lumia 900 in its stores, beginning from 8th April. This new developed smartphone, targeting at high end market, is said to be selling at a very good price, slightly less expensive than the Apple iPhone 4, which AT&T has been selling for a while. Why, Lumia, why Windows Phone, why not Nokia N series, why not NOKIA Anna, or NOKIA Belle, the answer seems to be more than obvious. The decaying operating system that once ruled the world for decade long seems no longer has auras left. As above mentioned, one good reason is the strong competition from the duopoly by iOS and Android. The other one lies in the Symbian itself, with less innovation and less light of a better tomorrow. The 803 which is the newest Symbian carrier is believed to be Nokia’s goodbye kiss to Symbian.

 

Is NOKIA betting on Windows Phone to revive its empire? Is it NOKIA’s last straw? To answer this question is not quite an easy job. Here below is a list of the main tech specifications of this late comer:

Whether or not it will change NOKIA’s fate, time will prove it. Keep in mind: To change the world, one must change itself first, and NOKIA, knows this.
