Nokia; Still Going Down!

Couple of months ago I wrote about why Nokia is loosing the battle in smartphone war! The latest news that iPhone share of smartphoniphonese market is up to 17 percent is another affirmative sign of gradual decline for Nokia. While global mobile phone handsets were almost the same as for the same quarter in 2008, smartphone sales were up by 13 per cent to 41 million for the three months ending September 30. This means you can not count on out of date, old fashion voice centric phones forever to generate revenue. Also, you can not wait for Apple or other companies to come out with a concept (iPhone, iTune, etc) and just copy that! You should have some innovation yourself to be successful!

    Espoo has some problems, this is clear. They also have tremendous strength and have repeatedly respun the company in the past. That said, Apple is showing the world that much of the value of a mobile platform comes from what 3rd party developers do with it, creating new apps and capabilities that did not exist before, making the phone a more compelling choice. Espoo has stumbled here, first with a fragmented platform strategy and then with sending mixed messages to the developer community. Sadly they have really lost mindshare with developers and need to do something to regain trust and confidence. People want to be rewarded for their hard work and being on a popular platform that is easy to do cool things with and easy to make money from helps pay the rent.
