Nokia not doing so well

A while back, I noted that it was too early to tell whether Nokia would
become a fierce competitor to Apple.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology...profit-warning

Its Lumia 900, recently introduced to north america has reception
problems and Nokia has to give $100 credit to customers of AT&T who
bought that model. And sales of the Lumia are pale in comparison to Apple.

One metric: Apple sold more iPhone 4s on its launch DAY, than Nokia sold
Lumia 800s during a full quarter. (the 800 is the model outside of north
america unleiled last october).

Another problem: Nokia isn't able to ramp up Windows models fast enough
to replace its dead Symbian product lineup. When Nokia hired its CEO
form Microsost, it then announced the end of Symbian way before it could
produce Windows phones, sending Nokia into a tailspin.

The fact that Nokia isn't able to ramp up windows phones is an
indication that windows mobil software isn't that ready for prime time.

Look at how quickly android manufacturers are able to pump out new
models. (so fast that it s hard to keep track of !)

It remains to be seen what Google will do with Motorola. With Samsung,
HTC and now HUWAI driving the big numbers behind the Android market
share, Google won't want to hurt their feelings by giving Motorola too
much of an advantage.

But it is a given that Microsoft will end up buying Nokia, rescuing it
from bankrupcy, and since Nokia is the only one pushing Windows phones
in a major way, Microsoft may be giving it all its got to bring its
phones to success.

meanwhile, Apple will be purring right along, having control over both
hardware and software.

Nokia may not last much longer, but it looks like RIM will certainly beat
them to becoming part of the history books.

Google will probably use Motorola to show Android as it intended rather
than the skins the manufacturers have added to differentiate themselves
from each other.

Trouble for Nokia was developing a Windows phone from scratch which has
slowed them down.
