The position of the Finnish company Nokia in the world market leaves much to be desired.
And it continues to get worse - at least in China, a kind of anti-record was even set, consisting in the loss of a colossal share of the local market.
According to The Next Web, if in 2011 Nokia owned 29.9% of the market, which meant absolute leadership, then in 2012 it managed to save only 3.8%. As a result of this loss, the company moved from first place to seventh. Interestingly, the company still tried to put a good face on a bad game, starting to talk about the "wonderful" sales of Lumia smartphones, of which "as many as" 2 million units were sold in China. However, it was subsequently decided to stop such a PR campaign. For two reasons: this information was not confirmed by anything and against the background of 30 million devices from Samsung Nokia's numbers don't look significant.
As for the first three positions in the Chinese market, they were divided among themselves by Samsung (slightly less than 18%), Lenovo (13.2%) and Apple (11%). Next come local producers, some of which are practically unknown outside the country.
The Chinese smartphone market is one of the largest markets in the world today. Moreover, according to analysts' expectations, in the near future it will become the largest, bypassing the US market.
