What's up with the mobile division Nokia go out of hand badly is no secret to anyone. But today's news confirms it best: Nokia conceded in the volume of shipments of smartphones Apple, a company that until quite recently was not present at all in this market.
In fact, the sunset Nokia started with the advent of the iPhone. The Finnish company was simply not ready for the arrival of such an unusual newcomer. It turned out at once that no one needed her time-tested, but too classic devices. And in order to release something, even remotely resembling iPhone, the Finns took too long. While other companies were able to react much faster. The market was irretrievably lost.
For the last quarter of fiscal 2011 Nokia delivered fewer smartphones on 34% than in the same period of the year 2010. The manufacturer's problem is that solutions based on the operating system Symbian no one is interested anymore, while solutions based on Windows phone the company does not yet have. And although the leadership Nokia continues to voice plans full of optimism, few people already believe in the great future of the company.
