The analyst pointed out that at such rates Nokia would sell 2.5 million units of its flagship in the fall months and a total of 9 million through 2011. According to a recent report by Gartner, Nokia still has the leading position in global smartphone sales with a market share of 36.6 per cent. If the Nokia N8 sells at the projected rates, Nokia's market share will fall to 35 per cent, which would still keep the Finns first.
Espoo went through a restructuring and a change in the company's management in an effort to regain its position in smartphone sales and since then there are some signs of hope as Ovi Store grew to some 3 million app downloads a day and has nearly 400,000 registered developers. Symbian^3 still suffers from not being fully touch optimized and its basic apps are not performing on par with what we see in Android and iOS. What do you think is the future for Nokia?
