Nokia to chase the entry-level market as well at MWC, preparing affordable devices to compete with Huawei and ZTE
posted by Victor H. / Feb 22, 2013, 9:43 AM
These rumors come after we have already heard other sources agreeing Nokia will launch a new Windows Phone flagship named Nokia EOS, a device packing the amazing PureView phase one technology that we’ve seen in the Nokia 808 PureView.
The upcoming affordable models will diversify Nokia’s porftolio and show that the company is now ready to look at the bigger picture after two tough transitional years the company spent laser-focused on bringing a competitive Windows Phone flagship.
There are no further details about those upcoming entry-level devices, but we expect even more of the successful Asha feature phone series.
Nokia sold a record 4.4 million Lumia smartphones in the last quarter of 2012, a one bright spot in an otherwise very turbulent Windows Phone ride which has put the company in the red this year. Still, Nokia would need to start much more than that in order to get noticed. Samsung in comparison sold around 50 million smartphones in Q4 2012 and Apple sold a whopping 48 million of its high-margin iPhone.

NOKIA is badly struggling. Samsung & Apple are like out of reach for NOKIA.

I'll give you an example (one retailer from Russia): Android OS (67.2%) Samsung’s bada (8%) Nokia’s Asha (7.7%) Apple’s IOS (6.9%) Windows Phone (5.9%) Nokia’s Symbian (3.6%) Wait a few month for data from India, Brasil, Mexico and the entire Europe.

Agreed. Nokia may survive, and possibly even thrive, but I doubt that they will ever be again what they once were, or get back what they have lost. Samsung and Apple have never suffered such a drastic crash before, and if they are smart and learn Nokia's lesson, then it is possible that they never will... but who knows...

Oh, I was there my friend. I had to code LaTeX on an iMac... Apple's first foray into their new Mac OS X products. Then the iPod came out, and redefined the MP3 player altogether. Yeah... I was there back then, man! Cool story, huh?

Victor H probably has a short position against Nokia. He has never claimed otherwise, and until such a declaration is made public, his words and opinion about the financial state of Nokia and products they bring to maket should be ignored...
