Report says shipments of panels for Motorola and Nokia models drop
According to the latest data, shipments of panels for Motorola and Nokia phones have been in decline during the third quarter. That comes despite the period being one of the busiest for consumer electronic companies to make purchases. Sources for DigiTimes say that the problem is competition from high-end models produced by Apple and Samsung. The same sources say that Motorola and Nokia phones are not catching buyer's eyes because of the lack of value-added features and lack of differentiation from other models. The sources added that both Motorola and Nokia are under pressure in China from white-box handset makers selling their smartphones at low prices.

Research from DigiTimes calls for Nokia to ship 8.5 million units in the current quarter. This number is expected to rise in the fourth quarter as the Finnish handset maker brings its new Windows Phone 8 enabled Nokia Lumia phones to market. Leaks on Monday revealed the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 in bright colors and with a wireless charging pad accessory.

As for Motorola, the OEM is expected to introduce a number of new models on Wednesday at a press event in New York City. Expected to be introduced are the high-end Motorola DROID RAZR HD, the mid-range Motorola DROID RAZR M 4G LTE and an unnamed model with an edge-to-edge screen and no bezel. Also Wednesday, Nokia is expected to make official the leaked pair of Windows Phone 8 models.
