The rise and demise of Nokia infographic

As for the other aspects of the company, the CEO mentioned that it won't have its HERE brand of navigation software compete directly with Google Maps, but instead rely on third-party licensees. We'd say that with the release of the beta app for Android and iOS this ship had sailed, as the app offers options lacking in Google Maps, like offline navigation. In any case, Nokia once was synonymous with the mobile industry, and has churned out many a fantastic phone over the years, up until Apple disrupted the business with the first mass-appeal smartphone. Check out the infographic below, showcasing the rise and demise of Nokia that was.

I used to have all communicator phones, but now nokia is a dead horse. They fcked up big time. Had they reacted sooner, they could be today right next to apple. Now they're just a dead horse. Sammy is the nokia.

Well, no smartphone manufacturer can dominate forever. It was time for them to fall and they did. Sammy is at the top now and will continue to be for the years to come until they topple down like Nokia.

Why would you want any established phone maker to fall? More competition eventually means better products for everyone. I want better products from Apple, Samsung, LG, Moto, HTC, Sony, hell I'll even let the Chinese in if they have something new to offer the market.

I believe they will return to making smartphones and runs Android of course, but it's not the time yet. Maybe the CEO will change his mind next year since Nokia can make smartphones again. Just look at the huge demand of the Nokia N1, it's Nokia's biggest chance to return to the smartphone game. Long live the mobile king, long live the legendary Nokia.

Yes, nokia made a mistake, Windows phone is a wrong move. They made Nokia 9 best phone, not only hardware but also software (Meego/Maemo N900). People with Android phone now still install apk feature of meego icons, but can not be 100% beauty as in N9 deep black background with "floating" Meego icons , and 64Gb storage in 2007. Nokia made some "crazy perfect, one is nokia with 43 megapixels, and most beautiful and stable phone ever : N9

A bit side track, but we can see Samsung now making a same mistake. Our time is practical and business, but Samsung follow the wrong iPhone un-removable battery trend. Who care about metal look or cheap-look plastic back (But, who said Samsung S5 has "cheap-look" back ?). I rather to have a Phone with a spare battery in pocket than a phone with a hanging big fat heavy Power bank with USB wire tangling (and wait for charging). For Galaxy S4 or S5, you just peel off the "cheap-look" plastic back and replace with spare battery and business going-on again. Quick, Practical and Light. When people comments about "cheap-look" of Samsung, I thought they are iFan people who want to kill Samsung (like they did kill Nokia before). Who care about those comments, iPhone should follow up and make "cheap-look" peel off plastic back, like they copy larger screen. Apple dead (rotten slowly), run-out of innovative capabilities, let them died. Why Samsung now has to follow metal hardback impratical idea . The invent of "Power Bank" is the bad fix of iPhone unremovable battery hardback. Please, Samsung, don't follow the dead track of Nokia.

Reason behind world's called Nokia true legend because when it leading a industry it have its own solid hardware and a decent software.that Samsung could never have.samsung is mostly famous for cheap phones with hi specification.thats why xioami lenovo huwai is easily giving a threat to Samsung.nokia has a big reson why they lose market its only bcz or android. But if Samsung lose they have only one reason that is cheap and bad build quality phones.nokia have 14 years of leadership record in mobile phone industry. Which any other company dont have not apple not Samsung

What's really disgusting about the fall of Nokia is that it was all about money. Before Elop and (I don't care what anyone says) windows phone, they had a company full of people who LOVED the company. They loved making innovative, colorful, and fascinating hardware, and software. Then Elop comes bringing WP7 and their most devoted employees jumped ship because they knew he was sabotaging what made Nokia Nokia. It's sickening. People were saying "maybe this is a good decision, they made the right choice, they shouldn't have picked android". Android would have SAVED Nokia. Stop fooling yourselves thinking that it wouldn't have.

God forbid, true story. Wait for the paid M$ shills to get here, they'll try to debunk it all. I'm sure that there will be an episode of a certain show on the History Channel in the near future with a certain Greek guy with wild-ass hair questioning if Elop is even from this planet. Anyone with common sense knows the truth...the assbag is an ALIEN!

Nokia were so Stupid letting Mr Elop step in,o.k Nokia were Struggling and needed some Investment and Microsoft were Struggling thinking there name was a Popular as Apple,and needed a Big Struggling company which they could overtake and boost there name,When Mr Elop stepped in at Nokia people knew Straight away this was something to do with Microsoft,Then when Mr Elop announce "Symbian is Dead" people knew Nokia were on a Struggling path which they Still are now on with Windows,as Symbian was so easy to use like Android is.Hope now after Nokia first Android tablet they join the android phone market
