Nokia marketshare continues to slide

Written by Fudzilla staff


Under 30 percent and falling
According to latest figures, Nokia’s market share has dropped to beneath 30 percent, while its smartphone market share has slid to 26 percent.

The numbers leave very little room for optimism. The Finnish outfit used to command a 50+ percent share in the smartphone marked just a couple of years ago. Its latest arrangement with Microsoft promises to bring about some change, but then again Nokia will transition to Windows Phone 7 in its flagship products.

On the other hand, Motorola and Sony Ericsson have opted for Google’s Android OS, which is recording much higher growth than WP7. Worst yet, Nokia’s WP7 handsets are set to appear in 2012, which means that the negative trend will continue at least until the end of the year, possible even beyond.

Nokia's WP7 phones are coming out in 5 months NOT 2012, release will coincide with the 'Mango' super-update in September. They will support newer 45nm Qualcomm chipsets with Adreno 205 IGP's.

I can't wait !!

5 months might be good because the next generation iPhone will probably be delayed

Nokia gave me resemblance of Yahoo. Both of them are world class heavy weight at booming time. They share the same weakness of slow in making changes. You can't really blame Symbian for the fall. If it's really that bad, how it could take > 60% of the market share at its peak. But as new comer joining, they failed to catch-up. IMHO, Software development is the vital weakness of Nokia. They fail to see the importance of developer-friendly SDK & encouraging ppl to use its Symbian platform. Same fall to Apple, if they keep their current business model unchanged for next 1-2 years, their days are numbered.

Colour me surprised! Nokia drops support for Symbian (and MeeGo) while not having any kind of hardware whatsoever for their favourite new phone OS du jour, Windows Phone 7. And Nokia stock is tanking, you say? Who'd have thougt...
