Future of Nokia Riding on Windows Phone 7

Tony Bradley Tony Bradley Profile: Tony Bradley

…Or, is it the future of WIndows Phone 7 riding on Nokia? No, definitely the former. WIndows Phone 7 seems to be doing OK, and with the upcoming Mango update it seems to be blazing new trails and creating a uniquely innovative niche for itself. I think WIndows Phone 7 will do OK.

Nokia, on the other hand, I’m not so sure about. It is still a dominant player in the global mobile phone market, but it has less of a footprint when it comes to the exploding market of smartphones, and is almost unheard of in the UNited States right now. Nokia needs a strong smartphone to establish some relevance as a foundation to reinvent itself.

Nokia is in a virtual freefall, and hopefully the first of its WIndows Phone 7 smartphones–expected at the end of this year–can help it get back on course.

    Although Nokia has always been a lider in the market of the phone recently it has lost its positions. And only miracle and excellent device with advanced [A href=""]mobile app development[/A] can save it from becoming a complete failure. It has announced several smarts, hope they will be able to compete with iphone and androids.
