Nokia, The Sinking Ship, Will Survive!!!

Finnish mobile company Nokia have been hitting the headlines lately for a variety of reasons. One of the major reasons is because a host of leaked information regarding the companies market and strategy status, so what's the deal? Well, for those of you who didn't predict this prior to Androids release and around the time of the first generation iPhone, Nokia are having trouble being competitive in the smartphone market. So where did it all go wrong? Well, we image it all went wrong at the point when, whoever it was said something along the lines of: "Nokia should continue to development of Symbian".

The problems may not be wholly due to Nokia's stance on Symbian but there's no doubt it's a major contributer. So what next from Nokia? They are no doubt going to switch platforms but to what? Android? Microsoft? Nokia's CEO was quoted as saying: "Our competitors aren't taking our market share with devices; they are taking our market share with an entire ecosystem. This means we're going to have to decide how we either build, catalyse or join an ecosystem,". Many suggestions on the new partnership point towards Nokia - Microsoft but we're putting our money on Nokia - Android. We feel Android is Nokia's only chance of re-capturing the fan-base they once had.
