In the first quarter of 2007, Nokia had a smartphone market share of 48%, which reduced to mere 4% in the second quarter of 2013. As a result, the Finnish phone maker decided to withdraw from the phone making business and stick with its telecom network equipment. Before the downfall, everyone liked Nokia handsets because of their quality and features. But with the advent of Android, the features offered by Nokia seemed puny. Even their in-house Symbian OS was no match for the Android.
This time Nokia is ready. It understands that in order to enter the smartphone market, it needs to adopt the popular Android OS and that’s exactly what it had done with Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. As of now, Nokia is gaining warm welcome from consumers and critics worldwide. There are already many search queries about Nokia’s latest smartphone releases over the Internet. To ensure a great comeback to the phone business, Nokia has announced a redesigned version of classic Nokia 3310. It has started taking pre-orders for the modern Nokia 3310. While it has already released Nokia 6, the Finnish phone maker looks forward to the 2 releases, Nokia 3 and Nokia 5, in mid-2017.
Do you think Nokia would be able to make a big comeback to the phone market? Or will it go down once again?
