Nokia - Tale of a brand
July 19, 2014
Bangladesh, July 19 -- There were plenty of players in the mobile market who were potential rivals of Nokia, the world's biggest maker of mobile handsets. Research in Motion (RIM) suggested that though Nokia was the global leader in the fast-growing market of smart-phones at that time, perplexingly enough, its devices were losing ground to Apple's iPhone and to the BlackBerry. Especially in America, where Apple and RIM ruled the smart-phone market, many already had seen Nokia as back-dated. The mobile device market, connected to data centre services, was the fastest growing market. So no player was ready to give up the fight as long as they had the resources to invest. Gradually the mobile phone market was developing and more consumers were opting for smart-phones. According to a research conducted by Gartner, 2013 was the year when for the first time total smart-phone sales surpassed the sales of feature phones, indicating that the market was very much in support of the next-generation devices.
