Nokia has a 27.9 per cent market share of the global mobile handset market, down from 32.7 per cent at the beginning last year. The world’s biggest cellphone maker has just 1% of the U.S. market and is struggling to turn around its own falling sales. On top of that, market share of Nokia in Finland also dropped to 31% for the 3rd quarter 2011, down from 76 percent the same time last year.
But all these does not stop Niels Munksgaard, the Director of Portfolio, Product Marketing & Sales at Nokia Entertainment Global to make the statement below:
“What we see is that youth are pretty much fed up with iPhones. Everyone has the iPhone,” he said. “Also, many are not happy with the complexity of Android and the lack of security. So we do increasing see that the youth that wants to be on the cutting edge and try something new are turning to the Windows phone platform.”
Nokia just recently launch the Windows Phone 7(WP7) powered Lumia smartphones and plans to discontinue Symbian in 2016.
