The latest earnings reported by Nokia, show a loss of $1 billion, in Q2 2012.
This looks like something that was quite expected to be happening. With the stiffened competition from the other smartphones in the market, and the “wrong-timing” for the release of a very shiny Nokia Lumia 900.
Stephen Elop, the companys CEO, had the following to say with regards to the Q2 earnings,
Nokia is taking action to manage through this transition period. While Q2 was a difficult quarter, Nokia employees are demonstrating their determination to strengthen our competitiveness, improve our operating model and carefully manage our financial resources. We shipped four million Lumia Smartphones in Q2, and we plan to provide updates to current Lumia products over time, well beyond the launch of Windows Phone 8.
Nokia is an excellent phone. I still remember the Nokia always being a rugged all weather kind of phone. However, with the iPhone, Blackberry and the Android, Nokia is facing a tough challenge. Each of the smartphones have an operating system associated with them. These operating systems represent an identity.
Nokia must focus on building this identity, if you recollect Nokia just dropped the Symbian for Microsoft Windows. Nokia has an added advantage in a sense, that people still like Nokia for its rugged nature, and with App compatibility, smooth interface, Nokia might just become one of the tough competitors again.
Did you just buy a Nokia phone recently? If yes, hows your experience with the Windows OS, and the touch interface of the phones? Do you have an opinion? Do share it with all the readers here.
To buy, or not to buy, that is the question.
The Nokia flagship phone has been discounted by 50 percent. But does that mean you should buy this phone?
Here’s what cnet says on this,
Unless you’re comfortable being stuck a generation behind in just a few months, you should avoid Nokia’s flagship phone.
And that’s what exactly is the deal. The phone that has been discounted from original $99.99 to $49.99 has simply been a victim of bad timing. While the other Windows phones can be upgraded. A phone from Windows 7 can’t be upgraded in the real sense to Windows Phone 8.
This lack of upgradation, doesn’t really do any good to the desire of having this phone.
When you buy a phone, you want it to last for sometime (at least an year). A phone that is already out-dated isn’t such a real good buy. When you get something much better in the similar price range.
By the way, the price cut on the Nokia Lumia 900 has led to a drop in the price of Nokia shares at the stock market. Even though that doesn’t tell you really how good or bad a device really is. But it does give you an insight of what the majority feels about Nokia at this moment.
