We have been talking about how Nokia is losing market share in India and while Nokia officially denies such stories, the writing is on the wall.
As per Opera’s March report, Micromax Q5 was one of the popular handset (#8) for Internet browsing in India and if you notice, none of the recently launched Nokia devices (N97/N900/N8) are in this list.
This should mean a lot for Nokia – what happens when these users start “upgrading” their handsets? Will they stick to Nokia or move out to other alternatives like Micromax/Samsung?
What’s your opinion?
PS: Of course, Nokia doesn’t bundle Opera browser in their handset, and hence this report doesn’t include the newly launched handset. So take this with a pinch of N-salt.
