It won’t be an exaggeration to say that Nokia introduced ‘mobile’ to a whole lot of us. Chances are that 3 out of 4 phones you owned were from Nokia.
But as a brand, Nokia has been losing mind share. User’s taste, aspirations have changed and the company has been trying to catch up with that.
New local players who understand the ‘ishtyle’ part of Indian users are rolling out cheaper phones which still offer the basic functionality, but actually look like a hep to show off (read: Nokia Market Share in India Falling).
And as far as smartphone market is concerned, the game is still ON and Nokia again is playing a catch up with Apple and others.
Beyond those numbers (of market share, sales) lies a much deeper connection (with consumers) and newer brands have shaken that up in a way.
So here is a poll for our early adopters/opinion maker audience
