It’s been a big week for Nokia. The roots of its smartphone technology evolved into a consumer product and details of its first Windows-based handset have hit the headlines. Where to now for the once-mighty mobile maker?
Finnish blogger and mobile Linux developer Henri Bergius has written a nice summary of what MeeGo is and how it’s not just a Linux-based OS, but an entire ecosystem. It makes me wonder how long it will be before a large handset or tablet maker will start shipping it in big numbers.
With more than 90 per cent of desktop and notebook computers running some variant of Microsoft Windows, it’s worth asking ourselves could the same be repeated in the mobile phone market?
As the dust settles after the Nokia-Microsoft pact over Windows Phone 7, more news has come to light that Microsoft essentially bought its way into the mobile industry by paying Nokia billions for the privilege of being chosen for its handsets. Unfortunately for Nokia money won’t buy market share.
