You think Nokia went up because of Symbian? Well, this is the truth that it was Symbian which took Nokia to its glory but now this old warrior is dying. This news is official from Nokia that their sales in 2011 has gone down by 20%. The Nokia’s share in New York stock exchange has gone down by 8% since the start of 2011. Reason being the competition between the companies and the OS they are using.
According to a report compiled few days ago by some convention related to telecom, it was revealed that Android has become the best OS choice of the customers which has given rise to the sales of HTC and Sony Ericsson Xperia series and all those smart phones which use android as their os. On number 2 is the famous Apple iPhone Mac and there is a tough competition between Windows and RIM for the third place.
It was also made public that sales of Symbian smartphones were going down since july 2010 but start of 2011 has proved really bad for vendors using Symbian OS. As a consequence, and it is also official from Nokia, that Nokia has formed a partnership with Microsoft and from now on Windows phone will be regarded as a high end Nokia smartphone.
I think it really is the end of Nokia, and Android is the real superpower in smartphones OS world. It is just like the Benq-Siemens partnership in mobiles which went horribly wrong.
