Yeah, probably one of the biggest strategic errors in the whole technology industry. They’re sceptical about smartphones.
I had some Nokia cell phones, then I started to use Palm Treo, my first smartphone.
Rumors say, they had problems. Very big company, internal competition among selfish managers. Then Microsoft came, sent Stephen Elop in disguise to fuck up things even more. MS bought up the dieing half of Nokia then threw it in the trash. All to make MS competitive against Google and Apple, yet they failed, WP is garbage.
Nokia had very good concept coming up before the MS raid, an OS called Maemo, later Meego. But it is also practically dead now.
They got sloppy. I think they were approached by android development team but they turned them down. They lost out because they got cocky. All empires collapse eventually. Only way to stay ahead is take risks. Which they never did which is why they lost out
