As it was stated in the introduction, with the smartphone revolution, Nokia failed to understand the future direction of mobile devices. This underestimation of the rising innovation, in terms of global market shares, led to a drastic decline – from 2007 to 2013, the company lost 45.2% of its market
However that in 2007 the market of Nokia Company started to decrease and the reasons for that is the new competitions like IPhone from Apple that introduced smartphones, along with Android by Google, and Samsung. Even though Nokia Company results for 2012 were pre much good by having 101982 workers across 120 countries along with sales in more than 150 countries, and the reports for revenue were around 30€ billion. Nokia was announced to be the second largest world for mobiles phone makers in terms of unit sales after Samsung, with having world wide market share 18.0%.

Nokia, which overtook Motorola in 1998 to take the crown of biggest phone manufacturer of world, lost its prestigious crown after struggling for last 3 years. The 4 costly mistakes that lead to Nokia losing the battle are described in this article. Nokia launched its Symbian 60 series in year 2002 which initially had a good market response but with the introduction of Apple iOS in 2007 and Android in 2008, the OS race was completely taken over by the two giants. The reasons for collapse of Symbian OS is lack of applications and UI (User Interface). After facing competition from iOS and Android, Nokia continuously tried to improve their Symbian OS but it was mostly following the UI of Android and iOS and was not creating something unique. Secondly, the company failed to look into the need of available applications in gaining market share. The company made the biggest mistake to take a leap of faith in Windows in 2011. At that point of time, the company already was in declining condition and trusting Windows which was new in the field to regain its status was the biggest mistake the company made. tiff competition from Samsung and Apple, and lack on focus on innovation was the second big reason of collapse. Even if users could ignore the OS, the the hardware features which Nokia was rolling out were quiet late as compared its major competitors Samsung and Apple.
Fast forward 10 years, Motorola releases its first mass production type cell phone the Motorola Dyna TCA 8000X, costing consumers nearly $4,000, due to its cost and lack of performance it wasn’t a big hit, really only business type people would fork out the dough for one. It wasn’t till 1997 when Nokia launched its Nokia 6110, with features such as games like Memory, Snake and Logic; it also had a calculator, clock and calendar. The Nokia 6110 was a huge improvement over the costly Motorola device, with the battery last longer and giving consumers more talk time, with added features like the games and clock/calendar. Over the year technology continued to shape mobile device and their features, in 2003 the BlackBerry5810, took it up a notch allowing users to not only make phone calls, but also check and send emails with its QWERTY keyboard feature. Few years later BlackBerry produced another one of a kind cell phone with the BlackBerry 7270 released in 2005, what was so special about it? It offered the first ever Wi-Fi feature, since then the sky has been the limit for smart phones, they are smaller, lighter, and offer users not only the ability to make phone calls, but also features like email, web browsing, music, games, apps, online banking and yeah still has a clock and calendar.
They created the first GSM telecommunication and make it commercial. It is namely as Nokia Protitype Phone and the first product was Nokia 1011. Eventhough they were still have many competitors like Erricson, Samsung, and Google at the time, Nokia still keep trying to do their best when their falling era. Because of their innovation in GSM Phone, Nokia can get more their market for telecommunication and spread their product to their market. In 1992, Nokia tried to do the agreement with Vodafone and successfully in improving the network roaming for its GSM as the dominant network standardization. In the end of 1990s and in the beginning of 2000s, Nokia is still in the inertia eventhough they have many innovation products on GSM but their competitor like Erricson also created the same mobile for the telecommunication so that they competed each other for controlling the
