Nokia and Blackberry: Is it Game over?

Nokia and Blackberry: Is it Game over?

They once ruled the mobile phone market industry and most of them would have their first mobile phone from Nokia (at least for people India to receive can forget the 3310 and 1100 series Nokia phones) and for the professional people who have to receive emails on the go the Blackberry devices with secured email client and a full qwerty keyboard was the only choice.

While Nokia and Blackberry wasn’t the only mobile handset companies that are in the red zone, the companies that co-existed during that era the likes of Sony Ericsson, Motorola (now owned by Google) just went slipping away from the market leaders.


Mobile phone maker Nokia Oyi on Thursday reported a fourth-quarter net loss of 1.07 billion euros (US$1.38 billion) as sales slumped 21 percent even as the company’s first smartphones running Microsoft Corp’s Windows hit markets in Europe and Asia.

The loss, widened by a 1 billion euro loss booked on Nokia’s navigation systems unit, compares with a profit of 745 million euros in the same period a year earlier.
