Nokia Turnaround faces another Bump as Flagship Smartphone N8 faces Power Problems

Nokia is trying to turnaround its sinking fortunes with a radical change in strategy which involves New Hardware - N8,Software - Meego Operating System with Intel,AMD and Management - Elop from Microsoft.However the changes don't seem to be working as of now.White Box Mobile Phones from China continue to erode Nokia's marketshare in emerging markets while Google and Apple finish it off in the high end smartphone segments.N8 with its 12 Megapixel Camera was supposed to be Nokia's answer to the iPhone and Android handsets Galaxy,Incredible and Droid.However N8 is already facing teething problems with Delays,Lack of Sex Appeal and the latest power problems with some of its handsets.This is not going to do any good to Nokia's smartphone prospects as it lacks the aura of the iPhone.Despite some Signal problems,iPhone sales have continued to power through while Nokia does not have anything near the same brand power.It is playing the role of a challenger despite its dominant marketshare in the world smartphone market and can't afford any missteps.

3G in India – A Marketing Gimmick or a Game Changing Technology

3G Technology made a lot of waves in India after the government managed to make a huge sum in auctioning off the airwaves required for using the 3G Technology.India's big telecom providers like Airtel,Reliance,Tata Docomo,Vodafone and others fought tooth and nail for this precious resource.In the end it remains questionable whether the government really gained from the Rs 100,000 crores it got.Critics say that to recuperate this massive expenditure,companies will provide 3G services at very expensive rates making communication in India an overall loser.However it remains to be seen as leading providers Tata Docomo and Airtel start providing 3G services in 2010 itself.Note Docomo is one of the 3-4 Japanese telecom giants which has implemented 3G Technology a few years ago which proved to be a big success.While Japan has had a good 3G experience,other countries did not have it so good.In UK it pretty much turned out to be a cropper.It remains to be seen whether in India it can be a success or not.

Could Local Indian Mobile Davids Micromax,Spice Beat Global Goliaths Nokia,Samsung with Low Cost $100 Android Smartphones

Could $100 Android Phones from Local Indian Makers threaten Global Giants like LG,Samsung,Nokia in US and Europe as well While the quality of local Indian made phones are still quite poor with lots of complaints,these companies have recently got a lot of funding and support.With Mobile Handsets fast becoming a commodity with mobile apps and services becoming the more important factor,Global Handset Hardware Companies are seriously threatened.With success in one of the biggest,fast growing and competitive markets,could these small handset makers penetrate global markets as well.Micromax which is the most successful amongst the host of small,nimbe Indian companies has already starting marketing its phones in the Middle East.With low cost $100 Android phones it could lead major prices wars in the West as well.The fat margins on smartphones enjoyed by Apple,Motorola,HTC,Samsung,LG and others could be a thing of the past.Its an event that cannot be underestimated by investors in these stocks.As the sharp fall in Research in Motion and Nokia shows,the mobile market is a fast changing one and the "Hero" (pun intended) of today can easily become zeros of tomorrow.
