The gist of story is innovation is the key to success. Dynamic technical leader is very essential for success of today's orgnization. When people looks from other aspect, they become laggard and miss train and loose market share.

Wale, users will compare Nokia against Android and iPhone. They'd better copy all the popular functions fast and ensure all the similar apps are there :-)

Are Pacesetters Becoming Pacelookers?

@t.alex i have similar opinion to yours - since android OS emerged that has shrinked smartphone markets to tiny portions to compete for. 

"Windows OS has to be equally competitive" How would you suggest this to Nokia?

I wish I could argue with your article Bolaji but I cannot.   I reckon your opinion is sound and I do not expect great things from Nokia any more.  The competition from low cost Asian phone suppliers and US/Asian smart phone suppliers has Nokia painted into a bad corner.

Blame the korean phone makers such as Samsung, HTC, LG.. They have new products are very fast pace with the latest Android OS. While Android went through quite extensive users acceptance test, Windows OS has to be equally competitive.

Barbara! :) The company appears to be in denial about the likely impact of certain actions. When you dump your operating system and announce you will adopt a rival's but that new products won't be forthcoming for a year, you shouldn't expect customers to hang around. Nokia isn't down because it simply tripped. It is down because of steps taken so far to correct problems at the company. Like you said, the entire market is in turmoil but at least one company isn't complaining.

I don't like to kick a company when it is down, but blaming the competitive environmant (twice) and the macroeconomic environment (at least once) isn't going to garner any sympathy from analysts and shareholders. As Bolaji points out, Nokia was No. 1 in its market, and as such competition is the one thing you can be certain of. Nokia's competitors operate in the same competitive environment. Things are tough all over. Deal with it.
