Cryptoman:You're right. it's not just keeping up with innovation; it's keeping up with buyer preferences... which today change every few quarters its seems.

In my opinion what Nokia should do is keep its stronghold on feature phones intact while trying to gain a sizable market share in smart phones by a consistent product offering without being panicky.

In short Nokia should protect their eggs in the basket while trying to lay new eggs ( A new Idiom!)

Cryptomans, you are right. Instead of sailing with the market or with latest trends, they kept themselves isolated with technology. They had a good OS Symbian, which sacked for embracing Windows OS. They captured all the markets with Symbian based mobiles and instead of doing further developments, they simply dropped it.

Jennifer, would you think W8 based Smart Phones will give any breathing Oxygen to Nokia. I think as of now only Nokia has the plan to come up largely with Windows based phones. Samsung and LG also have plans, but their major products are with Android OS.

Wale Bakare - I'm not sure what the revamp strategy would be... Nokia recently tried to launch its latest Lumia phones. But maybe what Nokia should consider is how to leverage the strength it has in the feature phone market (which still has a huge following in many parts of the world).

İt is very sad to see Nokia go down like that. So many talented people have lost their jobs during this decline as well which is tragic. İ guess in order for one manufacturer to flourish, it takes at least one to lose. Sustaining success in the handset business requires constant research and development and a good "read" of the market trends and the user preferences. İf you purely rely on the size of your brand and expect the buyers to like your products by default, you will lose eventually. You have to lift your head and look around you to see what others are doing no matter how confident you are with your technology.

"and it's not clear to me if that will be enough of an innovation for Samsung to hold its lead." At least, it is something , It passed a long time seen we saw an innovating technology to take place. Both companies lost so much time in the courts.

Thanks Jennifer for this article. My question ---- what do you or analysts across Europe think could be best strategy in revamping this predicament?
