"If China can be captured then other huge markets like India where Nokia has a good following can surely be recaptured if the right product at right price is made available by Nokia in feature phones as well as smart phones"

Prabhakar, I don't think it's so easy because the mobile penetration or density in India is high when comparing with ant country. If they want to recapture the market, it has to be superior to the existing devices in market with a reasonable good price.

"Why would you prefer that? Do you think that would signify a better or faster recovery for Nokia?"

Susan, Yes. Hence they can targeted all level or flavor of customers. The same strategy has adopted by Samsung.

I agree with you Susan.

If China can be captured then other huge markets like India where Nokia has a good following can surely be recaptured if the right product at right price is made available by Nokia in feature phones as well as smart phones. Especially the feature phones still have a good market potential in India especially in rural parts where the basic functionality is more important than the gizmos.

You're welcome, Jacob. 

" But i personally prefer that they have to come up with various other OS based products with Android, Windows, Symbian etc, like LG and Samsung."

Why would you prefer that? Do you think that would signify a better or faster recovery for Nokia?

Susan, thanks for the links. It's happy to see that Nokia is performing well and to be proud as a Nokia E5 customer. But i personally prefer that they have to come up with various other OS based products with Android, Windows, Symbian etc, like LG and Samsung.

Prabhakar, 

I am you like the news. :)

"China is a huge market for mobiles and the Chinese are cost conscious consumers. If the Nokia is able to place itself between Samsung and Apple with all the local brands trailing then it is surely a good revival sign for Nokia."

Yes, exactly. And I believe that after China, other markets willl equally have good reactions. What do you think about this?

This is really a promising news for NOKIA lovers like me. China is a huge market for mobiles and the Chinese are cost conscious consumers. If the Nokia is able to place itself between Samsung and Apple with all the local brands trailing then it is surely a good revival sign for Nokia.

t.alex, 

What makes you think that? Did you check the link to the survey, and the other links? The results would have been different if Chinese customers would prefer local brands. Samsung, Nokia, and Apple --in that order-- are the three most preferred brands in China.

I am not sure Susan. I belive chinese customers would prefer home-grown brands.

SP, 

Where do you see management and engineering issues? Are you referring to Nokia or to Jolla?
