Are you offending Nokia in your blogs without any reason ?
Are you just tweeting like “Symbian is dead” without using the brain to defend it ?
Are you predicting that Apple iPhone will rule the world soon ?
Are you suffering by Anti Nokia Syndrome ?
My Twitter time line is flooded with lot of tweets about an article “Why we blame Nokia?” written by the_ultimate111 at Livejournal.com . It is like slapping on your face ,the way this guy presented the truths .There are lot “yes I never noticed” types of truths and facts about Nokia.
The strategy planning of Nokia
Nokia started in 1865 as a paper mill and grown little by little reached this current position as a global leader of mobile phone because of the Vision it had.
So ,Nokia should have had a vision and the strategy to achieve it ! true.
1. Nokia is a major corporation and a quite recognized brand, which can be compared to Coca-Cola in terms of global penetration. Practically it is hard to find people in the world, who have access to cellular communication and aren’t aware of or haven’t used Nokia products. It appears that there is maximum people in the world, who have their opinion on Nokia products either it is positive or negative.
2. Nokia almost ultimately controlled the world’s cell phone market for more than a decade. People tend to think of Nokia as an undisputed global leader, so any negative information about it, no matter of its nature or impact is perceived as a sign of the company’s decline, regardless of what is really happening. For example the news about reformatting Ovi Music service are not negative, but it was perceived as negative just because there was a word “closing”.
3. Generally, people can’t understand complicated process and see nuances. They don’t want to get deep into details of events and don’t want to rank different factors according to their real importance.
4. People can’t understand that success and failure story have their temporal and relative dimensions. Many people tend to think that graphics showing up or showing down are illustrating a trend which will work forever, not realizing that it’s always a temporal phenomenon. – Written by the_ultimate111
