Microsoft Owe Nokia For Delay in WP8 Official Launch
It’s obvious that Nokia would like to rebuild its kingdom through the introduction of WP8 series of smartphone especially the eyeball-catching Lumia 920. Due to the extreme pressure from Apple and Android, Nokia announced the cooperation with Microsoft at Feb 2011. At that time, Microsoft’s Windows Phone’s performance in the smartphone market was even worse, almost out. Despite the launch of the new WP7, it’s lack of support from end-line manufacturers.
In HTC, Samsung, LG and other manufacturers’ point of view, WP platform is only meant to establish balance cooperation relationship with Google, it serves no important role else. Nokia, in different point of view, has abandoned its own operating system – Meego & Symbian and fully support the promotion of WP system as well as to increase the WP application. So far, both side already come out with 100,000+ WP application. Before Nokia join the party, there are only 5000+ of WP application in the market.
Nokia had done too much for developing Window Phone but yet Microsoft have not officially launch the WP system. This decision bring great impact on Lumia 920 sales as well as impact on Nokia’s share market performance.
Since Microsoft have yet launch its Windows Phone 8 system officially, Nokia just cannot completely present the whole functionality of two Lumia series smartphone – Lumia 820 and Lumia 920. Although Lumia’s hardware design inspired the industry and consumers, Nokia does not give a specific delivery time as well as pricing due to the reason mentioned.
The sale of Lumia series will be affected since the market are saturated with the launch of Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 in the past two month. But the good news is that America’s largest telco –Verizon confirmed of its cooperation with Nokia on September 6,2012.
If WP8 could be outweigh iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3, then Nokia shall rebuild its empire on smartphone industry. Let’s look forward if it can be done by Lumia 920 by Nokia.
