Cellphones can be considered a Microsoft operating system, in that they are too big for the average user to understand them. The first iPhone I bought required a good deal of know-how from a Microsoft employee before I was able to make it do something useful, and there is no guarantee that any model of phone I might buy will not require the same user assistance. In fact, I suspect that Microsoft has studied the challenges and issues of a mobile phone and come up with the best solutions possible for making devices like this as attractive and functional as possible. All Windows phones use the Windows operating system which is the basis for all Microsoft products.
Now, the cell phone brand’s review, like Nokia, is not my personal opinion. It is just a review of the competitive landscape and the successes and failures of those brands that have successfully proven themselves. In other words, it is not my opinion, but a product review.
And, like any company, the manufacturers of cell phone brands experience the same road bumps and turnarounds that regular businesses do. Sometimes, the gains are great, and the companies that are first to market benefit greatly. At other times, the limited resources are spent more efficiently and effectively, and the company benefits in a much more direct and more important way. I’m sure the Nokia Lumia 920 will be the product that consumers see or buy, most eagerly.
I really have no experience in the market, other than cell phone brands reviews, and that has become less than useful lately as I do my best to get as much information as possible about a new product. Just read the manufacturer’s brand page, look at a picture, and then make your decision.
Many manufacturers now manufacture their own smart phones, which means they put in hundreds of features into their own phones, and each one of these features costs money. They usually make a decent profit, but the profits are often large enough to justify the expense. As a consumer, I’d rather buy a cheap phone from a well known manufacturer, but I’d rather pay a small fee for a great feature in a smart phone then buy the second most expensive phone in the world, because I’m going to use it every day.
That is what the Nokia brand name does: they give their customers a wide variety of choices that makes them special. They also give their customers the opportunity to make better decisions when buying cell phones than they would if they were buying a traditional phone from a major manufacturer. They can easily make any existing phone better with a software update, or by adding more functionality to it with a different phone.
In some cases, the cell phone brands reviews are so positive that consumers have nothing else to do than get themselves a Nokia phone. They won’t be disappointed. In fact, I think some of the negative coverage may be due to the fact that many people don’t know much about the Nokia brand.
Then again, when you compare the popularity of the Nokia brand with that of other well known brands, the comparison is not as obvious as it used to be. Consider the current wave of BlackBerry smartphones, for example. Those made by Nokia compete against Motorola, Samsung, HTC, and others, but many consumers simply do not understand why the BlackBerry should be higher on the list than the Nokia 3.2.
Why? Because of the name recognition, of course. The Nokia brand name has been around for awhile, and the brand is recognizable to most consumers.
It is quite possible that the Nokia brand name, and the success of its cell phone offerings will keep the product coming back in the future. as consumers find them to be more user friendly and more functional than their competition.
