Nokia – Challenges for Developing A New Trail of Nokia SmartPhone OS –
Brian Antao, Ph. D. (EECS, Vanderbilt University)
1. Nokia has a rich Tradition and Wealth of Experience of Developing a long History of Mobile
Phones that for long held a majority share of the market place.
2. The SmartPhone – Phone strategy entry Strategy was a bit tardy as Apple and Samsung were
ahead of the game.
3. But since Nokia the brand is such a house-Hold name the Smart-Phone strategy should have
been more carefully plotted.
4. The SmartPhone Strategy to utilise the Microsoft Mobile OS is but Questionable for the
following reasons –
a. Microsoft may have been developing the Personal Computer Line of OS, but just
extension to the Mobile domain may not be that simplistic.
b. Besides the Microsoft Mobile OS is not that widely used an OS, and it may just have
been a Ploy used by Microsoft Corp. itself, to simply get Nokia as its leading
Customer for its Mobile OS, and thus through Nokia capture the big segment of the
Smart-Phone Market.... Have got to watch for these convoluted Market
A Recommended Strategy as the Future Direction to transition to:
1. Develop an All-New NOKIA Smart-Phone OS with the Distinct Nokia Personality from
ground Up. This Development does not have to be starting from ground ZERO ... but at the
same time don't have to re-invent the Wheel, and re-utilise components and re-factor and
redesign these to meet the overall Consistent Design Goal for the new Smart-Phone OS
which but is the Distinct Nokia Personality. First Develop a Core SmartPhone OS Base
Library that is Generic that is then specialised for each Nokia SmartPhone Family through
2. With the Development of each Nokia Product Family Tie in also the Development of
the OS, across the board ... This is the Missing piece that has been grossly overlooked by all
these LAZY Good-For Nothing looking for Short-Cuts Sloths in to make the fast-buck originating
from perhaps the Motorola-IBM-Apple Cartel like the Columbia Drug Dealing Cartel their Psyche is !!
3. This Development should be possible to be done in the shortest but the most optimal time.
4. The Smart-Phone OS should distinct from iOS and Android ... but of-course in-order to also
avoid Patent Litigations.
I am sure the above recommendation would be appreciated by Nokia Research and Development,
and would be “Appreciated as Useful Consultation” – If possible to be adopted for utilisation,
Monetary compensation in the form of appropriate consultancy fees would be nice !
