    Urgent Need For Paradigm Shift in Nokia Development of Product Families --

    Nokia – Challenges for Developing A New Trail of Nokia SmartPhone OS –
    By
    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
    manipulations ....

    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
    Design Reuse.
    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 !

    In case you haven't heard, Nokia already sold off its phone manufacturing, engineering, sales & marketing to Microsoft as Microsoft Mobile (and Microsoft recently, last month, said it'd lay off about half the people it acquired). The deal was completed a few months ago. What used to be Nokia's phone operations, is now run as "Microsoft Mobile" daughter(?) company by Microsoft Corp. Nokia still has its networks business, its maps business (known for some time as Ovi Maps, then as Nokia Maps, and nowadays as HERE), and some R&D and IPR licensing.

    Earlier (in the last few years) Nokia has already sold off various parts related to mobile radio technology to STMicro, and later to Rensesas (who sold it off to Broadcom, who's now shutting down those operations. (Rumours are, that this might be in favour of Qualcomm for cellular technologies, while Broadcom concentrates on other areas such as WLAN or graphics).

    Before the Microsoft deal, Nokia also sold off the Qt technology (it acquired via Trolltech); first the PC/desktop technologies to Digia, then the mobile versions also to Digia. Some people transferred to Digia in the process as well, I think.

    All Symbian expertise, more or less, Nokia outsourced to Accenture, who's now laid off most of the former Nokia people, I imagine.

    In other words, Nokia is not going to become a significant mobile phone or smartphone OS maker again any time soon, I'm afraid. In a few years it may - by the contract with Microsoft - possible be allowed to begin again, but for now, it is not.

    And Microsoft probably is not interested in anything except Windows Phone (as it has already announced it'll cease the work on Nokia's Android-based product line, and I think also the Series 40/Asha phones).

    In other words, Nokia's remaining R&D is not likely to monitor this site extensively, and who's left, is doing R&D in other areas than smartphone operating systems these days.

    You may also not be aware of the fact that corporations like Nokia do not tend to pay for unsolicited strategic or other advice published on the internet. Consultation fees are paid when a contract for consultation has first been signed between the parties (before any work has been done/delivered), and then the consultant gets paid by invoice according to the rates in the contract (either just for work, or after specific milestones/deliverables).

    Maybe the Maemo/MeeGo experiment could be mentioned too as a close thing to a modern smartphone OS, independent from Apple/Google/Microsoft. After releasing the Nokia N9, it was dumped in favor of Windows Phone 7. So this was not recent news either (happened 3 years ago).

    Hi,
    I have'nt been keeping up with the News or the Developments of Nokia much in focus ... more so as Nokia had not been in the focus with the Smartphones and My attention was more drawn to the Smartphone leaders like Samsung and Sony ....
    And from what you describe with the Developments of Nokia .... looks like Someone like their ArchEnemy Motorola really did a big Raid on Nokia and really took them to the Cleaners ...
    What is that you describe ???
    A Complete Dis-integration of the Nokia Mobile Business into Chunks and Selling off !!
    Why was such a Dis-Integration of the Nokia Mobile Business into Chunks and Selling off Necessitated other than maybe some Rivalry and playing the TomFoolery of this Shits Motorola ???

    Cheers,
    --Brian Antao.

    Doings of Evil, Undead Motorola, indeed. Make sure that you are aware of that Motorola was acquired by Google 2.5 years ago, and some remains of it were passed to Lenovo in January, this year.
