Nokia regresses adopting the Apple Way!
With Nokia taking a beating in the smartfone market with it’s Symbian & Windows OS, it was time to get back in the game. Now Nokia had two options – go the glamorous way as in Apple’s iOS or go for the “smart” Google’s Android, Nokia chose the former – another mistake!
Nokia in it’s new S40 series failed to understand what a smartfone means – A smarter device not a more attractive one. Take for example the Nokia Store – better interface indeed – but where are the apps. What kind of smartfone it is which can’t play any of the Office files. But that’s not the end of story. I got a mail from Nokia about the extensionsit can’t support. But what I find few months later – my device can support all the Office files – courtesy an app just released, though it was one of the worst apps of its kind. Clearly, indicating how crippled the hopes of Nokia’s own smartfone OS is! Plus rejection of .sis files meant, no pirated apps available either.
So not in agreement with the Nokia’s tagline – Ready to take on the world!
