Nokia 6.8 28.5%
Samsung 4.2 17.6%
Others 12.9 54.0%

In a statement, Strategy Analytics analyst Tom Kang said the growing usage of smartphones in China was owing to aggressive subsidizing by operators of high-end models such as Apple Inc.’s iPhone, as well as the growing availability of low-cost models running Google Inc.’s Android platform.

Nokia Corp. had the largest share of China’s smartphone market in the third quarter, with 29%. Strategy Analytics added that both Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and Apple are chasing hard.

  • The love affair between Microsoft and Nokia that has transpired over the last year has finally born fruit.
  • The Lumia 800, Nokia’s first smartphone that runs Windows Phone 7, is set to hit some retail chains in the U.K. on Wednesday.
  • Nokia says the Lumia 800 and the Lumia 710, which is the lower-end version, will arrive in other European countries this month and in parts of Asia by the end of the year. They won’t come to the United States until early next year, the company says.
  • After testing the Lumia 800 for a week, I have been impressed by some aspects and confused by others. For example, I like the bold hardware design, but I don’t understand why I have to choose between two apps for music, two for downloading more apps and three for maps.
  • Microsoft and Nokia seemed well matched when the partnership was formally announced to much fanfare in February. The software giant’s Windows Phone platform is well made but has attracted little attention from phone manufacturers, app developers or customers.
  • Nokia builds exquisite hardware, but its existing lineup of smartphones relied on an outmoded operating system called Symbian. The company is still the world’s largest maker of mobile phones by volume, but it has very little presence in the United States or in the minds of early adopters. Nokia sees the Lumia 800 as a chance to change that.
  • The phone is quite solidly built. The rounded, unibody exterior, which is topped with a 3.7-inch touchscreen, is attractive and comfortable to hold. The polycarbonate material looks and feels somewhere in between plastic and metal. It is not slippery. The version I have been testing has a dark gray finish, which resembles a granite stone.

Global branded tablet PC shipments in the fourth quarter are not expected to see growth creating concerns among market watchers whether the tablet PC market has already reached saturation, but Digitimes Research senior analyst James Wang believes that the zero-growth in the fourth quarter is the joint effect of Japan’s earthquake on March 11 and the global economic downturn, which should not become an obstacle that restrains the tablet PC market’s growth in the future.

 

Since the global economy in 2012 will not be as bad as expected; demand for mobile devices is growing steadily; tablet PCs’ performance/price ratio is rising; and Android tablet PC’s hardware and software designs are improving, the four major drivers will help global branded tablet PC shipments reach 95.1 million units with a growth of 60% on year.

 

In the next three years, smartphone shipments will reach as high as one billion units, and taking smartphones as a base, tablet PC shipments in 2014 are estimated to reach 170 million units, a volume about 70% of the estimated total notebook shipments.

 

Combined shipments of tablet PCs and notebook (including netbook), a new category named mobile computing devices, will enjoy a CAGR of 17.3% from 2011-2014.

  • Nokia Siemens Networks is in talks with Indian wireless broadband players to set up the back-end infrastructure to help them provide broadband wireless access (BWA) services in the country.
  • Five companies—Reliance Industries, Bharti Airtel, Aircel, Tikona and Qualcomm—had won BWA licences and spectrum in the auctions by the government last year. Of these, Reliance Industries and Aircel are known to be conducting vendor valuations.
  • Nokia Siemens Networks is also looking to sell devices it has designed for the TD-LTE, a version of the long-term evolution (LTE) technology, for BWA services. The devices include dongles and modems, which would be sold by Nokia Siemens Networks to operators, who would then bundle them in offers to consumers.
  • Nokia Siemens Networks, which recently acquired the devices business of Motorola, is strengthening its devices portfolio with specialised, next-generation TD-LTE devices. The company sees an opportunity in India, where companies have already spoken of their allegiance to technology, which is favouring the system to provide high-speed broadband (as high as 30 mbps) using BWA spectrum.

  • Nokia Siemens Networks has launched three new 4G devices at PT Expo Comm in Beijing, China. The devices allow consumers to enjoy broadband access at up to 102 Mbps (Megabits per second) downlink and 51 Mbps uplink to support data-intensive services on TD-LTE (time division-duplex, long term evolution) networks.

 

  • A plug-and-play USB dongle, the Nokia Siemens Networks USB-lte 7210 offers mobile broadband to laptops and compatible tablets whilst on the move. Nokia Siemens Networks CPEi-lte 7212 is a wireless router built for indoor use that provides fixed wireless connectivity to TD-LTE services via WiFi or Ethernet. A further wireless router, Nokia Siemens Networks CPEo-lte 7210, built to withstand the weather and be mounted outdoors, can also provide broadband access. The devices are commercially available to support 4G services using the TD-LTE standard in the 2.3 GHz and 2.6 GHz bands allocated for wireless broadband in many parts of the globe.

 

  • The availability of compatible devices in the market can be a significant factor in the uptake of a new wireless technology. By providing devices directly, we allow our customers to offer complete broadband packages to consumers, which in turn would speed up the adoption of new 4G services,” said Ken Riordan, head of devices at Nokia Siemens Networks.
