Samsung Jack i637 Windows Mobile Smartphone Video Review

The Finnish has recognized no longer be number one of the mobile in the world. Samsung has taken the reading. In its descent to the underworld, Nokia kept a pride, a sort of small light which recalled the hours of glory of the empire of the Finnish: it remained number one in the world of the mobile in number of units sold. But this is no longer the case, according to the non-executive chairman of the group, Jorma Ollila. This former P-DG of Nokia has in effect recognized on the Finnish television channel MTV3 that "Nokia has been the number one (of mobile telephony) and is still able to regain". The south Korean Samsung takes the top spot of the podium. With a very wide range spread of small functional mobile smartphones to ultra-sophisticated, the consumer electronics giant has positioned itself to the times on the emerging markets and in the markets very profitable or multifunction phones are sold by the millions. It is in fact ex-aequo with Apple - and its iPhone - in terms of turnover on the smartphone sector. "There will soon be a reorganization" Nokia has been the number one mobile for 14 years, so it is the end of an era for the group, including the fall does not yet seem to be stopped. The group has elapsed 82.7 million phones in the first quarter 2012, up from 108.5 million a year ago. Since a few years, the arrival of the smartphones has transformed the market of the mobile, and Nokia has not been able to take the turn to face to Apple, Samsung, Motorola, or still HTC.
