“Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) – Nokia Oyj, the world’s biggest maker of mobile phones, had its first net loss since the company began reporting quarterly in 1996, hurt by costs related to a joint venture with  Siemens AG and weaker demand.

The net loss totaled 559 million euros ($834 million), after a profit of 1.09 billion euros a year earlier.”

Nokia also said that its smartphone market share dropped to 35% versus 41% in the previous quarter. 6% drop within the last 3 months is not normal at all.. its like 6% of the Nokia smartphones owners switched to another brand.

Blackberry’s life under threat

Nokia, the giant mobile manufacturer is willing to fight back the blackberry’s hype by establishing its own mailing network service. for now they’ve released the beta version of their application. you just need to sign-up and get the software on your Nokia device and start getting your e-mails to your mobile. you can add up to 10 e-mail addresses to your account.

Will this be the ending of blackberry’s life? since blackberry does not have any unique advantage over other devices except for the mailing service which will be ended by the introduction of the new Nokia service.

I tried this service for a month now and it is really great having all my emails delivered without having to do it manually. A super alternative for the blacberry.

 

Give it a try.  Nokia Messaging Service
