SWOT Analysis of Nokia Models
Failures Of Nokia
Failure of Symbian OS : - lack of applications and UI (User
Wrong Deal with Windows : - Windows which was new in the
field to regain its status was the biggest mistake the company
NOKIA Became Laggard in Smartphone Market : -
Stiff competition from Samsung and Apple, and
lack on focus on innovation was the big reason
of collapse.

branding using iPhone as an umbrella brand and then building
subsequent models each year. Samsung was quick in identifying

and recently the Lumia series, but they failed to create buzz
among customers
