Whɿlɟ Nokia remains the 800-pound gorilla in the mobile phone market, ɿt is under intense pressure from the
growth of the iPhone and Android platforms, and ɫȠȣld soon come under additional pressure from the
resurgence of Microsoft and BlackBerry.
Nokia vice president of mobile services Tero Ojanpera recently sat down with CNET¶s Molly Wood tȠ talk ɚbȠȣt
the current state of the mobile market and Nokia¶s lɚrgɟr strategy. Aided bɭ reader emails, Molly did an
excellent job in thɿɾ 18-minute interview of challenging Ojanpera with the tough qȣɟɾtɿȠnɾ ɚbȠȣt the challenges
thɚt Nokia is facing, including whether ɿt wɿll adopt Android, hȠw ɿt ɫɚn compete in apps, the company¶s internal
turmoil, and its limited penetration in the U.S. market.
Ojanpera dodged a number of the qȣɟɾtɿȠnɾ and seemed a lɿttlɟ bit in denial ɚbȠȣt the urgency of the situation
for Nokia, but hɟ did share ɾȠmɟ useful information. Hɟ made ɿt clear thɚt Nokia is committed tȠ a two OS
strategy (Symbian and MeeGo) and hɟ ɾɚɿd thɚt the company is preparing tȠ partner with GSM carriers in the
U.S. tȠ offer discounted phones thɚt ɫɚn compete on price with the top U.S. devices.
Watch the video and thɟn jump into the discussion tȠ share ɭȠȣr thoughts on Nokia¶s strategy.

As part of Nokia¶s plan to reach out to the next billion consumers, the mobile
phone maker has announced its plans to invest USD 280 million to establish a
new manufacturing unit near Hanoi in northern Vietnam.
Representatives of the Vietnamese government and Nokia had already signed a
Memorandum of Understanding marking the beginning of a phase of
preparations ahead of the targeted opening of the new plant in 2012.

With a wide range of price competitive phones (feature phones), Nokia has
always shown strength in growing economies and emerging markets. The
company is planning to extend its reach by meeting growing mobile phone
demand through affordable feature phones. On top of that, the new plant is also
tasked to deliver what Nokia describes as ³a contemporary mobile experience´.
³I am extremely excited about this opportunity and about the support and
commitment that Vietnam has offered to Nokia. This new manufacturing site will
play a key role in our effort to p p   
,´ said Juha
Putkiranta, Senior Vice President at Nokia.
The opportunity is huge: Almost 90% of the world¶s population lives within range
of a mobile signal, yet there are 3.2 billion people who do not own a mobile
device. And of the estimated 3.7 billion people who do own a mobile device, fewer
than half use it to access the Internet. Apparently, Nokia is looking to target 3.2
billion non-mobile user and also the existing 1.8 billion non-mobile Internet
users.

Talking about the opportunities in the mobile Internet market, Esko Aho,
Executive Vice President, Nokia said, ´Only about 30 percent of the world¶s
population is currently online, and we believe we can play a major role in
connecting the next billion not just to their first phone but to their first internet
and application experience.´
From what it looks, it is a win-win situation for both Nokia and Vietnam. Can
Nokia connect the next billion people? Or would other alternatives like HTC,
Motorola or even Apple¶s rumored smaller and cheaper iPhone ruin Nokia¶s plan?
We shall witness an exciting battle between phone makers in Vietnam and South
East Asia.

okia targets new handsets at emerging markets


Thursday, 24 June 2010 23:00 | James Barton

As part of its C-series range, Nokia has released four new low-cost handsets which are being targeted at
emerging markets.
The cheapest of the new models is the C1-00, which is priced at only EUR30 without
taxes and subsidies. This model also features brand new technology in the form of a 2-in-1 double SIM
solution. Nokia VP Alex Lambeek explains the advantages of this new system: "By simply holding down a key,
people are able to switch between SIM cards. This enables them to take advantage of reduced call rates,
flexibility when travelling from one country to another, or helps with sharing a phone within a family and still use
their own SIM.´
Nokia claims that the C1-00 can boast the longest battery life of any Nokia device, with a standby battery time
of up to six weeks. The device was designed for use in regions where electricity supplies are unreliable, or
where access to electricity is limited.
The second handset ± the Nokia C2 - also features dual SIM, but can keep both SIM cards active; meaning
calls and text messages can come to either number while the phone is on. It is priced at EUR45.
The two other handsets are both part of the Nokia C1 range (C1-01 and C1-02) and are both single SIM
products. The Nokia C1 (C1-00) is expected to ship in the third quarter of 2010, with the Nokia C1 (C1-01) in
the early fourth quarter, and the Nokia C1 (C1-02) and Nokia C2 towards the end of the fourth quarter.
Alongside the new handsets, Nokia also unveiled the Nokia Bicycle Charger Kit, which uses a dynamo - a small
electrical generator ± to use the movement of the wheels to charge a handset fixed to a bike. The kit uses the
standard 2mm charging jack used in most Nokia mobile phones. ³This is a great solution to a real challenge,
whether people will use it due to limited access to electricity, or to be more environmentally responsible," said
Lambeek. The kit will be available before the end of the year.

Micromax, the Gurgaon-based mobile handset manufacturer, says that it is targeting revenues of
aboutÊ Ê3,000 crore in 2010-11.
In conversation with Telecom Yatra, Vikas Jain, business director, Micromax, said, "On the revenue
side, we were atÊ Ê260 crore last year (2008-09) and this year (2009-10), we intend to close at
aboutÊ Ê1,500 crore. Next year, we are looking at revenue of aboutÊ Ê3,000 crore, which is
about 100 per cent growth (over the previous year)."

Micromax has also started rolling out its international operations. Jain said, "We are looking at three
areas ± SAARC, Middle East, Africa and Latin America. We are already operational in Nepal and we
should be operational in Bangladesh by March. We will be going to UAE through Dubai; Africa
through Western part of Africa and Latin America through Brazil."

The company is planning to roll out a pilot application store within the next two months. Jain said,
"We will be using our in-house platform and applications for the store. We are incubating a complete
app store, which will be supported on all Micromax phones."

Micromax has earmarked a budget ofÊ Ê100 crore for branding and marketing its products.
According to Jain, Micromax is planning to spend 70 per cent of the budget on above the line (ATL),
and the remainder on below the line (BTL) marketing. He said, "We have moved from rural to urban
areas and understand that we have to showcase our handsets a little bit more now, than what we
were doing in rural areas, as most customers in urban areas are brand conscious. We will be
focusing a lot on in-store demonstrations; sports, especially cricket and music as we are launching a
separate series of music phones."

Micromax currently has tie-ups with Tata Docomo, Airtel, BSNL, Reliance Communications, Tata
Teleservices and MTS, and is in talks with Aircel and Idea Cellular. The company sells handsets in
the range ofÊ Ê1,600 toÊ Ê16,000.
The company's current product portfolio consists of both GSM and CDMA handsets. Jain said that
the focus is mostly on GSM as it will keep growing, as well as on CDMA. Micromax will be bringing a
lot of 3G handsets shortly. It will also launch smartphones, both in GSM and CDMA space. He
added, "We have just introduced one Windows-based smartphone in the GSM space, and will now
be using our R&D to launch Android because of its obvious advantage of being a freeware."
