You are right, Junko. Also I feel Nokia intentionally or unintentionally got late in aggressive marketing for smartphones. With having successful and faithful customers database in normal phones, if they had planned well for smartphones, they could have easily given competition to Samsung especially in Asian countries.
I don't understand why Nokia doesn't enter the high-end Android smart phone market. Motorola is gone, and yes Nokia still needs to beat Samsung and other Asia-based phone manufacturers. However, Nokia still has great brand recognition, which is as good as, if not better than, those brands it needs to beat. It has a chance, if it does not make more mistakes.
Quite agree Nokia made it too late to get into smartphone with Android. But looking at Nokia's durability in phones it will definitely give a competition to others. I am for Nokia's phones. They never fail.
