Nokia & Facebook Friends, Maybe
I'm honestly at a lost when it comes to Nokia these days. Nokia has spent millions on new acquisitions to develop their own offerings for everything Nokia. The problem of course while Nokia is the largest single mobile device manufacture globally the adoption of their services has been anything but stellar. At the same time Nokia seems to baulk at participating with the services that are in demand among the very same consumers. Nokia's Share on Ovi for example is quite late to the media sharing arena, severely lagging behind popular services such as Flickr , Smugmug , Photobucket , ImageSharing . To compound the problem outside of Nokia's devices, their services are largely if not completely incompatible, unsupported and unused. I can appreciate Nokia wanting to develop services to compliment their products but at the same time they cannot bury their heads in the sand and ignore the world around them. Finland may be the center of the Nokia universe but to most of the world it is simply a small, albiet beautiful, country stretching from the
North Baltic Sea to the Arctic circle.
