nokia old logoIt’s almost a decade now on the reign of the biggest mobile manufacturer, Nokia. But on the past years they have been struggling for staying in the top together with the Symbian OS foundation especially outside Asia. Like on the Europe where Apple and other manufacturers made to topple the lead on the smartphone area. But the question is, how do Nokia still stay on the top and leads many steps from its competitors? The answers is because of Asia.

On the latest report, Nokia is leading on smartphone sales in China for Q2. With the 46% sales from Q1, the total number of units for Nokia is 3.6million or 26.7% out of the total smartphone sales. Samsung got the 2nd place with 2.41 million units representing 17.9%. Just imagine that Nokia have the biggest rivals in China, like the cloned devices, China manufacturers, and other well-known companies just like Samsung. But still they got the gold pot.

Another Nokia success is in the smartphone OS shares where the Symbian have the highest comprising near to half of the total. Here’s what the ladder board looks like compared to the other OS vendors like Apple iOS and Android.

Currently their markets shares (Q2) are as follows:
Symbian …………….43%

Android ……………..19%

RIM …………………..19%

Apple …………………14%

Windows Mobile …..2%
Linux Mobile ………..1%

Bada …………………….0%

Palm …………………….0%

Phone 7 ………………(not launched yet, expected Q4 2010)

MeeGo ……………….(not launched yet, expected Q1 2011)

Symbian Sweet spotSo what’s the business with these results? It says that Android is the biggest competitor, but it’s seen to Nokia that they are doing the right thing for pushing the Symbian in the biggest OS mill. And don’t forget for the upcoming Nokia N8 with the first Symbian^3 platform, though. What Nokia have is the key to remain success and that’s Asia.
