Every friend I tell about Nokia, they say “You know, you are wasting your time, Nokia is no more, World is taken over by Apple iPhones & Samsung Androids”. If you think the same may be you should read this and then you know why it still makes sense to go for Nokia phones.
When it comes to Phone manufacturing, all the phones are manufactured in the same plants of China. They nearly have same kind of hardware components. What is different in all these is the hardware design of the components and importance given to the quality of each component. Some manufacturer opt for Resistive touch screens to save cost, some have costly Capacitive screens to maintain quality. When you choose the brand, you actually choose the vendor who gives importance to quality of these components and who has years of experience in placing these components at right place so they sustain the jerks of life, heat of components and also last for longer duration.
- Apple iPhone is an American Phone which offers appox 3 years of phone life.
- Samsung is a Korean company which is well known for mass production & they have their own manufacturing plants. What Samsung doesn’t have is good software. That’s why they are acquiring Android from Google today . These phones are also targeted to last not for more than 2.5 years. If you brought an Android gingerbread phone today you wont be able to upgrade atleast for 18 months.
- Nokia is a Finland based company known for sturdy phone design with longer phone life. There are people who have 5 to 8 years old Nokia phones, they just work fine and do their job. Nokia made great affordable software known as Symbian, but it is lagging behind in the smart phone race. So Nokia tied up with Microsoft to provide competitive OS along with sturdy design.
Microsoft has history of making Mobile phone operating systems which were bundled on successful Mobile Models of Palm, HTC & HP in the past. Microsoft has invented all new design from scratch where they have kept user data at the center and build Metro interface to consume your data. Metro interface is supposed to be offering the best ever experience offered by Microsoft.
Combined with Sturdy Design of Nokia & age old experience and innovative Microsoft OS, Nokia Smartphones are today very competitive in price and offer state of art operating system. Nokia Lumia phones provide easy integration with other Microsoft applications like:
- Microsoft Window 8
- Microsoft Office
- Microsoft Exchange / Push Notifications.
- Microsoft XBox
Some of my friends also argue that “Microsoft doesn’t have many apps like Apple and Android”. Microsoft has about 1,00,000 apps which do perfect job what you are looking for. If you closely watch the Apple and Android markets you may find 50 apps with similar functionality resulting in crowded place.
With so many options of feature rich sturdy smart phones, Nokia would like to convey message to people to also adopt them in smart phone area. Thats where Nokia + Indiblogger team is coming together and creating the awareness about Nokia Phones and Fancy looking Accessories.
