ReutersNokia is going to introduce many new phone models through US carriers in coming months to grab a bigger share of the lucrative mobile phone market, the Finnish phone maker said on Monday.
Nokia sells 40 per cent of all phones sold globally, but in the United States its share has been staggering around 10 per cent as the Finnish firm has dropped own production of phones using CDMA technology, popular in the US.
Finnish daily Helsingin Sanomat quoted Nokia chief designer as saying design cooperation with US operators will bear fruit soon.
"In the next few months (US) operators will carry a lot of new products from us," Alastair Curtis told the paper.
A Nokia spokesman said the company would introduce a number of new models in the United States this year -- including CDMA phones, models tailored for the US carriers and phones sold globally.
As a loyal Nokia customer, this is great news, I am annoyed at the lack of mid-range Nokia phones available in CDMA flavour, to the point where I am delaying updating my handset for as long as possible.
