While the Finnish smartphone maker attempts to conquer the US market, back in Europe, operators have suggested that Nokia smartphones don't sell because of their OS.
"If the Lumia with the same hardware came with Android in it and not Windows, it would be much easier to sell," explained sources.
The fact that "no one comes into the store and asks for a Windows phone" is made even worse by additional issues. Many voices within the tech media community point out that Nokia has failed to deliver innovative smartphones, and instead, put on the market smartphones which occasionally contain issues relating to battery, connectivity or software.
Under these circumstances, Nokia's determination to accomplish its mission and to restore its credibility could potentially hit a bump.
Carriers are looking for a strong alternative for Apple and Android smartphones. Not only do they want to expand their offer, but to also gain a stronger position in negotiations. In order to hold their grounds in front of Apple's officials, the operators need an alternative that will sellwell.
At the moment, Nokia's smartphones are not effective weapons. Could the crazy scenario Nokia-Android sell better than the Nokia-Windows Phone?
