Nokia To Expand US Lineup
Jan 28, 2005, 5:39 PM by (staff)
Nokia is making a commitment to renew their US phone line-up in order to regain market share that has recently trickled away. While reviewing fourth quarter results, CEO Jorma Ollila admitted a weak selection of CDMA models and other holes in the company's portfolio have hurt its position in North America. U.S. Subscribers should see a more diverse selection from Nokia including customized models for certain carriers, according to a company spokesman. In addition to new form factors and features, the CDMA line up will eventually include EV-DO models as well, despite Nokia's earlier resistance to the technology.
