The fall of Nokia and the rise of IOS and android OS
In 1898, Nokia was set up in Finland, in the 1990s, it became the world largest cell phone producer. For a long time, it has been the giant of cell phone industry, Motorola, Samsung are always pacing after it.
But now, things have changed, it is no longer the giant of the cell phone industry, as we know, it has quit from the stock market which may be beneficial for them and is a better choice for the fall. We have to admit that android OS and IOS is quite powerful and aggressive that a giant of cell phone for 100 years has fallen in less than 3 years. Now the cell phone industry is the divided by iphone and the android smart phones.
From the online shop, we can figure something out, search from taobao.com of the cell phone selling, you will find that android cell phones sell best on the online B2C website, before, many bulk Wholesale supplier sell China copy phones on the website with large quantities, but now, with the smart phones becoming popular, the China copy phones no longer rank first of the online shop.
For the sake of android OS, Motorola and Samsung have grown the sales of the Moto phones and Samsung phones have increased a lot in the last years. Many of them are sold on the website like taobao.com and amazon.com.
The suppliers have various ways of getting the phones although they are not the official suppliers of the cell phone company. Many of them get the cell phones of EU version or US version or HK version and root the cell phones with the China mainland system, and then sell them at very cheap price which may be lower for 1000 RMB than the price of a cell phone in the official authorization shops. And also there are many cell phones locked with a mobile supplier like AT&T, Verizon and T-mobile. And the suppliers can root these phones to make them becomeUnlocked Phones by which way Chinese buyers can use these phones in mainland China. So you have to admit that the Chinese are indeed great for doing things like this. They can think out many methods and ways to earn money from some security loopholes.
With the android phone becoming hot on the market, many China Electronics Wholesale are setting foot in this market, hoping to make some money, as the android OS is a open source system, so everyone can use it.
As I know, a lot of android smart phones are made in Guangdong of China brands, the producers sell them on the B2C website, taobao.com and some have their own website mainly toward the western customers the prices of which are quite lower and cheaper than the famous brands cell phones, as the Motorola, Samsung and HTC.
At the same time, many IT workers work on the android apps and IOS apps to make money, many of them gain success, the angry birds is a positive example. It has been downloaded a several billion times on IOS and android OS. Also there are many other examples, here I will not list any more.
We here feel sorry for the giant’s fall but at the same feel happy for the rise of new technology and innovation of the IOS and android OS.
