    Yes, this is true.

    The problem for Nokia is that there are many manufacturers in east Asia who can make cheaper phones with better quality and more features.

    Siemens just cut a deal with Ningbo. There are at least another half dozen handset makers who will be taking away Nokia's low end market share.

    NOK poked its head above 14 today, but I doubt that it will hit 16 anytime soon. (It was 23 on March 8th).

    Would like to know what phones are not that good from Nokia?? It could be CDMA or GSM. I almost never hear in Iowa or in Utah any problems with phone that has came from Nokia; until they get to be 4 years old or so. My brother in Iowa beat his Nokia like there is no tomorrow until he put it in the toilet and it still worked :boxingsmi except he could not use all the numbers on the dail nor see the screen at 100%. I know of many phones from Motorola, Sharp, Audiovox a few from Kyocera that were crap! :banghead:

    Very much agreed, in fact, those of us willing to pay that kind of money, and more are probably the minority.

    what about the v60p?



    i personally dont like Nokia phones. never have. i never understood why they were so popular other than being cheap. they are all the same. just different sizes. thats the way i look at Nokia phones.

    i hope they do start making some good CDMA phones for VZW. then i have something to hand out for free other than the Nokia 2285. People expect Nokias to be free, so i make them free. They also get the Mv120e free but only because its junk and i'd feel bad charging someone for it. i hope those disappear from the shelves soon.

    sorry to say this, but the V60p is an ugly phone. it is too thick, too fat, to uncomfortable. besides, if verizon wanted to come up with a new thing (push to talk) they should have asked motorola to make them a fresh new phone instead of taking one that was already there (with a lot of complains about the antenna) and put some more chips inside.

    i work at radio shack, where we sell verizon and sprint. we carry the V60p, but we do not sell it. no one wants it.

    To grab market share in Asia, Nokia will have to pull something (or a few things) special out of their magic hat. That and an agressive marketing campaign.

    I agree with Kranium007. The Nokia 2285 is the only handset that can be given away. I rarely see them come back, though. They seem to be pretty good little phones, although they look and feel like crap.

    Yes I agree that the looks of the Nokia leave a lot to be desired. I can honestly say that, even though, I believed the only thing important to me was the RF, voice quality, the 3589i, with its reportedly great reception is so plain looking that I decided to go with another mfg.

    Well this thread is two years old, but I guess the answer is...No, Nokia will not dominate CDMA. ;)

    They have already resorted to outsourcing CDMA phones... the "Nokia" 6305i and the 6215i on VZW are the latest. From what I hear, these are rebranded Pantech devices. These phones look nothing like a real Nokia.
    If you are a Nokia CDMA fan, get the real mccoys while you can! lol

    As far as CDMA this goes counter to everything Nokia has been doing lately. They canceled the joint venture they had with Sanyo for CDMA handsets as they don't see much of a future for them in it and will likely stay focused on developing GSM handsets.
