Nokia, which once dominated the mobile phone market, lost the plot by not going for smartphones and lost its commanding lead. Now Nokia plans to make a comeback on the Chinese market with TD-SCDMA phones.
Note that TD-SCDMA is the local 3G mobile standard so no royalties have to be paid. It was thrust on China Mobile, which made the very best of a difficult task and responded very well.
TelcomPaper reports that Nokia will now partner with China Mobile and has already rolled out four TD-SCDMA devices. However, Samsung, quick off the mark, has already launched nine models and grabbed a 48.2% share of the TD-SCDMA market. Nokia has an uphill task ahead.
