snydeq writes “Mikael Ricknäs reports how Nokia can turn around its three-year slide in the mobile market — one that has transformed the company’s iconic N95 into a distant memory given the pace of innovation at Apple and around Android. Completely underestimating the impact of the iPhone, Nokia took too long to realize that Symbian’s lack of touch capabilities would hinder its ability to compete in the smartphone market. Moreover, the company’s move to open source the OS has significantly slowed down Symbian’s development, according to analysts, leaving Nokia with both a lack of support from other vendors and a platform on which competitors can keep a close eye. Meanwhile, developer interest in Nokia’s Ovi app store is nearly nonexistent. ‘Nokia’s problems are still fixable but the window is closing. I am not optimistic that they will be fixed in 2010 because there isn’t much time left; if they aren’t fixed in 2011, Nokia will be in big trouble.’”
