Remember Nokia? You must remember. My memory captured Nokia as one of the very first cellphones that I ever encountered (trying to be careful not to expose my age here). Those phones were the coolest. Not necessarily for the applications, or the capabilities, (I don’t remember these phones doing anything but making calls like house phones—maybe there were texting abilities) these phones were awesome because you could change the colors of the casing! This was the first venture into cellphone personalization. Wait, I almost forgot. If I remember correctly, Nokia was also responsible for the first compact cellphone. Before Nokia cellphones were still microwave sizes, right? Either way, this is to the extent that my Nokia knowledge goes. After the colored cases, Nokia (as far as I noticed) faded into oblivion. That is, until now.
The new smart phone to be released by Finnish giant Nokia Corp, the E7, will be delayed until after the holiday season. It seems a pretty risky economic move for the world’s largest handset manufacturer to make, especially since many retailers depend on the season to make their yearend budget targets. But Nokia is sticking to quality over the potential or sales this year.
When Apple released the iPad this last April, it was a milestone for the company.
