Strong demand for smartphones gave a further boost to overall cellphone market volumes in January-March and made iPhone supplier Apple Inc a rare winner on the market
Nokia Oyj won’t ship MeeGo devices before 2011, Alberto Torres, the company’s executive vice president for MeeGo Computers, confirmed at a developer conference in Dublin today.
Yahoo Inc and Nokia Oyj said they would team up to boost their mobile Internet offerings, seeking to regain market share lost to rivals like Apple Inc and Google Inc.
Apple Inc on Tuesday questioned recent data showing smartphones using Google’s Android operating system surpassing iPhone sales in the United States, and said there are no signs that the competition is gaining in the smartphone market.
Smartphone shipments surged 50 percent in January through March versus a year ago, notching up the strongest growth in the last three years with Apple Inc and Nokia Oyj taking market share, a survey showed.
Nokia Oyj unveiled details of its first phone with new Symbian 3 software on Tuesday, designed to challenge the iPhone and Blackberry at the high-end of the market.
The U.S. International Trade Commission said on Friday it has agreed to investigate Apple Inc’s patent infringement complaint against Nokia Oyj, as the legal battle between the two technology heavyweights continues to play out.
