How Nokia became a mobile handset powerhouse


Nokia_logoBusinessWeek put together a fantastic and informative article on Nokia yesterday: what a great read this morning. Although I’ve used the loaner N80 and N800, I really don’t know much about Nokia’s history or business model and this brief read was very enlightening. The beginning focuses on how Nokia is generally trouncing a perennial powerhouse, namely Motorola, but really explains why. Aside from the sheer number of handsets that cover every segment of the market, I was amazed to find that Nokia’s supply-chain management is considered by some analysts to be better than Wal-Mart’s and Toyota’s. Great story worth the browse.
