The US has always been a bit of a thorn in the side of the US – it’s never managed to get a real foothold over there and it’s been losing market share hand over fist. But not one to give up, it’s revealed that it’s planning to get more handsets into the US, according to Reuters, which quotes Nokia chief designer Alastair Curtis as saying: “In the next few months [US] operators will carry a lot of new products from us” and it will be producing a raft of new products specifically for American consumers, with most of its efforts going into CDMA devices.
It’s probably a good time for Nokia to go after the US: Motorola’s still struggling to come up with successor to the Razr and Samsung could be on the back foot after losing its CEO recently. That said, Nokia’s previously efforts into CDMA haven’t really done it justice: it called off a CDMA device partnership with Sanyo last year and at the time indicated it would be leaving CDMA alone for the foreseeable. It looks like Nokia is serious about having another crack at the US: can’t wait to see what it comes up with.
