Nokia Is the Number One Windows Phone OEM, Says Middle East VP

When Nokia and Microsoft agreed to collaborate last year in February it was not sure which company was the other one’s safety belt; truth is Nokia needed to regain a huge chunk of the market lost and Microsoft needed a strong hardware partner to build the buzz for Windows Phone.

After launching the first Windows Phones — the Lumia 800 together with the Lumia 710 — five months ago, Nokia is confident. “Our strategy is working. When we formed an alliance last year with Microsoft our intention was to regain lost share. After one year, it is still working. We are the number one Windows phone in volume in the world. Our momentum is accelerating”, said Rom Farrell, vice-president of Nokia Middle East.

Now Nokia (and Microsoft) are betting on the Chinese market with language support and lower-end, budget devices, but Arabic support will also arrive soon and Nokia will be ready to commit.
