Nokia falls from UK number one spot

Nokia falls from UK number one spot

Nokia is slipping further back in the UK after losing its position as the manufacturer with the biggest market share.

Senior industry sources claimed that Nokia was a percentage point behind Samsung’s 30% share of the market.

It appears that Samsung’s aggressive pricing in the prepay market is taking sales away from Nokia’s prepay heartland.

It coincides with a sobering set of global financial results from Nokia, which posted a 30% drop in profits as sales fell 5.1% to £9.5bn.

The manufacturer is set to launch music, mapping and internet services, with the UK as a key battleground.

Nokia launched Comes With Music at Carphone Warehouse stores last week, with operators reticent to back the manufacturer.
