Mobilizing the Business and Business of Mobile

Nokia to exit Business Mobility market

with one comment

Clearly the current economic climate is beginning to affect the mobile business. Last week RIM released stellar Q2 earnings but with downward guidance for Q3. Another sign of that is today’s announcement by Nokia that it was “renewing” its business mobility strategy. It is shutting down its behind-the-firewall mobility solutions business and is in talks to sell its security appliance business. It is also talking up its relationship with Microsoft, IBM, Cisco and others. To me it appears that Nokia has decided that it does not expect enterprises to invest in mobility solutions until such time as the economic climate improves. As a result of this, Nokia realizes that it will have an uphill task to win sales against entrenched solution providers like the ones named above.
