CTIA Booth Tour: Nokia

LAS VEGAS -- CTIA Wireless 2009 -- We'd already toured the Nokia Networks booth at Mobile World Congress and found that NSN had pretty much the same set-up at CTIA. (See MWC 2009: Nokia Siemens Booth Tour.)

So we were pleased to see Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK) right next door. The booth was inviting: It was set up so you could really put a phone or music device through its paces without getting the stare-down from an anxious sales clerk.

Our 20-minute booth tour, chronicled in the slideshow below, took aim at the Ovi Store; Nokia's green obsession; and the E71x, Nokia's thin, $100 smartphone. Nokia's message of backing slick devices with convenient services would fall flat coming from any other firm. (See Nokia Jams With Music Phones.) But with more than 40 percent of the world's smartphone market share, Nokia the service provider is as interesting to watch as its infrastructure joint-venture, NSN.
