Nokia could struggle to break into new territory in terms of sales with its new Lumia 800 mobile phones that are being released in this country in March, an expert has claimed.
Mobility and media analyst at research firm Telsyte Foad Fadaghi told the Sydney Morning Herald that Nokia could find it challenging to break into the Australian smartphone market as people will be more familiar with iPhone or Android devices.
However, Mr Fadaghi did admit that users of Android phones that don't currently have a great number of apps downloaded could be convinced to try out the Lumia 800.
“There is that constant stream of people buying mobile handsets throughout the course of the year. The question is whether or not the product will stand up strongly against its competitors,” he continued.
Nokia announced at the end of last month that it is set to release its Windows-powered Lumia 800 by March.
