Nokia Blames Dollar, SARS For Handset Weakness
Up, down, up, down. It’s tough to keep track of the global handset market. Just last week we had an article saying that handset sales were up on replacement sales as people started upgrading to fancier camera phones. Today, however, Nokia is saying that the weak economy and SARS-related problems are contributing to weaker than expected demand. Of course, it might just be a matter of perspective. Weaker than expected sales could still me an increase in sales.
