Nokia Exec: People are fed up with iPhones, we want to deliver services and phones that are different

In an interview with PocketLint Nokia’s Niels Munksgaard, director of Portfolio, Product Marketing & Sales at Nokia Entertainment Global, had some strong words to say about Windows Phone and its competitors.

“What we see is that youth are pretty much fed up with iPhones. Everyone has the iPhone,” he said. “Also, many are not happy with the complexity of Android and the lack of security. So we do increasing see that the youth that wants to be on the cutting edge and try something new are turning to the Windows phone platform.”

The iPhone comment is a valid point. Some consumers are not happy to simply have the same thing that everyone else has. They want to be different. He’s also right about Android. You personally might not think it’s complex, but the average Joe Consumer does. He also referred to the market as the “sea of sameness,” because walking into a store greets you with rows of black slab devices that all kinda look alike.

This is where Nokia wants to step in an be different. You can already see it in the design of their first Windows Phones that come in a variety of colors. He also talked about software¬†differentiation¬†like Mix Radio which comes on all Nokia Windows Phones. We hope others are bored with the iPhone and Android and give Nokia’s Windows Phones a try too.
