Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book at times was sloppily written and poorly organized, but offered some interesting insights on where Nokia went wrong in the smartphone race. Like BlackBerry and Microsoft, Nokia was a victim of its own success and stuck with its playbook for too long, Ahmad writes. With its telecom background Nokia was more focused on hardware and specs, rather than software and interface, two of the great strengths of Apple and Android. Despite these strengths, the poor quality of the writing makes this book best suited for industry insiders rather than the general reader.
