Nokia to offer more phones to the U.S. Finnish phone maker, Nokia has stated that it will begin shipping many more of its phone models to the United States to grab a bigger percentage of the global mobile phone sales.
Nokia has a 40 percent global share of all cell phones sold, but has been staggering on a 10 percent share in the U.S. due to the Finnish company dropping production of phones using CMDA technology. A technology popular in the U.S.

Finnish daily Helsingin Sanomat quoted the chief designer of Nokia in that design cooperation with the U.S. will bear fruit soon. "In the next few months (U.S.) operators will carry a lot of new products from us," Alastair Curtis told the paper.

A Nokia representative stated that the company will begin rolling out many new models to the U.S. this year including CMDA models and phones normally sold globally.

My first cell phone was a Nokia that would've been better off as a light up paper weight.
