iPhone is here, but others are gearing up too

August 27, 2008

Mobile manufacturing majors Nokia, Motorola, Research in Motion (BlackBerry), Samsung and LG are trying to outsmart each other with their nifty offerings in a bid for higher average revenue per user.

They are also competing with each other for a share of the country's smartphone market, which is expected to touch 10 million by 2010.

The war has simply intensified with the entry of the iconic and much-hyped Apple iPhone.

But the going will, in no way, be easy for Apple.

Consider these facts. For one, Nokia sells a phone somewhere on this planet every 18 seconds and has 9,200 applications written for its phones.
