Nokia's in danger of missing next big consumer trend – large screens

Tools

Analyst think that Nokia's lack of a smartphone offering a 5-inch screen is placing the company at the risk of missing the next big trend as consumers shift towards big-screen handhelds. "This is a trend that can't be missed," IDC analyst Francisco Jeronimo told Bloomberg. "People are using smartphones in different ways now, consuming media by streaming over faster mobile networks. A 5-inch screen for a smartphone just feels right in the hand." Sales of handsets 5 inches or bigger soared to 29.7 million units last year from 1.2 million a year earlier, according to Jeronimo.
