Nokia Motorola oligopoly

In Finnish current news TV-program – A-plus – Nokia CEO commented that he couldn’t see any barriers to such mobile market development, which would be Nokia and Motorola dominated while smaller companies would wither away.

To me the interesting part of this kind of out-of-context comment comes in thinking, what would this market oligopoly look like? Nokia is churning more and more mass phones without a special twist for the consumer. Motorola has newfound enthusiasm in industrial design, which used to be Nokia’s monopoly. We are too far from that, but let’s wait couple of years and eventually we’ll get there.
