With the Advent of more and more ways of selling mobiles that make a difference in the everyday life of the consumer, Industry analysts say that there is a possible power shift in the Handset market from Operators to the Handset, Applications Manufacturers. Not sure how much of that is true as in a lot of geographical locations Handsets are tightly coupled with the operator plan.  

The launch of ‘much awaited’ Google phone ‘Nexus One’ did make the analysts put their thinking caps on !  

Despite the fact that the large investments in the industry are from the operators ( Licenses & Network Infrastructure ), can this be really shifted towards a !Telecom Operators centric Market ?  

And as the report in the link says, Nokia is up against the Apple and Google devices that are coming into the market. Anything around these brands customers are very interested. If there is a shift i think it is going to be cataclysmic in the money that is coming into these new areas that are being created. Worth Watching !  

There is story in the link below, good information is there around Nokia and Apple and Google and intensely growing competition for the market share.

They call it the HTC GOOGLE NEXUS ONE. 🙂  

I kinda like it, but its very expensive to use an unlocked version.  

The features are good but looks handicapped towards the Multimedia side.
