The carriers are also saying that Nokia isn't spending enough on marketing for devices. The carriers also cite image problems with Nokia smartphones due to issues with battery and software in early models. "Nokia have given themselves a double challenge: to restore their credibility in terms of making hardware smartphones and succeed with the Microsoft Windows operating system, which lags in the market," one executive said.
