Not so great software and not so great hardware

Four major wireless carriers in Europe are saying that the Nokia Lumia line of smartphones aren't good enough. The carriers claim that the phones can't compete with offerings running Android and the iPhone. The carriers feel it's a mix of poor hardware and mediocre software.

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.
