Nokia is having problems, we all know that and CEO, Stephen Elop, acknowledged the burning platform the Finns are sitting on. Things seems to be worse than just a burning platform, according to analysts. Reuters is running a story claiming that Samsung Electronics Co Ltd will become the world's largest smartphone maker this quarter, overtaking struggling Nokia which has lead the market since 1996. That's what Nomura analysts said on Monday. Gartner analyst Carolina Milanesi is on the same page claiming that "if Nokia's new phones are not well received in the third quarter and (with) the Galaxy S2 ramping up, Samsung might overtake them and become the smartphone leader in Q3". According to Nomura's analysis, if Apple keeps growing and Nokia keeps being, oh well Nokia, the Cupertino based company will overtake Nokia in the next quarter placing them at No3 in the world's largest smartphone maker list.

Today Nokia launches the new Nokia X1-00, a music phone made specifically for the masses. Don't expect any great or high end features here. The Nokia X1-00 spots a huge speaker at the back of the phone, which Nokia rates at 106phon (a phon is a measure of perceived loudness – 106 of them is enough to rattle your window frames, apparently). Nokia X1-00 comes with a 3.5mm audio jack, support for microSD memory cards up to 16GB, FM radio support, Series 30 operating system and a price of less than $35. Yes, you read that right. The Nokia X1-00 costs less than 35 bucks, almost half a dollar for each of its whopping 61 days max battery life in standby mode.
