New smartphones unveiled by Nokia

12:35 pm on 15 September 2010

Nokia has unveiled its latest range of smartphones as it tries to claw back ground lost to Apple and Blackberry.

The launch follows a series of major changes at Nokia's board, with the recent resignations of its chief executive and smartphone operations chief.

Head marketing president Niklas Savander admits the giant Finnish cellphone company has been losing market share to rivals, but says it's now shifting into high gear to fight back to smartphone leadership.

CCS Insight analyst Ben Wood says the new phones will be critical to Nokia recovering lost ground.
