I've seen a number of Nokia commerical that dont run in prime time, not sure what the demographic of who they are marketing to in the time slots that I've seen them, but definitely have not seen these during prime time. Suspect this will change quickly once the 928 is offered on Verizon's network. For some reason it does seem painfully slow for the Lumia 928 to get traction into the market, but perhaps with the Lumia 928, when the i's are all dotted and the t's are all crossed, perhaps the marketing will be some what coming out of the wood work when the 928 is ready to go. What is going on behind the scenes between Microsoft, Verizon, and Nokia one can only guess at, but perhaps some huge could be coming. Its not like Nokia doesnt have a clue how well their Lumias are doing, perhaps the 928 will be launched with some vigor, that is what I expect will be happening shortly.
Agree with your assessment. I think they'll see current users updating to the new model, and they'll keep a core group of users, but their market share will continue to shrink, both in terms of real numbers and in terms of % market share.
Too bad, as I think it's a good company with a good product. But, regrettably it's a a classic example of the law of creative destruction in a market segment that is growing and dynamic.
