The rise and fall of the Nokia phone brand

The rise and fall of the Nokia phone brand

Once upon a time, Nokia was the biggest mobile company in the world but now it is hard to convince one that this is part of history. The name that once determined who spoke to who on phone no longer features on the list of top-selling phones anywhere yet it has all rights to be.

Let’s take a look at how the brand rose to so much popularity all around the world, and why it has failed to keep up to the trends in the industry. 

The beginning

Nokia was founded in Finland in 1865 by Fredrik Idestam, a mining engineer. It derives its name from on the town Nokia located on the banks of the Nokianvirta River. The company was at first involved in electricity generation, before being involved in rubber works after the first World War, and then later producing telephone, telegraph, and electrical cables.

The company dealt in cables until the 1960s when its focus on mobile phone technologies grew. It had started producing commercial and military mobile radio telephones. But as Nokia built these military base stations, it needed a push to penetrate deeper into the commercial market. It had active competition from other mobile phone enthusiastic companies including Salora – a television producer, AGA and Televa – a state-owned electronics firm. 

In 1979, Nokia partnered with Salora, forming a 50-50 venture they called “Mobira Oy”.

The rise of Nokia

The first product of the venture was a car phone released in 1982.  It was known as the Mobira Senator, and weighed 10kgs. This success saw Nokia buying off Salora including its television business in 1984. The same year, Nokia upgraded the Senator with the release of the 5kg Mobira Talkman, the first transportable phone that could be used in and out of the car.

Move on to 1987, when the company launched the Mobira Cityman, a lighter 800g phone that could be used right about anywhere. This was the phone that introduced the Nokia brand to the world and was nicknamed the “Gorba”.

In 1989, Nokia-Mobira Oy was renamed “Nokia Mobile Phones”, and in 1990, the company predicted that there would be 40 million mobile phone users by 1999 hence focussed their efforts on producing mobile phones.

1992 saw the release of the Nokia 1011, making the company huge sales all over Europe and the Americas. Then came the first feature phones – the 2100 series in ’94 – which proved to be the best-sellers globally. The company had projected sales on 1 million devices, but instead sold over 20 million of the 2100s.the nokia story

And this was the first mistake the brand made: Misjudging the market! 1999 came and instead of the anticipated 40 million users, there was a demand for 250 million handsets.

At the time, Nokia was the most dominant company capturing almost 25% of the global market, with Motorola coming in thereafter. Between 2003 and ’05, the Nokia 1100 and 1110 were the best-sellers. About this time, the company had 70% market share in Asia. 

But as the market was progressing, Nokia failed to adapt.

The fall

The late 2010s saw the introduction and adoption of iOS and Android in the US and Europe. The Asian and Middle-East markets were flooded with cheaper and more convenient Samsung and Motorola phones, just as Chinese local mobile manufacturers were beginning to crop up.

As most phone manufacturers were siding with Android, Nokia seemed very comfortable with Symbian. The increase in popularity of Apple and Google became a nightmare for Nokia’s existence. Interest in software was becoming the thing, but Nokia’s focus was on building the hardware.

In a bid to bounce back, things became worse instead. Instead of opting for Android as the running operating system for the company’s smartphones, Nokia executives chose Windows mobile OS in a bid to be unique from the other manufacturers. Another mistake, probably the worst of them all.  

the nokia story

Windows OS was not compatible with mobiles the way Android or iOS is. The software had no ecosystem, unlike the other two that can accommodate as many apps as they can. We all know that since Windows was built to work on big screens, there was no way it could be fitted into small mobile phone screens. This was the bullet that finished off the Nokia spark.

Any efforts to revive the brand have been mere kicks of a dying horse.

A beginner’s guide to using TikTok

A beginner’s guide to using TikTok

If there is something that has shaped social media of late, it is TikTok. The app has hijacked the internet and is just not about to stop. For those that do not know:

TikTok is a video streaming and sharing app that allows users to create funny videos on an unlimited number of topics. Videos can be 15 seconds long, but not more than 60 seconds.

The app was initially launched in China, named Douyin, in late 2016. Within just a year, it’d reached the 100 million mark, something that prompted the founders to spread it to the international market as TikTok. And when Hollywood celebrities joined the platform, it was clear TikTok was about to hit big.

Statista reported that the app had half a billion users globally in October 2019, and the numbers are growing day by day. Why? Majority of the app’s users are people born in the last 15 years.

Here’s a guide on how to go about the app, if you are a beginner and have chosen to be part of the trend.

How to create a TikTok account

You should first download the app from Google Play or App Store. Then, tap the video on your screen, and a sign-up form will appear.

Go on to select your sign-up option: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Google account, or you can sign up with your phone or email –  If you are registering with an existing social media account TikTok will use your name and profile photo which you can change later.

You will be asked to enter your birthday. This is because TikTok requires users to be at least 13 years old. TikTok will automatically give you a user name; but you can change it once every 30 days.

How to create a TikTok video

To create a video, just tap on the central button with the “Plus” sign. You’ll be able to record 15 or 60 seconds video, with a lot of features. You can add sounds, filtered by categories. You have the browsing bar and you can also save the favourite ones. TikTok provides many special effects with the help of AI and lets you bookmark the ones you like the most.

A significant feature is that you can post the videos created on TikTok to other social media platforms such as Instagram feed or story, Facebook & Facebook Messenger, Twitter, Email, WhatsApp. This has helped to promote the app even more.

How to do a duet on TikTok

Here, two users who follow each other can make a common video.

To do this, the first user creates and posts a video, and then the second one selects the three-dot icon from the bottom right of the video and presses “Start the duet now.”

How to download a TikTok video

If you want to download a video you’ve posted or any other you like, tap for a few seconds on it and then select “Save video.”

If you don’t want people to download any of your videos, go to your profile, tap the three-dot icon, access Privacy and safety, and tap on the Allow download option. You can disable this option.

How to delete a TikTok video

If you decided to post a video but afterwards you aren’t so happy about it, you can delete it.

Go to your account, select the video you want to delete, and tap the three-dot icon and select “Delete”.

Just for a double check, TikTok will ask if you’re sure you want to delete the video. After this, it will be gone entirely – unless you’ve downloaded it.

How to add your Instagram profile to your TikTok account

  1. Click “Edit Profile”
  2. Click “Add Instagram to your profile”
  3. TikTok will ask if you want to save your Login info
  4. Done

How to add your YouTube profile to your TikTok account

  1. Click “Edit Profile”
  2. Click “Add YouTube to your profile”
  3. TikTok will ask if you want to save your Login info
  4. Done

How to find content made by people you’re following

By tapping the magnifying glass in the menu, you’ll find out what are the trending topics grouped by hashtags. You can type keywords, and you’ll be given a lot of options to choose from.

How to make your TikTok account private

If you decide you want to narrow down your audience for a while, you can make your account private quickly.

  1. Go to your profile page
  2. Select the three-dot icon located in the top-right corner
  3. Select “Privacy and safety” and switch for the Private account.

You can also set who can post a comment, who can create a duet with you, who can react to your videos and many other settings.

How to delete your TikTok account

In case you found TikTok not interesting or you want to create another account, you can opt to delete it.

  1. Go to your profile
  2. Select the three-dot icon
  3. Click “Manage my account”
  4. Make sure you have a valid phone number because, without it, you won’t be able to see the Thinking about removing your account option.
  5. Once it appears, tap on it and follow the instructions: add the verification code sent on the phone, select Continue, read and accept the information regarding deleting your TikTok account
  6. Click Continue and then complete the process by tapping on “Delete account”

If you created your account with your Twitter or Facebook account, you’ll have to tap “Verify and Continue” before your TikTok account is deleted.

Here’s how Uganda ranks in the 2020 Global Startup rankings

The 2020 Startup Ecosystem report form StartupBlink is out! The third edition of the report, which uncovers the trends of innovation throughout 1,000 cities and 100 countries, details the best countries and cities that breed startups into big companies.

The report is built on an algorithm developed over the past five years and it takes into account a geographic crowd sourced database of tens of thousands of startups, accelerators, and co-working spaces, among other entities.

How does Uganda rank in the Global Startup rankings?

According to the rankings, Uganda ranks 89th globally and 9th in Africa among the most suitable places for startup development. Much as there was a positive trend in the previous reports, the 2020 rankings have seen the country decline by 8 spots.

“As in other numerous Africa’s startup ecosystem countries, Uganda is struggling with local issues like poor infrastructure, lack of resources, and unemployment.”

Uganda’s only city in the rankings, Kampala, is now ranked 307th in the world after declining 28 spots. The capital also ranked 80th in the COVID-19 Innovation Ranking.

African countries in the top 100

It has been a disappointing year for African countries with almost all falling places, and only two joining the top 100. South Africa (52) fell a place down, Kenya (62) fell 10 places and Nigeria (68) dropped 12. Also, Egypt and Ghana both fell in the rankings to 81st and 85th respectively.

Dimension Data rebrands its Internet Solutions subsidiary

Dimension Data rebrands its Internet Solutions subsidiary

Dimension Data is in the process of consolidating its businesses across East Africa in order to enhance efficiency and deliver better on the changing technology needs of its clients. The consolidation will see its subsidiary that operates in the region as Internet Solutions (IS), rebrand and operate as Dimension Data East Africa.

The IS brand will be retired by the end of this year.

The realignment has also seen Internet Solutions Managing Director Richard Hechle, appointed to head the group’s consolidated business in East and West Africa.

Commenting on the changes, Hechle says that bringing the companies together will help the firm unlock opportunities for greater innovation, as well as give clients the power to build their futures using game changing technology.

Bringing all our people and operating companies together will allow us to effectively and efficiently execute our go-to market strategy and enable our clients’ success in a digital-first world. This digital-first world is characterised by technologies that are converging to deliver unified, hybrid and holistic solutions for real business impact.”

Similar Changes elsewhere

Dimension Data is also effecting similar changes in the Middle East and other parts of Africa where it has operations. Hechle reassures clients that Dimension Data will continue to deliver services seamlessly and efficiently even as the company works through the integration process.

dimension data rebrands

He notes that as the market continues to evolve, the company was conscious of the need to remain relevant by delivering products and services that enable clients to meet the increasing demand for personalisation and customisation.

Leveraging technology is critical for businesses and our products and services play a vital role in empowering them to build their future.”

The group is reorganising five go-to-market areas to deliver Intelligent technology and services that are aligned to clients’ journeys, including; Intelligent Infrastructure, Intelligent Workplace & Customer Experience, Intelligent Business Applications, Intelligent Innovation and Intelligent Cyber Security.

Reorganising ourselves to deliver what the market demands is driven with growth in mind and we’re very excited about the future and are committed to bringing these changes online quickly. The role of technology in business is changing and, therefore, how it is consumed, and the decisions related to technology are changing. We are adapting to align our organisation to that of our client choices.”

Hechle further explained that the way the company collaborates with its clients ensures creation of the most significant value and sustainable business outcomes for them.

The logic is clear: the more we focus on seamless client experiences, the more focused we become on delivering solutions that work. We believe that when we understand our clients’ needs, we deliver better solutions.”

MTN Uganda renews license to operate for another 12 years

MTN Uganda renews license to operate for another 12 years

MTN Uganda has successfully negotiated for the renewal of its operator license. Since the company’s 20-year license expired in October 2018, there has been a series of negotiation here and there going on in a bid to fulfil the terms set for the company to officially continue operation.

Like we had earlier reported, the telco had agreed to make the payment of the renewal fees in two instalments of $50 million each, with the first payment done in March this year and the second right before the end of this financial year.

The fulfilment of this means MTN will now get a National Telecom Operator License for which it will be required to guarantee 100 per cent geographical coverage of the country with a minimum of 4mphs internet speeds in rural areas and 8Mphs in urban areas.

We are yet to confirm whether the company will list at least 20 per cent of its shares on the Uganda Securities Exchange.

However, details from a trusted source reveal that the company might indeed list on USE though not entirely. It is alleged that MTN Mobile Money is going to be set aside as a separate company, an entity independent of MTN Uganda. We are still ascertaining these details. 

The company has issued a statement to confirm the conclusion of negotiations on the license renewal.

MTN Uganda provides telecommunications services under a Second National Operator License for the operation of a telecommunications system issued on 15 April 1998 for a period of twenty years. The License expired on 21 October 2018 but was variously extended to accommodate conclusion of renewal negotiations which have been ongoing for close to 2 years.

MTN Uganda is now pleased to announce the conclusion of negotiations for the renewal of its Second National Operator license which expired in October 2018.

MTN has fulfilled all conditions precedent to the license, including the payment of a total sum of US$100 million as license renewal fee for a period of 12 years commencing 1 July 2020.

MTN and the Commission will conclude the signature of the License Agreement within the coming days

How to use the Uber Cash feature for your transactions

How to use the Uber Cash feature for your transactions

Uber has introduced Uber Cash to further promote cashless transactions across all Uber’s products. Uber Cash is facilitated by Flutterwave, an online payment solution, to ensure the easiest and most reliable payment options are made available for locals. 

Riders can now prepay for their upcoming trips with Uber Cash, creating a stress-free way to travel, further adding to the convenience this payment method offers. Digital payments help ensure the well-being of both the rider and driver by limiting unnecessary physical contact and it is the encouraged method of payment should travel be necessary. 

While existing payment options will still be available including cash (for rides only), debit card and gift cards, this new feature offers a seamless way to make and further control payment on Uber. 

This payment method creates an app-specific account that can be preloaded with any amount, to be used on upcoming trips. The account can be topped-up via the user’s Ride account and used as and when needed on Uber, allowing the user to control the amount spent on the specific app, further helping them control their budget. 

Top-ups are available and work similarly to that of an airtime increases. Riders are able to top-up their balance via a debit/credit card, MTN, Airtel Tigo, a bank transfer or Barter for payment of use. There is no need to use a physical card or cash. Once the account has been loaded, all credit is non-expiry meaning that locals can use it whenever they see fit. 

Uber Cash limits potential cash deficits should either the driver, courier or user not have enough or exact change, as like a debit transaction, the exact amount will be taken. However, if there is some cash lying around that one wants to use, riders are able to pay for a trip with this, and ask the driver to load change directly into their Uber Cash account.

How to use Uber Cash

  1. Open the app menu and tap on Payment
  2. Tap “Add funds”
  3. Change payment method to Uber Cash
  4. Choose a destination
