Nokia plans to give face lift to its marketing strategy-Report

Nokia is planning to revamp its marketing strategy ahead of the unveiling of its new Windows 8 smartphone in the autumn, the Financial Times reported on Monday.

According to the newspaper the company is believed to be in talks with European operators including France Telecom about forming an exclusive opportunity to launch a smartphone using the Windows 8 platform from Microsoft.
It said Nokia’s usual sales approach, which relies on trying to get as many phones in as many hands as possible across all channels immediately, would be ditched in favor of partnerships that would help create dedicated support for its smartphones, initially through one or two networks in Europe.
The newspaper cited one person with knowledge of the talks as saying these relationship will also offer the operator a financial stake in the success of the range.
