Since the acquisition by Microsoft, there has been a lot of changes in Nokia. 2014 is going to be really interesting one to look out for Nokia, as Microsoft starts to improve its standing in the smartphone market share with its Windows Phone mobile operating system and providing all notable financial and technological advancements to beat the Google and Apple who still rules the smartphone market.
