Nokia has issued its predictions for 2010, predicting that mobile industry device volumes will increase by 10%, although its own market share will stay flat. However, of more interest to Music Ally readers will be its longer-term forecasts for services – which include its music activities. The company says it’s aiming to generate more than two billion Euros of services revenues in 2011, by which point it wants to have signed up 300 million users. That’s not just music, of course – it includes mapping and its Ovi Store app store. Nokia also claims it will take a giant leap forward in the user interface of its Symbian smartphones next year – a necessity if they are to compete with iPhone and the new generation of Android handsets.
