Nokia corp.'s chief executive wants to steer the world's largest maker of cellphones toward new sources of revenue, such as the Internet.
    The restructuring of Nokia, announced yesterday, takes a step in pushing that goal by carving out a new unit focused on growth opportunities around music downloading, Internet browsing, mapping and other services.
    Under the reorganization, which will take effect Jan. 1, Nokia will divide its cellphone business into three units: mobile devices; services and software; and a markets division responsible for managing Nokia's supply chains, as well as sales and marketing.
    By increasing the focus on services and software, the changes underscore pressure on cellphone companies to find new businesses as the industry matures. The moves also highlight a broader shift in the cellphone industry, where software is becoming as important -- or more important -- than hardware, said Ben Wood, an analyst at consulting company CCS Insight. "Catering for the talk and text market did not demand the level of competence that this new world requires," he said.
    The launch of Apple Inc.'s iPhone next week shows the new types of competitors that Noika faces. Nokia, which makes more then one in three of all cellphones purchased globally and is the world's biggest handset maker in terms of sales and market share, still has a head start. It already has seen success with the N95 phone, which provides high-speed Internet access and a large screen and memory for video and music files. In addition, Nokia -- along with Sony Ericsson -- has taken the lead in rolling out an array of music phones. Sony Ericsson is a joint venture between Telefon AB L.M. Ericsson and Sony Corp.
    By combining the various device businesses, Nokia hopes to make its efforts to improve its range of handsets more efficient and speed up the time to market for new produces. Different phone divisions have been bumping up against each other. The midtier phones, for instance, have become sophisticated with features such as high-quality cameras and location-based services, traditionally the realm of the highest end of the range.
   When it release results, Nokia will report its cellphone business as one group and its networks business -- which is the infrastructure-equipment venture it runs with Siemens AG -- as another. Previously, Nokia reports result separately for four divisions: low-and midtier phones, high-end phones, the business catering to corporate customers, and networks.
