Nokia World: “Nokia Is Back”, Says Handset Maker. Three New Devices But MeeGo Is M.I.A.
With the company in-between CEOs , it was left to Niklas Savander, Executive Vice President, Markets, to deliver the opening keynote at today's Nokia World in London. And strangely but perhaps appropriately, he was later joined by Anssi Vanjoki, EVP Mobile Solutions and effectively Nokia's no. 2, who just yesterday handed in his notice . Admirably, Savander did his best to rally the troops - all 3,000 attendees, apparently - telling the audience that the message is: "Nokia is back", a direct reference to the Finnish handset maker's loss of the high end smartphone crown, even if in terms of raw numbers it still dominates the market world wide, depending on how you define smartphone, of course. But we'll save that debate for another day.
