Nice spin, Nokia
Nokia’s EVP of Markets at Nokia, Anssi Vanjoki (via NYTImes.com):
So why didn’t Nokia move more quickly to counter Apple and Research in Motion in smartphones? “We didn’t execute; we were aiming at too geeky a community,” he says. “Apple is made for the common man. It’s more for Joe Six-Pack than techno-geeks. But we understand Joe Six-Pack too.”
That’s really interesting. So that’s why the majority of Flex developers, Flash programmers, front-end developers and back-end developers at my company all have iPhones.
Far from the techo-geeks Mr. Vanjoki is talking about.
