Nokia’s New Chairman of the Board Confident in Windows Phone PlanMay 3, 2012 2 Comments
Risto Siilasmaa, a board member since 2008 and now new chairman, had this to say at a press briefing before the company’s annual investor meeting in Helsinki.
“I don’t think any new change is required as we are going through a transformation period already,”
“Nokia is going through a very difficult period for us as shareholders, as employees and as Finns, but I am certain we have the right team, the right strategy and increasingly the right products to emerge as a very successful company,”
This is a very good sign that Nokia will in fact be able to turn the ship around. As stocks take a dip here and there, it shows off the strength of the company and the people when everyone involved believes in the plan and is on the same page. With the Lumia 900, Nokia has bounced back a bit in the US as signs of sales numbers show promise. The biggest challenge for Nokia however is to continue to lower the cost of Windows Phone around the globe.
I am very excited in what Nokia is doing and I cannot wait for their Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 devices.
