New Nokia Mobile Solutions Boss Vows to Win Back High-end Market




Anssi Vanjoki bets big on MeeGo


New Nokia mobile solutions boss vows to win back high-end market

MeeGo will come to the rescue says Nokia

Back in May Nokia announced it was restructuring its mobile devices operations. It was cutting it in two, with one concentrating on regular phones and the other - mobile solutions - focusing entirely on smartphones and other mobile devices.

That restructure became reality yesterday and the boss of the mobile solutions group - Anssi Vanjoki - felt moved to blog about his aspirations in his new role, with a post entitled "The fightback starts now".

He confessed to being "...committed, perhaps even obsessed, with getting Nokia back to being number one in high-end devices," but conceded that it was no small task. He then made a distinction between smartphones and mobile computers, explaining Symbian remains the OS of choice for the former, and MeeGo the latter. Thus Nokia has no plans to use any other software.

"Symbian has taken a lot of criticism lately - some of it fair, some not," said Vanjoki. "But what is consistently overlooked is that Symbian still accounts for more than two-fifths of the global smartphone market. We believe the Nokia N8 will have great appeal." He also said there's a strong possibility that a future N-series product will run on Symbian^4.

"MeeGo offers us an opportunity to take mobile technology beyond the smartphone, and into a new world of connected devices," said Vanjoki. "As Symbian gears up to compete with the likes of iPhone and Android, MeeGo is taking clear aim at the computing space." Given that the iOS and Android are already appearing in tablet devices, we're not sure we agree with the distinction there.

"The current phase of MeeGo development is looking awesome," said Vanjoki. "We believe it will power the computers of the future. And the computers of the future will not be tied to a desk or even a lap - they will fit in your pocket."

It remains to be seen whether consumers will buy into this ‘smartphone vs pocket computer' distinction, especially with the high-end N-series still containing a Symbian device for the foreseeable future. But it would be great to see Nokia rejuvenated in the high-end space, if only to keep Apple and Google on their toes.

Nokia should just rename Meego to Nokia OS

Edit: damn just read these lines

said Vanjoki. "As Symbian gears up to compete with the likes of iPhone and Android, MeeGo is taking clear aim at the computing space." Given that the iOS and Android are already appearing in tablet devices, we're not sure we agree with the distinction there.
*sigh*

I read a transcript of an interview of that guy and he seems very "open":

"When it comes to the high-end experience, there it is absolutely true that lately, we have been trailing."
"These are absolute facts from the market place. Currently, Apple is the leader in this market place (for smartphones). But we have not always been the leader in our business either."

I doubt you'll ever catch Steve Jobs accepting Apple isn't the be all and end all of everything shiny and tech.

If you think Meego is phail, think again.
It is really maturing well.
I have high hopes from Meego.
Lets hope Nokia replaces Symbian completely with Meego for its smartphones.

Re: New Nokia Mobile Solutions Boss Vows to Win Back High-end Market

well,
Meego will be good. I is working on it, so it will be good.

intel were initially clueless with what to do with moblin, and nokia were isolated with maemo. But with these two joining hands together, things are heading in right direction.
I have seen N900, its a very nice phone, its much much capable then any phone i have ever seen.
Meego is backed by Linux foundation, Arjan van de van is looking into the affairs, So I expect they are very serious with entire stuff.
platform support has extended from intel atom to arm, so its still better.
They are very aggressively getting into IVI market. I know atleast 4 BIG automakers who are seriously considering it as IVI platform and if meego really goes into these many cars, it is definitely heading towards a success

Meego is completely open source the way Linux is.
Though first version 1.0 is released, but repository is scattered all over the place, a good central repository is a must for distributed development. I hope they do something about it soon.

^^ I think MeeGo will be good, coupled with Intel processors it will be a good choice.
specially if you and Blufox say so
