Nokia Nseries chief responds to iPhone

“So, the Apple iPhone has finally been announced. So what does this mean for existing mobile phone makers? I just interviewed Nokia’s vice president of Nseries Computers Pekka Pohjakallio at CES, and here’s what he had to say, having spent the morning receiving text messages from Nokia’s spies watching Steve Jobs’ speech.”I think it confirms our story,” he says. “We have been preaching the message of converged multimedia in one device, with lots of use cases and a good experience for the whole life of Nseries. And now Apple have come and said basically the same thing, even if they have implemented some things differently.”It just confirms our message, and it’s good to have others preaching the same message. The best company will win in the end, so I think it’s good news for us. It’s not a threat, although of course it’s hard competition, but that usually makes you perform better yourself.” via
