Nokia design VP ousting first sign of Microsoft-lead aesthetic change

As Microsoft acquires Nokia's phone business, a shuffle of industry players is happening - starting with Marko Ahtisaari, Nokia's soon-to-be-former executive VP of design. An announcement of this departure was made just as the Nokia-Microsoft deal was made, with added note that Ahtisaari will be replaced by Stefan Pannenbecker - a man who up until this announcement was the Nokia VP of Industrial Design. This change-up will be made in November of this year, with word of Ahtisaari leaving to "pursue entrepreneurial opportunities."

Nokia Lumia 1020 Review

Nokia Lumia 1020 Review

Nokia's Lumia 1020 PureView might not need an introduction, but it may need an explanation. Announced with no small amount of fanfare (and hyperbole from Nokia CEO Stephen Elop) the new Windows Phone borrows Nokia's photography tricks from the notably-niche 808 PureView of 2012, refining it with Microsoft's OS and a more streamlined form-factor to make an attempt at the mass-market. That mass-market will get the Lumia 1020 on AT&T from July 26, but the 41-megapixel marvel has already been on the SlashGear test bench, so read on for our full review.

Nokia Lumia 1020 bringing PureView beyond AT&T [UPDATE]

Nokia Lumia 1020 bringing PureView beyond AT&T [UPDATE]

Thought the machine will be coming to the USA with AT&T first, but suggestions from the company itself have aimed the machine out with a wider field of vision, as it were. As the original Nokia Lumia 920 was all but exclusive when it was released in the USA (until advanced versions like the 928 and now the 925 as well, were introduced, it would seem that the word "exclusive" has some hidden meaning to it.

Lumia Tablets, Ecosystems, and the Open Android Myth: Nokia’s Execs Get Blunt

Lumia Tablets, Ecosystems, and the Open Android Myth: Nokia’s Execs Get Blunt

Nokia can afford to put tablets and even phablets on the back-burner, relying instead on Microsoft's broader ecosystem to fill in the gaps in the Finnish firm's range, the company's top execs argue, though they concede both firms need to do better in explaining why that ecosystem is so special. Speaking to SlashGear at the launch of the Lumia 925 in London today, EVP of smart devices Jo Harlow and EVP of sales and marketing Chris Weber refused to be drawn on what big-screen smartphone and tablet plans Nokia might have on the drawing board right now, but each admitted that the next stage in the firm's recovery was explaining exactly how it was differentiated from rival phones. That includes clearing up the misconception that Windows Phone is closed while Android is open, Harlow says.

Nokia CEO faces investor revolt: “Switch to another road” is demand

Nokia CEO faces investor revolt: “Switch to another road” is demand

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop faces renewed criticism from shareholders this week, with attendees at the annual general meeting mincing no words in demanding the Finnish firm reconsider its devotion to Windows Phone. Elop conceded during the investor event that the Nokia leadership "make adjustments as we go," but insisted that Lumia and Windows Phone remained the best way forward, Reuters reports. That confidence wasn't enough to placate outspoken critics, however, with one questioning whether the chief exec was "aware that results are what matter."

Nokia tablet tipped by CEO on heels of Surface

Nokia tablet tipped by CEO on heels of Surface

This week the CEO of Nokia Stephen Elop has hinted that they've once again begun considering the possibility of a tablet PC in the near future. This word comes from an interview Elop did with the Australian Financial Review in which he says the company is not announcing a tablet, but is watching the Microsoft Surface tablet specifically to see how the market will respond to Windows 8 in tablet form. Though this is not an official announcement of a tablet being created by Nokia, it does remind us that they've got tablets in mind as a potential future pathway.
