PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Speaking of Nokia - Engadget got their hands on what is supposedly an internal memo sent to Nokia employees by the company's new CEO. It's... Brutal. As in, brutally honest. There's no sugar-coating here, no unicorns, no glitter. "Nokia, our platform is burning." Update: Android is probably out of the question. Will it be Windows Phone 7, after all? Damn; Palm tonight, Nokia Friday - what a week for mobile! Update: The "Communities Dominate Brands" blog published an in-depth analysis of the memo, which claims with sound arguments that it might well be a hoax.

Finnish Management Culture

Voi Pillu.

Wow, that's definitely not Finnish management culture. I've worked for a Finnish company before, and their management culture is rather... arrogantly yet calmly oblivious. I've worked for one Finnish sinking ship (not Nokia) and it's remarkable how similar the management cultures were on the sinking ship. It was one of "Our stuff is awesome, we don't need to look at what the competitors are doing or change anything".

But this memo... if real, is a lot different. Good for them.
