PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia's vice president Bryan Biniak: "We are trying to evolve the cultural thinking [at Microsoft] to say 'time is of the essence'. Waiting until the end of your fiscal year when you need to close your targets, doesn't do us any good when I have phones to sell today." Later Biniak adds: "As a company we don't want to rely on somebody else and sit and wait for them to get it right." There was a simple solution to this problem.

What 2009????

Get the facts straight first:

Q1 2010 . . 22.7 Million smartphones . . 42% market share . . 3.4B Euro Revenues . . +350M E profit
Q2 2010 . . 25.2 Million smartphones . . 41% market share . . 3.5B Euro Revenues . . +283M E profit
Q3 2010 . . 27.1 Million smartphones . . 34% market share . . 3.6B Euro Revenues . . +335M E profit *
Q4 2010 . . 28.6 Million smartphones . . 29% market share . . 4.4B Euro Revenues . . +548M E profit

As You can see NOBODY killed Symbian in Nokia. In fact Elop managed to show its true strength in Q3/4 2010...

And then in Q1 2011 called Symbian "burning platform". That is what killed Symbian.

(FYI, those number are ONLY Symbian...)
