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.

And current NSN affairs, show that Nokia only lacked good MANAGEMENT.

(You know like not calling its own products "burning platform", not announcing successor to obsolete products when its not ready, not announcing discontinuation product on the first day of sales REGARDLESS of how well it will do)
