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.

Do you honestly think that a large percentage of people walking into a shop to buy a mobile phone keep upto date on every statement of a CEO?

Considering how much that single memo got out in the press, I'd find it hard pressed that people that knew they were buying Symbian or Nokia (ie Brand Loyalists - the people you really want to keep around as buyers) didn't hear about it.
