PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This one doesn't come as a total surprise: Nokia has replaced its CEO. Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo is on his way out, and he's being replaced by Stephen Elop, head of Microsoft's Business division. This will be the first time someone from Foreign (from Nokia's perspective) will lead the company, but some fresh, outside blood may be just what the doctor ordered.

Nokia should have hired Ballmer.

A perfect example of win-win situation. For both Nokia and MS.

While I don't think as somebody said that Stephen is a "MS guy" (he was there only 18 months), I do wonder if Nokia has snatched him from Redmond arms or if MS will have some 'compensation' for such a loss.
Elop's dept as far as I can read is doing quite well, so so it's not about a captain jumping sinking ship.
