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.

The problem is not the talent, but how everything is managed. But I cannot speak about it in public.

Yet I can. My NDA with Nokia expired. Their management is really half-assed. The whole company is deep in "don't be better than anyone, be as average as possible" attitude.

The worst thing that I encountered at Nokia is punishment of excellence. Because personal excellence is something to be afraid of.

That said, there are a lot of brilliant people at Nokia. They are just not allowed to shine.
