PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The Verge has learned that HTC's Chief Product Officer, Kouji Kodera, left the company last week. Kodera was responsible for HTC's overall product strategy, which makes the departure especially notable on the heels of the global launch of the make-or-break One. It's not just Kodera. In the past three-odd months, HTC has lost a number of employees in rapid succession." I really hope HTC pulls it together.

And some people still think Nokia made the wrong choice.


Speaking as former employee, it remains to be seen.

Yeah, it's by no means a sure thing in Nokia's case. But from we can see so far, there is limited indication that it is working.

They're not an overnight Samsung, but imho, Nokia is still in the conversation because they took Microsoft's olive branch.

Still it is absolutely fascinating that you worked at Nokia, so you likely have an interesting perspective.

Not much I can comment on public forums, just that it was the network unit that later became part of NSN.

It has already been seen. Sales are still terrible. Behind the bragging about "increased sales" you basically have such poor sales it's laughable.

To put it this way: If you sell 1 phone one quarter and 2 the next you have 100% growth. But that doesn't help when your competitors increased their sales by millions.
