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.

Forbes and NY aren't even a thing over in Europe. Nokia in its home country ... I can buy that. But anywhere else I just don't believe it was the cause.

True. Forbes and NYT are any big deal in Europe - I only used them as example for the US where Nokia doesn't normally even hit the radar of any news company.

Nokia in its home country? Certainly.

But what about all the other countries (China, Japan, in Africa, in the middle east, etc) that do pay a lot of attention to Nokia and use a lot of Nokia product? It would have certainly made the headlines there too - especially in countries where people had a lot tied up in the Nokia Ovi app store for Symbian. it's these markets that really built the majority of Nokia's business - and which Elop was quick to undercut and cast off.

In the UK I didn't even see it on the BBC Tech section ... it was minor.
