Nokia Vice President Leaves The Company Before Windows Phone 8 Launch
At the time Nokia introduced its new Lumia line-up, including the flagship Lumia 920, investors were disappointed “by a lack of details such as launch dates and prices“, notes Reuters. The same source now confirms that a senior executive in charge of smartphone marketing has recently left Nokia.
Ilari Nurmi, ex-vice president of product marketing, has recently confirmed to Reuters via e-mail that he has left Nokia. The man who was also in charge with Nokia’s smartphone strategy didn’t specifically mention whether his leaving was voluntary or not. The company didn’t comment on said departure.
The Lumia 920 is the most anticipated device to run Windows Phone 8; however, Ilari Nurmi’s leaving is yet to be tied to the lack of launch details investors were unhappy about, to the controversial Nokia ads where the company has used footage from a professional device in its commercial, or to something else completely unrelated. Microsoft is set to officially launch its new platform at the end of this month and AT&T is already preparing to unleash the new Lumias upon the market.
