Nokia Strategy and Financial Briefing on February 11th at London

| January 11, 2011 | 50 Replies

Nokia has announced today that on the 11th of February (just before the MWC starting 14th) at London, they will unveil the future strategy of the company along with some interesting facts about the market performance(Q4 2010 results ?). The most interesting thing for us will be, of course, the strategy. FYI, this is the first real media briefing after Stephen Elop took over the reigns, so we can expect some real changes to the strategy, no ?

They have stated here that the event will be happening for just half a day, starting 11 A.M U.K time. The event will be followed up by some Q&As from 12.30 to 4.00 P.M (man! are they announcing something really big that may arise so many questions?!) also, people who can’t attend the event can watch a live webcast. The website also says that all the other details like online registration, venues will be decided in the coming weeks.

Just in time for a great MWC, where the devices will be actually announced.

Edit : While googling 2010’s Nokia Capital Markets Day announcement, i found this :

Nokia Devices & Services operational priorities
In addition to providing its key financial targets, Nokia also outlined key Devices & Services operational priorities for 2010. These are:
– Improve our user experience;
Re-engineer our Symbian user interface; deliver a major product milestone before mid-year 2010, and another major product milestone before the end of 2010;
Deliver our first Maemo 6-powered mobile computer, with an iconic user experience, in the second half of 2010;
– Significantly increase the proportion of touch and/or QWERTY devices in our smartphone portfolio;
– Scale up our Services business by expanding geographically and in partnership with more operators;
– Provide third party developers with better tools to create applications and content for our Ovi ecosystem;
– Further optimize the industry’s lowest cost end-to-end business model in Mobile Phones; and
– Continue to build on our affordable and localized services offerings for emerging market consumers.

These are just the devices and services announcements of 2010’s CMD. Can you see the bolded lines above ?Nokia have completely failed to meet those deliverables. 2011 is the year to rectify their mistakes, deliver the promised, hope Nokia measures upto the expectations atleast this time.

So, people, what do you think this year’s strategy is? or should be? the comments section is wide open for discussions 🙂

Thanks to Chilko .
