Ollila: Nokia was too slow, but now will deliver products on time – suggests hybrid smartphone/tablet.
Here’s an interesting read from Ollila if this is true. Ollila accepts that Nokia missed the boat when it came to smartphones in 2008. Despite inventing the smartphone and being on top, Nokia was unable to adapt to the new pressures of the new smartphone paradigm quickly enough. Nokia was just too slow.
I mentioned before that Nokia must focus now on products, on customer satisfaction, on timely products. The right products at the right time.
Ollila says that Nokia will produce on time and makes a mention of hybrid devices.
Ollila said that Nokia will publish its range of flat screen computers and smart phones like the hybrid devices.
The smartphone/pc (tablet?) hybrid has been seen already in the Galaxy Note. At first that product seemed too unwieldy for some, and it still is. But there’s definitely a market for screens that big. I’m afraid Nokia might be too afraid and try to play the safe/boring game. Can Nokia actually bring a proper hybrid as opposed to simply being a big screened smartphone?
Cheers Jiipee for the tip!
