So the Nokia Youtube channel just uploaded a video about a bunch of people asking Elop questions and him responding through the video, some informative bits and pieces amongst the usual vague generic replies (BTW is it just me or is Elops voice TOO calm, he shows no emotion when talking- would be great for an audiobook reader though “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phenoix, read in the voice of Stephen Elop” I’d buy that).
Here’re some random points if you decided to skip the 11 minutes of video (not exact quotes more of gists of the idea).
Nokia Lumia Phones coming to Verizon w/ PureView tech?
Nokia’s main goal in the US is to get their phones subsidized by carriers, rather than the usual approach; which means it’s in our best interest to get as many carriers on board while providing each carrier with a unique device, PureView sets Nokia apart from the pact; and you WILL see this technology coming to other Nokia devices.- Likelyhood of Verizon phone Very high, Likelyhood of PureView Lumia: inevitable.
Will Nokia make NFC standard in all future phones?
YES, there are unlimited potentials for NFC in the future, and Nokia with it’s NFC technology are prepared to greet the NFC age (currently 8 Nokia smartphones with NFC and loads of Accessories)
