From what I saw you are correct Dan.
Nokia had a lot of quite brilliant engineers and many keen, competent engineering managers. (Yes really!)
But they did seem a little mired down in competing schemes and staggering under Symbian.
Someone there said that they "suffered from management by consensus".
I am not saying that the alternative is good (stalin, hitler etc) but compare and contrast
with Gates and Jobs.
I would love to read a good kiss and tell from the inside of Nokia. Anyone know of a suitable tomb ^h e ?
