Why people are against Stephen Elop?

> He has abandoned Symbian, MeeGo and Meltimi Platforms from Nokia
> Adapted Windows Phone OS for Nokia’s Smart Phones
> Many Nokia’s factories have been closed worldwide
> Downsizing in Nokia’s factories
> Shut-down the production in Finland and outsourced them to Asian Countries

Kauppalehti (Finnish business newspaper) describes that in such a situation investors in Finnish Mobile Company (Nokia) have decided to collect the signatures from shareholders to get Stephen Elop sacked out of the company. The only thing that could make the CEO’s position safe is Windows Phone 8’s success. And  in case Windows Phone 8 also brings up disappointment just like Windows Phone 7.5 did for the company, the board of directors have hinted to switch over to Android (as a backup plan).

Should Stephen Elop be sacked out of Nokia?

  • nokia making androids sounds like good news… Best in build quality now it could also come with as good an os to back its premium build……

  • If Nokia can develope Symbian^3, Meego, then why it is not suppirting n backing these OSs? When Nokia can develope new OS then whats the need to accept WP7.5 or WP8? I think rather than going to other OS options Nokia should believe n improve its own OSs like others. If Nokia would have given more freedom to App developers, then it won’t be behind in number of Apps game…
