Nokia Reorganizes Internal Structure Again
Nokia today announced another internal restructuring in hopes of streamlining its operations. The three new business units include Mobile Solutions, Mobile Phones and Markets. The Mobile Solutions division will focus on high-end devices running the Symbian and MeeGo platforms. The Mobile Phones unit will focus on entry-level and mid-range handsets running the Series 40 platform. The Markets unit will focus on sales and marketing activities, and managing operations. The new structure will be effective starting July 1, and Nokia believes it will help the company bring innovative products to market faster.
Part of the problem with Nokia is that it is really a very large company. Nokia is the GM of the celluar industry and the amount of devices they produce is staggering.
But with size comes certain problems like gettings stuck into certain processes, certain suppliers, specific brands, etc. When GM re-org'ed itself and dropped the platforms that were producing, we saw GM take off.
I have been beta testing S^3 on an X16 for nearly 4 months and I will say that while it is no iPhone/iPad it is on par or better than everything else. It's simply different, in a Finnish/European type of way.
