“Nokia has claimed that the youth of today are fed up with the iPhone and baffled by Android,” Stuart Miles reports for Pocket-lint.
“In an exclusive interview with Pocket-lint, Niels Munksgaard, director of Portfolio, Product Marketing & Sales at Nokia Entertainment Global explained all,” Miles reports. “‘What we see is that youth are pretty much fed up with iPhones. Everyone has the iPhone,’ he said. ‘Also, many are not happy with the complexity of Android and the lack of security. So we do increasing see that the youth that wants to be on the cutting edge and try something new are turning to the Windows phone platform.'”
MacDailyNews Take: Please see the article that just preceded this one: Windows Phone exploit crashes devices, disables messaging. The youth of today must enjoy repetitive rebooting and, as we all know, they have no use for messaging.
Miles reports, “Munksgaard agrees though, that even then it is not so easy to impress those walking into a shop looking to sign a new contract… It is music, along with mapping and the design of the latest Nokia smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 800, that he feels helps Nokia stand out from the crowd.”
MacDailyNews Take: We wouldn’t want Munksgaard’s job for all the pink slips in Espoo.
