Stephen Elop wins "Mobile Personality of the Year" award

It was a busy time at the 2011 Know Your Mobile awards for both Nokia and Microsoft. Windows Phone received the award for "Operating System of the Year" and Stephen Elop has received honors for "Mobile Personality of the Year". The judging panel stated that 2011 was a great year for mobile, Nokia believes 2012 will be even better.

Stephen Elop has been at Nokia since migrating over from Microsoft in September last year and has been tasked with building (and implementing) a new strategy for the Finnish manufacturer, which was (and still is to a degree) losing the battle in the mobile phone market.

  • all this guy has done this year is talk talk and talk. Released a beautiful N9, killed it, then overhyped the Lumia 800 and delivered a half assed phone.
  • The N9 and Lumia 800 are the same phone (except the latter has an actual ecostystem around it).  How can you praise one and not the other??
  • I love the lumia 800 but same chassis does not mean same phone. The lumia lacks FFC, 64 gigs storage, 3.9 inch screen, all for a better OS.
  • LOL !! Just because they have a pink and blue model does not make them the same phone. One has TI OMAP 3 chipset and the other is QualCom chipset.  The Lumia was to be the next in the N9 range, it was designed as a cheaper alternative to the more expensive TI device.  Obviously they could not kill a platform and roll out two great phones, besides they needed to have something to show the NoWin fan-boys, so they recycled existing hardware.  The market has gone from "Nokia needs Microsoft to survive" to "Without Nokia, Microsoft has as much chance of making an impact as a fart in a hurricane "
    Ecosystem, maybe someday ...
  • Why don't you go to the Maemo/MeeGo Mobile nations website and bitch there?
