Some Nokia shareholders want Elop ousted

Written by


Nokia should stick to Symbian, MeeGo
A small group of Nokia shareholders announced they will try to oust Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and other executives at a shareholders' meeting on May 3.

The group numbers nine former Nokia employees who believe the company should refocus on Symbian and MeeGo rather than reach for Microsoft's mobile operating systems. They believe Windows Phone should only be used on a couple of handsets targeted for the US market, while MeeGo should be the company's primary future OS.

They also want to see Symbian's lifespan extended to 5 years, which is pretty much like trying to bring tape decks back.

On another note, Elop is Microsoft's 7th largest individual shareholder, which could also explain why some shareholders might be concerned. We wonder what Nokia would have done had Elop been a Google shareholder.

Scott, you are pretty stupid with your tape comments. Symbian is currently more advanced platform than WP7 current version by far. You would know that if you'd know anything about mobile phone OS'es. Only problem with Symbian is the UI layer which is hard to make fast. And you didn't get their message (again, because you are stupid): They want S40 to be left in low cost platforms and MeeGo to be in high end. It is clear that S60 cannot be extended to future high end lineup.

More mobile operating systems = better options for us. Ditching Symbian OS and switching to Microsoft is classic monopolization communist take-over of western economies. Less competition also drives up the costs making it more difficult for those not better off to enter the market which is the point which is what communism is really about.
