During Finnovation 13, Jorma Nieminen gave us an excellent overview of the birth of the Telecom cluster and especially the mobile phone part, with impressive examples of the early Nokia phones
Then on Saturday morning, Mike and I went to the town of Salo, about 50kms from Turku, where ITMPs 00, 01, 02, 03 and 04 had visited the Nokia factory. For me, that’s where the best Marimekko shop has always been, and I wanted to bring back something really nice.
Here’s what we saw instead:
No more shop! Why? No more Nokia factory? Why? No more Nokia buyers? Why?
Well that’s up to the experts to find out. And unfortunately, this year, José Teixiera, researcher at the TSE and a real expert on smartphone Operating Systems battles, was not in Turku to tell us!
Anyway, what we’d like to do is a sort of street poll among our French and Finnish students to see what you think about Nokia’s future.
So, if you have one minute, please click here and answer the poll!
