Nokia Responds to iPhone

Even though I work at Nokia, I have no inside knowledge about what the “official” reaction to Apple’s iPhone is, nor am I authorized to make such a statement. :) Meanwhile, the folks at techdigest.tv cornered Nokia’s VP of Nseries Computers Pekka Pohjakallio at CES and asked for his response.

“I think it confirms our story,” he says. “We have been preaching the message of converged multimedia in one device, with lots of use cases and a good experience for the whole life of Nseries. And now Apple have come and said basically the same thing, even if they have implemented some things differently.”

What I will be interested in seeing is the only response that matters in end: the products, or lack thereof. Certainly the Nokia N95 has something the Apple iPhone doesn’t have: built-in GPS.
