Nokia’s Chief of Design talks about the Lumia 920 and relationship with Microsoft
The interview starts off directly with the design relationship Nokia has with Microsoft, and how the relationship got its true roots with lunch and working with “rockstars.” The creative elements of the teams seemed to fit very well.
Further insight is given to the overall mentality of finding inspiration for designs and how projects take shape. What is very interesting is how specific elements are looked at to aid in the development of new products from nearly every angle. In terms of the user experience, Ahtisaari compares the current state of the overall industry standing and the current user experience to that of the early automobile industry over 100 years ago. He even inserts some Nordic pride in the design influence.
Ahtisaari reflects on his team’s work in the face of Nokia’s challenges and notes that Nokia’s design team is uniquely built in ways other companies are not, encompassing design, user experience and engineering. It is quite a revealing look at how Nokia approaches and develops its products.

He Spent alot of Time an Money creating the N9 an then is Chairman then stopped it being sold Globally to Improve the Sales an Shares at Nokia,the 920 would sell alot better with micro sd card slot,as Microsoft just want to copy the iPhone but its totally wrong as Apple are Miles ahead of them

Considering the only top WP8 phone with a MicroSD slot is the ATIV S, I don't think that's going to be a huge deal breaker. I thought I'd have a problem with my Lumia 900 not having a MicroSD card (first phone in a long time I've owned that hasn't had it), but thanks to cloud storage and intelligent backup, as well as excellent music and video streaming services, I'm less reliant on onboard storage. Also, larger capacity models will be available for those who want it.
