Nokia's CEO answers questions about PureView and more

Nokia's CEO answers questions about PureView and more
Nokia CEO Stephen Elop took to the video camera to answer some questions left by visitors to Nokia's booth at Microsoft TechEd in Orlando. Will there be a Nokia PureView Windows Phone for Verizon? What is Nokia's strategy for Windows Phone in the low-end of the market for developing countries? What is the incentive for a developer to write for Windows Phone when the market is dominated by Apple and Android?

Mr. Elop notes that Nokia has a laser focus in the States on working with carriers to sell Nokia Lumia devices. He did say that Nokia is interested in selling devices that are unique to each carrier and adds that PureView will be coming to other devices in the future. Another technology that the executive seemed high on is NFC with eight Nokia smartphones in the marketplace. Nokia has different NFC enabled models covering different price points and geographical areas.

For those who think that a takeover of Nokia is in the works, watching this video will wipe that thought from your mind as the CEO seems confident about  the future of Nokia with the Nokia Lumia line and the PureView technology. Meanwhile, in the midst of all of this optimism in the corporate boardroom, Nokia's stock made a 16 year low on Monday with the stock dropping 8% on the day.

The stock market nad news headlines seem far more nervy about Nokia than Nokia does. I have been investing and going long. One theme I cant argue with is that devices are only going to be a portal into a large system of services. Google and Microsoft and are really the onlly big time players that can deliver in that arena and maybe Facebook. Apple might have a pretty tough time in 5 years if they start getting non-exclusive access anymore.

I've only seen three CEOs that I believe are authentic. Meaning ones that don't bulls**t there way to the top, ones that speak their minds, and not their mouths. These CEOs when they speak, you feel a sense of passion from them. They are Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Steve Ballmer.

Do you honestly think even for a second that Symbian, MeeGo, Android, iOS and Blackberry users will use your Windows Phone? After how you killed Symbian, MeeGo and possibly Meltemi? After being anti Linux and Open Source and Open Architecture, the mortal enemy of your slavedriver, Microsoft, do you expect us to trust you with our data? After what has been said against Android, iOS and Blackberry? After KILLING your VERY OWN Windows Phone 7.5 just 6 months after launching the Lumia 900 FLAGSHIP phone? What will make us think that you won't kill off Windows Phone 8 soon as we invest on it and got locked in by the carrier for 24 months or more? Really? I mean, seriously? Really?
