Nokia's Chairman of the Board Jorma Ollila also leaving
Well, well, well, it looks like the Old Guard is really out at Nokia. After the CEO was given the boot on Friday, and Anssi Vanjoki gave his six months notice today, another iconic name in Nokia will be leaving.

Jorma Ollila, the Chairman of the Board since 1999, will step out in 2012. He was Nokia's CEO from 1992 to 2006, when he promoted Kallasvuo to the position and, some say, has been the most influential person in Nokia during all that time. Wow, we are certainly waiting with baited breath for the changes in Nokia's strategy, looks like they are going all-in this time.

"Wow, we are certainly waiting with baited breath for the changes in Nokia's strategy..." Like what? Android on a Nokia? Paying Apple royalties to use iOS?

I wouldn't mind if it were either one of these.. though of course the 2nd one is highly unlikely to happen.

If either of those happen(ios or android on a nokia handset), it will not be good for nokia. Symbian and MeeGo are two perfectly good os's for nokia. They do not need ios or android. I am in total agreement with DonthateonS60. I don't know if Jorma and Anssi leaving is for the best, only time will tell. I hope everything works out for the best with nokia and with all the changes going on they stay true to their fans.

A king is after all a king . when people see clearly android and ios, they will find nokia has too much advantages.
