How did Nokia get into this crisis? Pretty simple, just like the motor companies got into their crisis, they stopped building products that the people wanted to buy. They all got to big and thought they would decide what the people wanted, the N8 should help them get back on track.

At first I was to trying to defend Nokia becuase I still believe in them. But after reading this article, i was turned off with Nokia. Their committee is more stubborn than steve jobs. They focus on gaining profit and not on innovation itself. I was an apple hater before, but now it turns to be that I am an official apple fanboy. The reason is because even though apple's products are not picture perfect, they are giving their customers what they need. I think my next phone is the iphone. not the E7.

That's a hilarious statement. I could understand being turned off by Nokia if what these 3 whistle blowers have said has any validity. But support of Apple for giving their customers what they "need" instead of what they" want"? Nokia and Apple are no different in that regard. They both give the consumer only what they deem acceptable. They also both work in a closed environment, Apple probably more so than anybody with their notorious "walled garden". At least it appears that Nokia is trying to get their act together now. And really; why hate a companyat all?

I'm sure this case will become a famous scenario used in business management lectures..
