    As posted in Phonescoop:

    "Nokia today announced that both President Pekka Ala Pietila and CEO Jorma Ollila will step down in the first half next year. Ollila has led Nokia since 1992 and oversaw the company becoming the mobile phone giant it is today. Although Nokia still leads manufacturers in market share, analysts have recently been disappointed by the company's financial performance as much of Nokia's sales shifts to developing markets. The "new blood" who will lead Nokia as they face the challenges of the next mobile generation is mobile phone division leader Olli Pekka Kallasvuo. Kallasvuo has been with Nokia 25 years and is only 2 years younger than Ollila, bringing into question just how revolutionary his new leadership will be, however analysts sound confident about the choice."

    Here is the complete story on Yahoo:

    Nokia picks Kallasvuo to succeed Ollila as CEO

    Thanks for the post Charylee. We'll have to see if it means any big change in the direction or type of phones they offer. Most likely not, I would think.

    Hopefully they will shake things up. Nokia needs to only change a few things to be competitive again (better screen type, quadband, more flips, higher end CDMA phones). :)

    I agree and I can even do without the flips, the quadband and the better screen type will do for me. :)

    I doubt they will move away from the menu system that they are known for. I also doubt they will move from the ACP7u charger that works accross almost there entire product line. I just gave my old charger which I don't need to a friend of mine who needs one.

    If it comess out for VZW. If it doesn't it is suposed to be available unlocked via the Nokia website. My NE2 credit is available 3 days before my birthday so I have a while to decide which phone I will get. So far thought the Motorola e815 is still my first choice.

    USCC is supposed to be getting it. It will be kind of ironic if Nokia's first high end CDMA flip phone, complete with BT, is picked by a regional carrier like USCC and not Verizon, the carrier with the largest footprint.
