Nokia’s VP of Services, Niklas Savander

Whenever anyone sits down Niklas Savander, Executive Vice President of Nokia Services (e.g. Ovi), they ask him routine and dare we say, BORING, questions. And whilst we’d love to quiz Niklas about the intricacies of Nokia Maps, Ovi Store and so on, we thought it would be rather useful to put some different questions to the chap, to find out how he ticks.

The first question we asked? What was your first ever mobile handset.

The last question we asked? What was the first album you ever bought.

Oh yes. Niklas proved to be a fun, engaging chap. Ben did the interview whilst Dan took supplementary footage and I pointed the camera.

Grab a coffee — it’s a short video, just 9:58 minutes long — and enjoy:

Thanks for taking the time to sit down with us, Niklas!

    Slade? Def Leopard? Hope this guy has got some bright young things hooking him in.

    Or is he mainly a management / make-the-numbers bod? In which case, rock on!

    Kudos MIR for the interview — we learn that a former HP sales rep is in charge of Nokia's service strategy. Take that GOOG & AAPL.

    P.S. I realize I sound like an *arse* (Trade Mark MIR) in the above comments. Must be Monday. Savander did O.K. at Nokia World if you can excuse the black turtle neck. I'm still a Nokia fanboi. Ovi oughta work out eventually.
