Nokia’s fall from grace: The Background Story

Yesterday, Tomi Ahonen posted yet another magnum opus chronicling Nokia under Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo’s reign. It makes for absolutely compelling reading, especially — and I mean especially — if you’re drinking the Apple Koolaid, or if you are curious as to how Nokia was once regarded as an impregnable super-brand and now is effectively relegated to […]
