Departing Nokia Exec: Using Android for Smartphones Is Like Peeing Your Pants for Warmth

 

Anssi Vanjoki, outgoing head of Nokia’s smartphone division, likens mobile phone makers that adopt Google’s software to Finnish boys who ‘pee in their pants’ for warmth in the winter.”

–This is an actual quote from a Financial Times article on Nokia’s commitment to its own OSes, most notably Symbian, over Google’s Android. Engadget wins with their headline on this — “CE-Oh no he didn’t!” — although Anssi Vanjoki was technically an executive vice president rather than Nokia’s CEO, and indeed one of the reasons he left the company is because he was passed over for the top slot.
