Nokia CEO Stephen Elop interview at CES 2012

 

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop is arguably the busiest man at CES. But he took some time out of his schedule to talk to Nokia Conversations readers in our exclusive video, and answer our questions about the Nokia Lumia 900.

On the eve of his big speech at CES 2012, Mr Elop was in an upbeat mood, clearly relishing the big launch in the USA today.

“We are designing products precisely for the North American consumer, and the Nokia Lumia 900 is an example of this,” he said.

He also spoke of the need to create more choice and the “need to engage in the war of ecosystems, where clearly there are some strong contenders already on the field”.

But perhaps most inspiring was the attitude he revealed towards his colleagues at Nokia.

“When I started at Nokia, I asked employees three questions – what should I change, what shouldn’t I change and what might I miss.

“They said it was important to reach out to employees and understand what is happening in the field.

“That advice is what led us here today.”
