Nokia Taps Ex-Microsoft Exec As Their Next CEO

Nokia used to be the top of the food chain when it came to cell phones and smart phones. Not anymore. They’ve been in free fall for some time and needed a change in strategy. Stephen Elop who was head of Microsoft’s business division is now the new CEO of Nokia according to a posting on the Nokia website. Another interesting point, he’s Canadian. Perhaps he’ll give Nokia some insight on how to fight Canadian company Research In Motion. Perhaps he can help fight Apple too.

Good luck to him. Given Nokia’s recent track record, he needs it.
