Nokia’s CTO Says, Keep It Simple


Business 2.0 : As phones become increasingly complex, the industry must make them easier to use, says Pertti Korhonen, chief technology officer for Nokia (NOK). I sat down with Korhonen this week to sound him out on the industry and its future. He also talked about iPod and how it has established a benchmark for mobile music devices. “Apple has set the benchmark, and we have to not only meet but exceed that. Nokia is working on it, but you have to also take into account the mobile platforms. In the end, for mobile music to take off, the cost of service and the user interface are going to be key. It is an opportunity for us to use the UI to create a unique mobile experience.” Here are some excerpts from that interview.



I am trying to find a supplier of who will enable me to stay connected whilst I am on the move. At present, if I want to use internet I must come a room where the PC with broadband connection lives. This is a bit restrictive for my needs.

I want a service provider who can help me stay connected on the move. I am home in the morning… have my laptop on the breakfast table if I choose to.

Afternoon requires to be somewhere else… I want to be able to take my laptab with me and stay connected…

Evening time, I have some working role to play in my capacity as an observer some play for the sake of argument… I want to be able to carry my laptop with me and do some work or just surf the net…

Is this possible now?
