Stepping Out

Nokia World 2010 served as an introduction party for some, as the companys recently named CTO Rich Green marks time as a spokesperson at a major Nokia event. Formerly an executive at Sun Microsystems, Green joined Nokia as CTO in May.

Stepping Out

Goodbye

While some like Green were ushered in, others such as Anssi Vanjoki, executive vice president of mobile solutions at Nokia, announced plans to leave the company. During a keynote address, Vanjoki said this will be his last Nokia World, at least from the Nokia side of things.

Goodbye

Stepping Up

Meanwhile, Purnima Kochikar, vice president of Forum Nokia, stepped up her game in announcing enhancements to the Nokia Qt software development kit (SDK), improvements in the Ovi Store, and lowering the barrier to entry and increased monetization opportunities for developers during a keynote address.
