Nokia Shuffles Handset Bosses

Susan Hall

Nokia has undertaken its second management shakeup in a year as it struggles to compete with the smartphones of Apple and Research in Motion, according to a Dow Jones story in The Wall Street Journal.


It says Nokia's Devices and Services business will be split into three units: Mobile Solutions, Mobile Phones, and Markets.


Bloomberg reports that as of July 1, marketing chief Anssi Vanjoki will be the new smartphones chief, and Mary McDowell, who heads corporate development, will head low-end mobile phones, taking over for Rick Simonson, the former CFO who headed low-end phones for only seven months.
