VP of product marketing Ilari Nurmi was in charge of the company's entire smartphone strategy. It remains unknown why the executive left after 15 years with little more than a Tweet.
The move follows Nokia's recent launch of the Lumia 820 and 920, flagship Windows Phone 8 devices, which were well received but left the consumer with questions, mainly the price and release date.
More embarrassingly for the company, Nokia was found to have faked a promotional video, using a professional DSLR camera to take photos and pretending they were taken with a Nokia device instead.
I have left Nokia. I am thankful for almost 15y there. I wish Nokia all the best and look forward to getting Lumia 920 once available.-- Ilari Nurmi (@IlariNurmi) October 7, 2012
