Anssi Vanjoki resigns from Nokia

Anssi Vanjoki, Executive Vice President in charge of Mobile Solutions (Symbian and MeeGo devices) and a member of the Nokia Group Executive Board, has resigned.

Why mobile advertising is benefiting from innovation

What’s the most used internet application on your Symbian phone?
