MeeGo Conference keynote highlights time to market advantage

The opening keynote at the MeeGo Conference highlighted MeeGo's time to market advantage. Guest speakers from Nissan (IVI), 4tiitoo (Tablet) and Amino (TV) all noted that they had chosen MeeGo because it was open source and because it gave them a time to market advantage. However, with the exception of MeeGo 1.2 integration updates, concrete news announcements were thin on the ground, reflecting MeeGo's continuing position as a platform with future potential.

At its Strategy and Financial Briefing event today in London, Nokia has outlined its "new strategic direction, including changes in leadership and operational structure to accelerate the company's speed of execution in a dynamic competitive environment". Some more quotes below, but in short this means a reorganisation into "Smart Devices" and "Mobile Phones", and adding a new OS platform to its portfolio, with Windows Phone becoming Nokia's "primary smartphone platform" and Symbian becoming "a franchise platform, leveraging previous investments to harvest additional value". More below, and more through the day, of course. Rafe's on the ground, see the other Coveritlive news item.

Marko Ahtisaari at LeWeb 2010

Marko Ahtisaari, SVP of industrial design at Nokia, was one of the guest speakers at this year's LeWeb Conference. He covered topics from dominant designs of smartphone user interface and collective intelligence with mobile devices. He outlined why he sees that there's plenty of work to be done in the world of mobile user experience, particularly in having mobile devices actually demand less of our attention. In his view, iOS is "beautifully elegant and fantastically constrained", while Symbian and Android actually share the same design pattern but differ greatly in their business models. Read on for a in-depth account of the speech and Q&A session.
