Stephen Elop to be fired before end of the year
First let me say:
- Blogger and customer reviews do nothing to keep a CEO around
- Revenue GROWTH is what helps a CEO help keep their job
- Shareholders are ultimately in charge of who stays on and who gets shown the door
I personally think Elop is a great speaker and inspiring but his strategy is really flawed. Apple is going to sell upwards of 50 million iPhones this quarter and Android will sell 90 million ( 1 million activation a day x 90 days in a quarter) so even if Nokia DOUBLES their Lumia sales they will still lose marketshare.
What Nokia needs to do is to do the Samsung and HTC strategy and start making WP and Android phones. It makes no sense to tie themselves to Microsoft when they have the smallest platform and they have been bleeding revenue and profits for over a year trying to follow Ballmer's dream for the future.
