Press release, May 12; Willie Teng, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 12 May 2010]

Nokia will restructure its devices and services businesses into three units - Mobile Solutions, Mobile Phones and Markets - effective on July 1, 2010.

The Mobile Solutions unit will concentrate on the company's high-end mobile computers and smartphones based on the MeeGo and Symbian software platforms respectively. These devices will be integrated with Nokia's Internet services.

The Mobile Phones unit will focus on the feature mobile phone market, and the Markets unit will be responsible for Nokia's 'go-to-market' activities, including sales and marketing, management of supply chains and sourcing operations.

The Mobile Solutions unit will be headed by Anssi Vanjoki and be comprised of MeeGo Computers, led by Alberto Torres, and Symbian Smartphones, led by Jo Harlow. As part of the Mobile Solutions unit, Services - led by Tero Ojanpera - will continue to develop Ovi as an integrated service into smartphones and mobile computers, and lead the development and deployment of new services into Nokia's mobile phones. Nokia has also appointed Rich Green to the position of chief technology officer, assuming responsibility for driving common technology architecture across Nokia.

Mobile Phones and Markets will be headed by Mary McDowell and Niklas Sayander, respectively.

Kai Oistamo assumes the role of chief development officer and head of Corporate Development.

As of July 1, 2010 Nokia's Group Executive Board will consist of the following members: Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, Esko Aho, Juha Akras, Timo Ihamuotila, Mary McDowell, Kai Oistamo, Tero Ojanpera, Niklas Savander, Alberto Torres, and Anssi Vanjoki.
