Presentation is wrapping up. What I’ve gathered primarily from the press conference aside from the expected product announcements is the major shift of Nokia’s focus from connectivity of phone calls to intensely expanding further into other platforms, primarily computing and also changing what people think of when you mention Nokia.
During the Q&A several times mention was made of “mobile phones” The responses all began by using the term mulitmedia computers.
Also when asked if Nokia was planning on going head-to-head against Apple in terms of content and creating a music store. No direct clear-cut response was given.
