DUBLIN -- My wireless journal has some scribblings related to a two-hour Nokia Media Briefing that I attended today. These briefings have long passed the point where voice quality and phone appearance could influence the market. Now it's about voice, appearance, cameraphone functionality, enterprise mobility, and gaming. Within a year, Nokia will have to add several briefing slides on memory features of the phones because many of the ones I saw today have video capability on board.
Nokia remains committed to an extensive portfolio, living with the mantra, "The breadth of our portfolio is our success." Actually, I think Nokia phones can make clever fashion statements that translate into comfortable margins at the cash till. Nokia phones have the most user-friendly interface for mobile phones on the planet. One of the first questions concerned a talking point batted around by bloggers: "What does Nokia think about Apple's mobile phone?"
