Nokia goes after Apple (with words, not phones)

Nokia went after Apple today as part of their Nokia World event, taking issue with how Apple counts mobile devices (Nokia only counts phones), and how Apple SVP of iOS, Scott Forstall, appropriated Nokia's connecting people meme and dared to make it happy.

Unfortunately, where it counts, with innovative, mind-share stealing smartphones Nokia still seems to be lost in multiple OS' and iterative hardware. What's more they've recently exchanged their longtime CEO for a former Macromedia and Microsoft business exec, Stephen Elop, and their lead designer and VP of mobile solutions, Anssi Vanjoki is moving on as well. A cross-roads to be sure. (And one that still doesn't seem to have a clear path to North American carrier support).

Our own Matt Miller is there covering the event for Nokia Experts and ZDNet, and if there's anyone who loves those devices and those platforms, it's Matt, so check out his complete Nokia World Coverage.
