Nokia’s executive vice president of mobile solutions, Anssi Vanjoki, let an interesting analogy go when speaking with the Financial Times today. When asked about the possibility of his company switching mobile operating systems from Symbian to Android, Mr. Vanjoki compared the prospective move to Finnish boys who “pee in their pants” during the winter months for warmth; the temporary relief acquired is soon followed by a larger issue. Nokia obviously feels it can differentiate and add value to the mobile experience with Symbian and Meego; a task it presumably would find difficult with Android. Regardless, we salute you Mr. Vanjoki for one of the most epic analogies we’ve heard from an EVP. Also… do Finnish boys really pee their pants in the winter?
