Former Vice President of MeeGo Devices at Nokia Ari Jaaksi began a new role earlier this month with Hewlett-Packard, where he is now a Senior Vice President. Jaaksi’s LinkedIn profile states simply, “I run webOS and services @ HP.” The former Nokia exec left the company earlier this year after a 12-year tenure with the Finnish phone giant. Most recently, Jaaksi was VP in charge of MeeGo, Nokia’s next-generation Linux-based OS being developed through a partnership with Intel. Rumors that Jaaksi would be hired by HP first surfaced last month, when it was thought that he would join the company to oversee Palm devices. Instead, it looks as though Jaaksi’s role will focus on software and services.
