Ten days ago, Nokia’s head of MeeGo stepped down for “personal reasons.” Now, it appears as though the jettisoned executive, Ari Jaaksi, will take a position with HP/Palm as the senior vice president of webOS. AllThingsD reports that Jaaksi will assume his new role sometime in November. HP & Co. also added Victoria Coleman, former head of Samsung’s research and development center in San Jose, to their payroll. HP certainly is stacking their mobile division’s deck with seasoned, experienced executives from all corners of the industry. Let’s hope the moves bear fruit… and soon!
