The BGR Show: Episode 9 – Interview with Nokia’s EVP of smart devices, Jo Harlow

Nokia Jo Harlow Interview 2012

This week we sit down with Jo Harlow, the executive vice president in charge of Nokia’s (NOK) smart devices, to talk about the company’s current and future lineup as well as Nokia’s challenges and hurdles. Nokia is obviously deeply invested in Windows Phone, but how much of a role will Microsoft (MSFT) play in the company’s future? What about Windows 8? Well, from our conversation, it sounds like Nokia is interested in building a tablet, and we think Nokia might even release one in the coming months. All this and more on this week’s episode of The BGR Show.

The head of Nokia’s smartphones talks new products, where Nokia is going, and what could have been done better. We look at the Nokia Lumia 900, Microsoft’s brand new Windows Phone 8 software, and the brand’s first tablet.
