Nokia looking for new CEO

Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo could be on his way after Nokia's smartphones fail to do the business.

Nokia’s CEO, Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, could be on his way out of the mobile maker. That’s according to insiders, who’ve told the Wall Street Journals that shareholders are tired of the company’s failure to kick it at the top with the iPhone and Google Android.

Those with a stake in Nokia are said to be, “…serious about making a change,” with a move expected to be made before the end of the month. Apparently two US-based suits have been asked to make the move to Espoo.

The Finnish phone fanatic has yet to comment, but will obviously be feeling the heat after the iPhone 4’s huge success despite rabid criticism, not to mention Android’s ability to kick it in top notch and pared down mobiles.

With the flagship Nokia N8 not out for another month and MeeGo about to become the focus, Nokia will need move fast if ‘OPK’ is going to be handed a picture of a Spitfire and sent on his way. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages for more news on this story as it happens.
