Nokia CEO Literally Throws An iPhone On The Floor On TV [VIDEO]

Interview

Stephen Elop, the CEO of Nokia Corporation and a Canadian citizen, literally threw an iPhone on the floor during an interview on Finnish TV, when asked about some upcoming products (via WMPoweruser). The show, which is called “Hjalliksen kanssa” (“With Hjallis”), aired yesterday evening at biggest Finnish commercial TV station MTV3.

During the interview, the presenter tells Elop he has an iPhone, and pulls it out of his pocket to prove it. “Oh, how embarrassing,” responds Elop. The presenter then says he wants to have a Nokia phone, implying that he can’t currently own one because the devices aren’t as good as the iPhone. At this point, Elop snatches the presenter’s iPhone and lobs it off camera, saying “I can take care of that for you right here, there you go”, promising to replace it with a Nokia device.

    With that display, if I were the presenter, I wouldn’t get a Nokia replacement, if my life depended on it. That was such a low class move. Talking down is something physically throwing a competing product is a show of Nokia’s failure. But then again, maybe Elop knows very well: the only way to get an iPhone owner to give up his iPhone and replace it with a Nokia will be to physically break the iPhone and tell him, he has no choice but a Nokia 🙂

    “The presenter then says he wants to have a Nokia phone, but he can’t currently own one because the devices aren’t as good as the iPhone.”

    Lies, he never said this. Not even close. He said he wanted the unreleased Lumia 928.

    He tried to make it funny but overkilled it just by tiny bit. Next time, Nokia, next time.

    Why lie in the article when you have the video posted? And why delete comments pointing this fact out? Shame.
