Nokia Chases Blogger To Recover N8 Prototype 122

boris writes "Nokia has approached Russian authorities to retrieve its N8 prototype from blogger Eldar Murtazin, in a case similar to Apple iPhone 4/Gizmodo fiasco. In its official blog, Nokia said, 'we formally requested the return of all unauthorized Nokia property from Mr. Murtazin and he declined to respond. As a result, we have contacted the Russian authorities to assist us in the return of all unauthorized Nokia property.'"

    So, in 30 years from now, when the world looks back on current events and news stories as inspiration for movies - is this what they're going to be about?

    If so...


    Think Jason Bourne meets Verizon guy.

    Truth hurts, eh Nokia fanboys?

    I've owned Nokia phones. They were great in the 90s. Then they took forever to start shipping quad band handsets, and I switched to Sony Ericsson. Then they went through that period where most of [] their designs [] looked like they were put together by crack-smoking monkeys.

    Then came Maemo. The N770 looked interesting. I saw them drop support for it and bring out the N800. I actually bought one of those, and they dropped support for it and brought out the N810. Then they dropped support for that and brought out the N900, with a smaller screen. Meanwhile, Maemo was GTK... then it was switching to Qt... and now it's dead, replaced by MeeGo. No doubt in another year they'll drop all support for fixes for the N900, and a year after MeeGo is released they'll drop it for something else, and all the while they'll be asking why developers aren't interested in their platform and users aren't interested in their phones.

  • Nokia is Finnish. You know what happens when da russkies piss off finns?
    Fuckin' Winter War! That's what! And continuation war if they are not satisfied with the body count of the first one!

    Putin and whatever-the-official-president-is are probably right now personally crawling around, trying to get back the Finnish marvel of forbidden technology, lest Tarja bestows them with unimaginable horrors of "motti".

Someone is unenthusiastic about your work.
