Former Nokia Exec: Windows Phone Strategy Doomed 447

itwbennett writes "Slashdot readers will recall that back in January, Nokia CEO Steven Elop blamed the company's Windows Phone woes on commission-minded salespeople, who pushed phones they thought would actually sell. Now, ex-Nokia exec Tomi Ahonen is calling the Nokia's Windows Phone strategy 'a certain road to death.'

In just one quarter!' Can MeeGo or Tizen save Nokia now?"
