    Nokia CEO says owning an iPhone is “embarrassing”, throws one on the ground

    In a rather awkward interview on national Finnish television show, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop didn’t hesitate to unequivocally call the iPhone “embarrassing” after the interviewer showed him his Apple smartphone. Shortly after that, Elop threw said smartphone on the ground.
    In his nagging for more information regarding the yet unofficial, but highly rumored Lumia 928, the interviewer shared to Elop that he uses an iPhone, but also expressed his disappointment with the device and a desire to change it for a Lumia 928. Apparently, Elop felt he had no choice, but to throw the expensive smartphone away.
    Elop soon comforted the TV reporter that he would have his iPhone replaced for a brand new Nokia, although it’s not clear what phone would Nokia’s CEO give him. My bet goes for a Lumia 920.
    Check out the part of the interview in question from the video below.

    You can say that again. He was the embarrassing part in this. I'm surprised Elop didn't slap him.

    Elop - former Microsoft VP and now CEO of Nokia doesn't want you to buy an iPhone. Shocked.

    I actually quite like the Lumnia line. If I couldn't have an iPhone I'd own a Lumnia for sure.

    Really? Because it's funny that this guy reminded me of Steve Ballmer lol...now it makes sense. It must be the cultural values he brought from MS.

    Yes. And the first thing he did when joining Nokia was to cancel their in-house OS's developments and adapt Windows Phone Mobile as their primary platform. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Elop

    You know whats embarrasing? Windows mobile. I used to love Nokia phones all through the 00's now days the only phones I use are Experia for their great standby run time.
