Nokia Only Cared About Megapixels

Bits confirms much of what has been inferred or assumed over the last few years regarding Nokia: up until this week, they couldn't have cared less about software or design. This quote, from Nokia's former head of design, says it all:

"The engineers at Nokia brag about the number of megapixels a new phone has," he said in a telephone interview on Thursday. "But they don't understand that if you can't find the button to use the camera on the phone, it doesn't matter how many megapixels it is."




I'm sorry, but Nokia's former head of design is among the people to blame for the position nokia is in. There was nothing wrong with the hardware made by the engineers. The interface design sucked ass and I imagine that was among the responsibilities of the head of design.

Bastard is trying to pass the blame to the engineers.
