Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop recently sat down for an interview with a Finnish news outlet. The host of the show kept asking about Nokia’s rumored Lumia 928, but Elop wouldn’t discuss it at all, simply saying that he didn’t know anything about the device because it wasn’t announced yet. Elop said his announcement was that the Lumia 620 is going to launch in Finland.
The host kept pushing Elop, though, asking “928, when is it coming out?” before taking out his iPhone. “How embarrassing ” Elop said. “I can take care of that for you right here.” Elop then lobbed the phone off camera. “It’s gone,” he said laughing.
Oh how we love competition. Obviously Elop meant no harm, but it did sound like the iPhone made a pretty hard landing.
