    • Here is the Hero on the call:

      Mark Sue - RBC Capital Markets

      Thank you. Stephen, I look over the past few years (Inaudible) locking and tackling trying to get the out and we are still trying to see a sustainable ramp. And since the big Nokia deal just how much cash flow will end up eventually. And, right now your partner Microsoft seems to be preoccupied. Should we expect any this step function of improvement just kind of the really external development in smart phones or do you really think about now in your scope of time?

      Stephen Elop - President and Chief Executive Officer, Chairman of Nokia Leadership Team, Director

      Your voice was a little broken up there, but let me try. I think I got the essence of the question. At the heart of it, it is a hard challenge to build this third ecosystem. But you see a pattern forming in terms of the volumes that we are producing and certainly in terms of the acolytes that are coming for a differentiated products at a time where some of our principal competitors seem to be and rinsing and reusing previous products and not exciting customers as much as I think we are with some of our most recent offerings.

      You mentioned our partner Microsoft. I mean, part of what they are preoccupied with is in fact increase in the emphasis on a devices and services strategy and they clearly recognize the importance of having a strong partner in Nokia in order to fulfill that strategy, so we look at the work that they're doing for example, the clear direction of bringing Windows and Windows Phone together under consistent leadership which of course will translate into a better developer experience which means more applications for Lumia devices. We see a number of those things as very positive indicators.

      I think the other thing that's been important and that we are pleased with, you'll see this for example in the days and weeks ahead with the Lumia 1020 launch is the amount of alignment between ourselves, Microsoft and the operator in this

      • case AT&T on a very, very consistent aligned optimized set of marketing messages is much, much better than it was a year ago.

        If you go back a year, you can see a bunches stuff out there about hey it's about Windows Phone and hey it's about the fastest 4G LTE network and hey it's about Lumia., but we've work through that to the point where it's going to be hey, this is what this product is capable of and here is why you should buy it and I think that's going to help us as we go forward.

    • Elop, of course, has credibility
