For example, there is intense heat coming from our competitors, more rapidly than we ever expected. Apple disrupted the market by redefining the smartphone and attracting developers to a closed, but very powerful ecosystem.

The nicely written letter delivers the cold truth analyzing the reasons for the poor results they've been having lately. Some of the reasons he lists include clinging to a hard to sustain platform such as Symbian, taking too much time to deliver the innovations developed internally, and failing to attract third party innovations like Google does. Not to mention making some poor decisions thus missing big trends.

The battle of devices has now become a war of Adidas Y3 Hacienda Trainers

As a conclusion, Stephen Elop marks that Nokia competitors "are taking [Nokia's] market share with an entire ecosystems", which include "not only the hardware and software of the device, but developers, applications, ecommerce, advertising, search, social applications, location based services, unified communications and many other things."

And then, there is Android. In about two years, Android created a platform that attracts application developers, service providers and hardware manufacturers. Android came in at the high end, they are now winning the mid range, and quickly they Adidas Y3 Zg Knit Boost

We too, are standing on a "burning platform," and we must decide how we are going to change our behaviour.

He decided to jump. It was unexpected. In ordinary circumstances, the man would never consider plunging into icy waters. But these were not ordinary times his platform was on fire. The man survived the fall and the waters. After he was rescued, he noted that a "burning platform" caused a radical change in his behaviour.

There is a pertinent story about a man who was working on an oil platform in the North Sea. He woke up one night from a loud explosion, which suddenly set his entire oil platform on fire. In mere moments, he was surrounded by flames. Through the smoke and heat, he barely made his way out of the chaos to the platform's edge. When he looked down over the edge, all he could see were the dark, cold, foreboding Atlantic waters.

And the truly perplexing aspect is that we're not even fighting with the right weapons. We are still too often trying to approach each price range on a device to device basis.

Here's the full internal memo by Stephen Elop:

are going downstream to phones under 100. Google has become a gravitational force, drawing much of the industry's innovation to its core.

As the fire approached him, the man had mere seconds to react. He could stand on the platform, and inevitably be consumed by Adidas Sl 72 Trainers Leopard

Let's not forget about the low end price range. In 2008, MediaTek supplied complete reference designs for phone chipsets, which enabled manufacturers in the Shenzhen region of China to produce phones at an unbelievable pace. By some accounts, this ecosystem now produces more than one third of the phones sold globally taking share from us in emerging markets.

He goes on suggesting that Nokia's strategy should change to "either build, catalyse or join an ecosystem." And obviously, they've already made the choice as Stephen Elop promises that we'll learn all about Nokia's new strategy on 11 February at a dedicated press/analyst event in London.

At the midrange, we have Symbian. It has proven to be non competitive in leading markets like North America. Additionally, Symbian is proving to be an increasingly difficult environment in which to develop to meet the continuously expanding consumer requirements, leading to slowness in product development and also creating a disadvantage when we seek to take advantage of new hardware platforms. As a result, if we continue like before, we will get further and further behind, while our competitors advance further and further ahead.

And, we have more than one explosion we have multiple points of scorching heat that are fuelling a blazing fire around us.

´╗┐CEO Stephen Elop admits Nokia's poor track record

Adidas Originals Sl 72 Trainers Leopard

I have learned that we are standing on a burning platform.

In 2008, Apple's market share in the $300+ price range was 25 percent; by 2010 it escalated to 61 percent. They are enjoying a tremendous growth trajectory with a 78 percent earnings growth year over year in Q4 2010. Apple demonstrated that if designed well, consumers would buy a high priced phone with a great experience and developers would build applications. They changed the game, and today, Apple owns the high end range.

While competitors poured flames on our market share, what happened at Nokia? We fell behind, we missed big trends, and we lost time. At that time, we thought we were making the right decisions; but, with the benefit of hindsight, we now find ourselves years behind.

Elop described the next step Nokia will take as "a bold and brave step into Adidas Originals Sl 72 Trainers Leopard an uncertain future". We can't wait to hear what plans they're going to announce the day after tomorrow.

ecosystems, where ecosystems include not only the hardware and software of the device, but developers, applications, ecommerce, advertising, search, social applications, location based services, unified communications and many other things. Our competitors aren't taking our market share with devices; they are taking our market share with an entire ecosystem. This means we're going to have to decide how we either build, catalyse or join an ecosystem.

At the lower end price range, Chinese OEMs are cranking out a device much faster than, as one Nokia employee said only partially in jest, "the time that it takes us to polish a PowerPoint presentation." They are fast, they are cheap, and they are challenging us.

We just got wind of an internal Nokia memo created by Stephen Elop, Nokia's recently appointed CEO, in which he describes how the reasons for Nokia's shrinking market share and brand preference.

This is one of the decisions we need to make. In the meantime, we've lost market share, we've lost mind share and we've lost time.

The first iPhone shipped in 2007, and we still don't have a product that is close to their experience. Android came on the scene just over 2 years ago, and this week they took our leadership position in smartphone volumes. Unbelievable.

the burning flames. Or, he could plunge 30 meters in to the freezing waters. The man was standing upon a "burning platform," and he needed to make a choice.

Over the past few months, I've shared with you what I've heard from our shareholders, operators, developers, suppliers and from you. Today, I'm going to share what I've learned and what I have come to believe.

We have some brilliant sources of innovation inside Nokia, but we are not bringing it to market fast enough. We thought MeeGo would be a platform for winning high end smartphones. However, at this rate, by the end of 2011, we might have only one MeeGo product in the market.
