Nokia reduce development time by 40% with Windows Phone

Published by at

Talking to the Wall Street Journal ahead of Nokia World, Nokia's Jo Harlow talks about the advantages and efficiencies implemented inside Nokia alongside the adoption of Windows Phone.

Ms. Harlow said the changes have encouraged her smartphone teams to make decisions themselves, instead of kicking them upstairs. Their greater autonomy, she said, has helped reduce the time it takes to develop new smarthphones by 35% to 40%.

She declined to be more specific. But a company spokesman said that Nokia's lead time in the past matched the industry average of 18 months.

There's sure to be more on this tomorrow from ExCeL and Nokia World, and we'll be ther to bring you all the news as it happens.
