Nokia loses another technology chief

Ref: Nokia`s chief technology officer Rich Green has taken a leave of absence from the mobile phone giant.

An official Nokia statement said he had left to resolve a “personal matter” and gave no date for his return.

However, a Finnish newspaper quoted sources inside Nokia saying he had left because of differences over strategy and would not return.

Mr Green was known to champion the MeeGo mobile operating system which Nokia recently sidelined.

That decision was brought about by Nokia boss Stephen Elop`s decision to adopt Microsoft`s Windows Phone software for its smartphones.
