"Marko said he returned to Nokia because "there is no more exciting space [than mobile]"; he also pointed towards what has become animportant trend for the Nokia in the last few years - the ability to drive social change through technology. This desire, which, in part, springs from the company's Scandanavian DNA, cites Nokia's unmatched scale - 1.1 billion customers in the last two and half years (active device users) - as putting the company in a unique position to help promote and drive social change."
