Rajeev Suri is the New Nokia President and CEO

The Devices and Services arm of Nokia has officially been transferred to Microsoft.  This means future Lumia phones will be coming from Microsoft, not Nokia.  The transfer of Nokia’s mobile business has also necessitated the appointment of a new CEO.

Nokia is now headed by Rajeev Suri.  He is stepping into the shoes previously worn by Stephen Elop.
