New Nokia CEO sees US as trend-setter

He cites the "clamshell" phone as an example of a style that caught on first in the U.S. and then spread throughout the world. This may be true, but the conventional wisdom says U.S. GSM/CDMA networks are consistently lagging behind the homogeneous cellular networks in Japan and most of Europe. Blog
