Nokia's last stand: can the 147-year-old company design its way back? (Wired UK)

""Windows Phone is already a step in this direction," he adds. "We'll see much more innovation through what we call the heads-up principle."

He follows this with a well-rehearsed critique of the "very similar" user interfaces on iOS and Android, which he describes as "dated" but "very interesting".
