Nokia 'imposing its standard on industry'
Posted: 04-Feb-2002 [Source: FT]

[Openwave CEO, Don Listwin, accuses Nokia of keeping his company out of a joint initiative to develop a common wireless standard.]

by Richard Waters, New York and Nick George, Stockholm -- "The main competitor to Nokia in creating software for mobile data networks has accused the Finnish company of shutting it out of efforts to develop a common standard for the wireless industry.

"The move proves Nokia is "trying to impose its own standard as the industry standard", said Don Listwin, chief executive of Openwave.

"Niklas Savander, vice-president Nokia Mobile Software, countered that Openwave had "not been the model child of openness" itself in the past. However, he added that the US company was likely to be "among the first new members" once Nokia is ready to admit outsiders.

"The skirmishes over software standards reflects Nokia's efforts to stop Microsoft from dominating the young mobile data world as it has in the personal computer business.

"If Microsoft or another company succeeds in controlling the operating system behind mobile data networks, the highly profitable Nokia could face the fate of low-margin PC makers.
