You may already know about Juha Alakarhu, the head of imaging earlier at Nokia and later at Microsoft. Juha, the man behind many PureView imaging advancements has decided to join Nokia Technologies now leaving his current job at Microsoft. It looks like a great news for those waiting for Nokia Android phones with “great cameras”, as confirmed coming by our sources, though currently Juha has joined the OZO team as head of imaging. But Nokia is well-known for giving wider responsibilities to its top talents.
A small announcement: today was my first day in Nokia Technologies! I am now new Head of Imaging in the Ozo team.

Coming to what it may mean for Surface Phone, Microsoft has consistently highlighted a business focus for its upcoming Windows 10 Mobile smartphone. So, it is not clear what level of focus the imaging will have in such scenario, but Juha’s departure is not less than a blow for fans and may be for Microsoft too!!
