In more Apple news today, Apple has hired the lead of Nokia Lumia’s camera division. Ari Partinen, who according to his LinkedIn profile has a wealth of photography experience in Nokia cameras since 2007, announced on Twitter that he is leaving for Apple next month.
He has worked on legendary Nokia camera phones like the N8 and the 808 PureView and it’s this experience that could have earned him a top job at Apple. There is no official word yet on what Partenin will be doing at Apple, but his profile says he has not only worked as a commercial photographer, but also worked with mobile imaging.
With the Nokia-Microsoft deal finalised, the new formed Microsoft Phone division has a lot to streamline, although Nokia has struggled for market share with its Lumia line of Windows Phone devices, it praised for pushing innovative camera technology on flagship models like the Lumia 920, and the Lumia 1020 with a 41 Megapixel camera.
