Nokia is pursuing legal action against Eldar Murtazin. Nokia mainly wants to get the following message out:
“To be perfectly clear, we have asked Mr. Murtazin for the return of all Nokia property in his possession. As he has declined to reply, we asked the Russian authorities to assist us. We leave it to the Russian authorities to determine the most appropriate course of action.”
It was repeated several times throughout their official statement. The “property” Nokia speaks of are the phones that Murtazin has, or had, in his possession. Nokia apparently doesn’t like people having pre-released phones in the wild that they didn’t authorize. This move, while a little extravagant for my tastes, is not unlike a certain company with a partially eaten fruit logo. Full statement is available from Nokia Conversations.
