Nokia Sends In Cops for N8 Prototype from Eldar Murtazin
This may seem somewhat heavy handed and probably something one would expect from the likes of Apple but this time it is Nokia who have called in the law over a prototype device, namely the Nokia N8 loaned to Mobile-review editor Eldar Murtazin.
According to an article over on Daily Mobile and by way of a Goole translation of Eldar Murtazin’s live journal, Nokia asked for their prototype of the Nokia N8 to be returned and apparently Murtazin refused, although Murtazin has denied any knowledge of Nokia asking for the device to be returned.
The upshot of this is that Nokia has sent in Russian police to raid the Mobile-review office, which does seem a bit on the drastic side if you ask me; perhaps Nokia is looking for an “Apple/Gizmodo” style scandal with their heavy handed attempt.
Maybe Eldar Murtazin has got up Nokia’s mobile nose with his harsh review of the Nokia N8, but there really isn’t any need to send a task force in to raid the office just over a prototype handset that has been mostly leaked to the internet already.
So readers, what are your thought on this, is Nokia right in sending in the cops, or should that have found a more less public way of regaining their Nokia N8 prototype.
