In current competitive world, companies are trying their hardest to put up a good fight in the competition and be able to dominate the competitors. This is especially applied to almost all industries particularly with the technological companies like the mobile industry.
What could be the possible hindrance that a company could have in terms of the competition in the industry? Leakages are very dangerous in this sense especially if the prototype itself was stolen from the company. This has happened to Gizmodo or iPhone 4 before with Apple and now it is happening to Nokia.
Compared to the iPhone incident, Nokia catastrophe is located in a different place which is far from the former’s location. It is located in Russia and a journalist named Eldar Murtazin is involved.
Murtazin had allegedly taken the N8 prototype after the journalist has given negative review on the said product. Murtazin is an editor-in-chief in mobile-review.com which is based in Moscow Russia. And this is the reason why Nokia asked for the help of the Internal Affairs of Russian Administration.
According to Nokia, via its blog on Nokia Conversation, the company has requested the said journalist to surrender all the Nokia products that are in his possession. And when he turned down the said request, which was the time when Nokia asked for the Russian authorities for help in the said situation.
Some people have pondered of the possibility that Murtazin is being pursued due to the negative feedback that he had made. But according to the company, it is never the reason for the situation. A trade secret infringement has been made and Murtazin is the one responsible for it.
Though efforts have been made for the past months since the report of the incident, Murtazin reflected his views through his blog. In a blog post made by the journalist, he denied the said accusation.
