Now that Nokia is out of
the smartphone game, many of its key staff are undoubtedly considering their options. Senior Lumia engineer Ari Partinen, who Nokia calls
"(our) own camera expert" has just made his choice
, and it's not Microsoft. He tweeted that he'll be "starting a new chapter in Cupertino," then confirmed
that his new boss is indeed Tim Cook. Though Apple's iPhone 5s camera is already considered
good, it could be looking for more, judging by this hire. Of course, Nokia has plenty of folks who worked on the PureView line, and Partinen is just one part of that team. But whatever you think of its Windows Phone handsets, cameras like the 41-megapixel monster in the Lumia 1020
are universally considered some of the best in the industry.
