Head of the Lumia Photography division leaving Nokia for Apple

Some Nokia employees don’t like their new boss and would rather pursue their careers in another companies.

Ari Partinen, which used to head the Lumia Photography division, is one of those “affected,” and he decided to join Apple rather than Microsoft.

The guy who played a key role in the development of the industry-leading camera-phones such as the Nokia N8 and Nokia 808 PureView turned to Twitter to share the good news… That’s “good” if you prefer Apple over Microsoft.

Starting from next month, he’ll be working for the Cupertino giant where he’ll contribute his vast experience to improve iPhone’s camera.

Chances are the iPhone 6 development is pretty much a done deal, and we’ll have to wait for next year’s iPhone to see the first fruits of Partinen’s expertise. Nevertheless, we are glad to see that Cook & Co. keep pursuing the best talent to make the iPhone one of the best camera-phones around…
