HELSINKI, Oct.6 (Xinhua) -- Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has joined the global wave of tributes to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs who died on Wednesday, Finnish media reported Thursday.
"Steve's passion for simplicity and elegance leaves a legacy that will endure. Thoughts of all at Nokia are with his friends and family," Elop said in a Twitter message on Thursday morning.
In an interview with Finnish Broadcasting Company on Thursday, analyst Hannu Rauhala of Finnish Pohjola Bank said that Jobs' innovations were seminal for the mobile phone industry, and also guided Nokia to adopt touch screen technology.
Jobs' passing is unlikely to affect Nokia's market share--at least in the short-term, said Rauhala.
