We’re No. 4 – suck it, Finland!

e65.jpgNokia is apparently under the impression that more people will buy cell phones if they are told to do so by a really boring British professor, so it commissioned a global ranking from Leonard Waverman of the London Business School.

Taking the top spot in the please-don’t-make-it-annual Connectivity Scorecard was (you guessed it) the United States, followed by Sweden, Japan and Canada.

“What this study demonstrates is that not even the world’s richest countries can afford to become complacent about their current telecom and computing profile,” Prof. Waverman was quoted as saying. (But can they afford Nokia’s E65?)

Ironically, Finland, where Nokia is headquarted, only came in at No. 5, after us. Apparently they can make good cell phones there. They just can’t make good enough use of them.
