New VP of webOS and Carrier Markets, Jukka Tiitu, hired for Europe, Middle East and Africa

by Tim Stiffler-Dean Sun, 08 May 2011 1:29 am EDT

With a rich background managing a number of markets and sales channels of the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) at Nokia, Jukka Tiitu has been hired by Hewlett-Packard to do the same for webOS and Carrier Markets in the widely untapped region. What does this mean for you? A lot, actually, even if you don't live in those regions.

As more markets are added into the mix, more countries and regions, customers and developers, apps and mindshare will all be thrown in as well. We can only hope that the act of HP hiring Jukka Tiitu means that the scale they've been going on about for the last year will finally be put into larger play, and our friends in previously unsupported countries will finally get some of that goodness that is webOS.

No doubt, the developers of Carbon webOS and others will be excited to hear what Tiitu will be doing in the coming months. Stay tuned, there could be some more good news coming our way from this addition to the leadership at HP.
