Anssi Vanjoki, the new man in the hot seat at Nokia, has vowed the company will reclaim its position as the smartphone leader.

Vanjoki, who took over as head of mobile solutions on Friday, says his job is “to ensure Nokia stays as the market and intellectual leader in creating the digital world.”

“We have all the assets — including R&D and product development – at our disposal under one roof – to produce killer smartphones and market-changing mobile computers,” he wrote on the company blog.

“I am committed, perhaps even obsessed, with getting Nokia back to being number one in high-end devices,” said Vanjoki, a 19-year Nokia veteran. But there was “no denying, that as a challenger now, we have a fight on our hands.”

Vanjoki said the company was committed to the Symbian and Meego operating systems and had “no plans” to use Android or any other platforms.

He said Symbian was Nokia’s platform of choice for smartphones, but admitted some of the heavy criticism directed at it recently had been “fair.”
