Nokia Nabs RIM Exec

12:55 PM -- Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK), which is in the midst of staging a "fightback" for smartphone supremacy, has poached Charmaine Eggberry from BlackBerry .

Eggberry's new job at Nokia is senior vice president for marketing with responsibility for "Go-To-Market Operations" (GTMO), according to a Nokia spokesman. (See No Androids From Nokia.)

Before jumping ship to Nokia, Eggberry was VP and managing director for EMEA at RIM and was responsible for the BlackBerry maker's business in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

So, the question is: How much muscle does Eggberry add to Nokia's high-end fight? (See Nokia Feels High-End Heat in Q2 Warning , Does iPhone 4 Dash Nokia's High-End Hopes? , and Nokia's Not Giving Up on Symbian.)
