Apple hires Nokia's phone camera lead Nokia's Lumia series photography lead, Ari Partinen, today announced on Twitter that he has quit his job at Microsoft and will be joining Apple's team in Cupertino, California in June.
Partinen is one of the figures behind Nokia's revolutionary oversampling technology, first introduced in Nokia Pureview 808 and later brought to Windows Phone-era in form of Nokia Lumia 1020.

Superb camera and imaging features have been among few strong marketing claims in Microsoft's attempt to grow its marketshare as it lags far behind Android and iOS, and so losing Partinen is going to be a big blow to Microsoft's camera division -- and a huge win for Apple.

Here's Partinen's original tweet:
