Nokia has just confirmed what we has been rumored all along. Nokia will be making smartphones again!!! In an interview Nokia’s CEO Rajeev Suri is quoted as saying.
“We will look for suitable partners,” says Suri. “Microsoft makes mobile phones. We would simply design them and then make the brand name available to license.”
While this is a day to rejoice for Nokia fans we will have to wait for a while to see the first device since Nokia can’t use its brand on phones until after Q4, 2015. Plus while these devices will designed by Nokia but they will not be making them so there is no guarantee of Nokia quality.
While there isn’t much more details at the moment this is great news indeed. However for a Windows Mobile guy like me this raises a problem for me….Nokia devices running Android? Do I buy them or stick with my Windows Devices? Face it I am getting the Nokia like I have been since 1997.
