Nokia Is Ready to Return to the Market

A while ago we reported the official news that Microsoft has decided to sell its feature phones at Foxconn and HMD Global Oy. Now we find that the move is part of a very ambitious plan to bring Nokia in the smartphone and tablet market globally.

HMD is a newly founded company in Finland and directed by ex-managers of Nokia. This will be the only company allowed to produce and distribute globally mobile Nokia-branded products. He later Nokia Technologies will become a member of the Board of Directors of HMD. Here is one of the most interesting passages of the press release issued by Nokia itself:

The feature phone branded Nokia remain one of the top choices in many markets around the world, and HMD will continue to promote and distribute them as an integral part of the portfolio along with a new range of smartphones and tablets. The new smartphone and tablet of HMD will be based on Android, thus uniting one of the most iconic brand in the mobile world with the mobile OS market leader.

So to recap: Nokia will return to the global telephony with Android smartphones and tablets, plus the usual array of feature phones; all devices will be manufactured exclusively by Foxconn. Precise timelines are difficult to assess: the agreement with Microsoft should finalised in the second half of 2016. It is possible that we’ll see something already on the occasion of the MWC 2017? We hope it is not too late.
