After selling the handset division to Microsoft, many wondered this might be the end of Nokia. But it seems that, the company quietly spending their $7.2 billion all paid hiatus from the smartphone market to make a comeback.
This Nokia comeback will be a simple one. The Finnish company will only concentrate their energy to designing the devices and let other companies handle manufacturing and marketing for them. The same approach they took for N1 Android tablet which was released in China earlier this year.
Nokia Technologies seems very keen to return to the smartphone market and they are making their intention clear with every move.
Nokia agreed to buy rival network gear maker Alcatel-Lucent for $16.6 billion. Both company have approved of this and hoping to close the deal by the first half of 2016.
So brace your self for a Nokia comeback in 2016 as the company gets ready for “connecting people” on the smartphone market.
