Owning a mobile phone was not as popular in the 2000s as owning a Nokia 3310 was back then. If you are a tech nostalgic, you surely must remember the most popular cell phone ever manufactured by Finnish based company Nokia. Do memories come back to you while reading these lines? That`s right, that cell phone was awesome. It had everything: it was available in a large variety of colors, it featured Snake II, which later became one of the most popular games of the decade and it also allowed you to send text messages which overcame the limit of 160 words. And above all it was indestructible. Well, if that is a case, there are some good news that have begun to be discussed all over the internet, as most voices in the tech communities claim that the Finnish company Nokia will come back to mobile phone market, after a period in which the company has known a decline and eventually sold its hand set to Microsoft.
Nokia will come back to mobile phone market in 2016, according to the Re/code tech website. Still, it has been predicted by various tech analysts that the Finnish company will not resurrect in the same form it looked like in the golden days of the 90s or early 2000s. A report stated that Nokia`s intentions are not to manufacture the mobile phones, but to find a partner company which will agree to manufacture and function as a distributor for mobile phones branded as Nokia and designed by the Finnish tech company.
Such news might surprise most of the tech enthusiasts, given the fact that Nokia has sold its hand set to the American tech giant Microsoft, which purchased a part of Nokia`s business at a price of 7 billion dollars. The deal between the two giants was finalized in the autumn of 2014. After that, Nokia and Microsoft wandered the mysterious lands of the mobile phone market together, with Nokia building the Lumia series and Microsoft providing the operating system and software of the smartphones, integrating them into the Windows Phone platform.
The report on the matter has also added that the deal between Microsoft and Nokia mentioned that the latter was allowed to sell mobile phones only after 2015.
This is the second impressive piece of information about Nokia`s future plans to come in a short period of time. Only a week ago, Nokia announced that they plan to spend 16.6 billion dollars in order to purchase the French-based telecom Alcatel-Lucent.
