Nokia mobile phones are back on sale on company’s website
BBC – Nokia-branded mobile phones are on sale, once again, and being marketed on the Finnish company’s website.
For now, the range is limited to some pretty basic models, but that should change when Android-powered smartphones and tablets are added soon.
It’s thanks to a deal with a small team based at a business park on the fringes of Helsinki, who are engaged in what will seem to many a foolhardy mission.
They call themselves HMD Global – and they believe they can make Nokia a big name in mobile phones once again.
I met Arto Nummela, Pekka Rantala and Florian Seiche in a cafe on what is still the Nokia campus.
That very day Arto and Pekka had stopped working for the Nokia Windows mobile phone business owned by Microsoft – because they had acquired both it and the Nokia brand to start their new business.
