Will Nokia’s brand image provide enough of an edge? Let’s talk

Nokia smartphones are poised for a comeback after former managers at the Finnish company licensed the handset brand from Microsoft and struck up partnerships with Google and phone manufacturer Foxconn. Nokia was once the world’s dominant cellphone maker but missed the shift to smartphones and then chose Microsoft’s unpopular Windows operating system for its “Lumia” range.

Nokia is officially back in the phone business with a new ‘Phones’ section on its website

Nokia’s return to smartphones is probably one of the most awaited moments that will happen in 2017, and it could under the right circumstances be bigger than the Galaxy S8 or the 10th anniversary iPhone.

The first Nokia-branded Android smartphones will be available in the first half of 2017, HMD said in a press statement on Thursday. Continue reading
