Nokia Plans Smartphone Return

Rajeev Suri, CEO of Nokia, has said that he wants to resurrect the brand’s name on smartphones.

Speaking to Germany’s Manager Magazin, Sureev said that Microsoft will lose control of the brand name in 2016. Nokia is already looking for suitable partners to sign a licensing deal.

Nokia is banned from the smartphone market until mid-2016 – one of the terms of the take-over by Microsoft (Display Monitor Vol 20 No 34).
