Photograph: Antti Aimo-Koivisto/AFP/Getty ImagesSoon, you ll be able to buy a Nokia again, 18 months after Microsoft quietly killed the name, seemingly for good.Meanwhile, the manufacturing, distribution and sales arms of Nokia have been bought by iPhone manufacturer Foxconn, which has also agreed to build the new Nokia phone for HMD.The chief executive of HMD global, Arto Nummela, said: We will be completely focused on creating a unified range of Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets, which we know will resonate with consumers.After the dust settles, HMD will be running the Nokia brand with Foxconn as an exclusive licensee.This agreement will give HMD full operational control of sales, marketing and distribution of Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets, with exclusive access to the pre-eminent global sales and distribution network to be acquired from Microsoft by FIH, access to FIH s world-leading device manufacturing, supply chain and engineering capabilities, and to its growing suite of proprietary mobile technologies and components.In September 2013, Microsoft announced it would buy Nokia s mobile phone business for €5.4bn £4.2bn .
Microsoft has announced an agreement to sell its feature-phone business to FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of Taiwan-based electronics giant Foxconn, and another entity called HMD Global, Oy for around $350 million.HMD Global was founded out of Finland in 2015, and initially it looked like it was a business vehicle of sorts set up to help facilitate the Microsoft transaction — Finland, if you remember, is home to Nokia, the former mobile phone giant that sold its core hardware assets to Microsoft two years back.Today marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the Nokia brand in an industry where Nokia remains a truly iconic name, said Ramzi Haidamus, president of Nokia Technologies.So while Nokia still harbors ambitions to be a big mobile brand, it will have to rely on others much more than it once did — you may remember the company launched an Android-powered tablet in China back in 2014, well, that was under a similar arrangement as to what it will be doing now moving forward.This is where HMD Global comes into play — it s a new private company seemingly founded under Nokia s volition to build a new wave of mobile devices, replete with the Nokia brand.The venture is actually being run by CEO Arto Nummela, formerly of Nokia and the head of Microsoft s Mobile Devices business in Greater Asia, Middle East, and Africa, as well as Microsoft s soon-to-be-sold feature phones business.Nummela will be aided by President Florian Seiche, who currently serves as senior vice president for Europe sales and marketing at Microsoft Mobile.We don t yet know what these devices will look like, but we do know that HMD plans to invest around $500 million over the next three years to support the marketing of Nokia-branded devices, which HMD says will be funded via its investors and profits from the acquired feature phone business.
Nokia sold off their mobile and devices division back in 2014, in hopes that the brand would live on under Microsoft's care.Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn't exactly been putting a strong focus on their Windows phones, which means that the Nokia brand has been in a slump for quite some time.Today, it was announced that Microsoft would be selling the rights to the Nokia brand to HMD global for the next ten years.HMD is brand new Finnish company that appears to have been founded with the purpose of creating Nokia-branded phones and tablets.Additionally, Microsoft announced that they were selling the remainder of their feature phone business assets to FIH Mobile Limited a subsidiary of Foxconn .HMD and FIH will be working together to create Nokia-branded Android phones and tablets over the next ten years.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is also licensing the Nokia name for handsets back to Nokia, which has set up a new company that will make feature phones, Android-based smartphones, and tablets.Now, Microsoft claims it is not giving up the ghost entirely, even though it is enabling yet another competitor in the smartphone business.There was no bold vision or explanation of where Microsoft plans to go next in terms of mobile platforms and devices.Plus, Alcatel has actually been acquired by Nokia .What s more, the deal is not likely to reassure app developers, handset manufacturers, or consumers that Microsoft is in the smartphone game for the long haul.At this point, walking away is probably the best thing Microsoft can do.During its second quarter earnings report in January, Microsoft reported that it had sold 4.5 million Lumia devices, down from 10.5 million for the same period a year earlier.In the five years since Microsoft first gave us the Windows phone, the news has been bleak:And in the Kantar market share report for the three months ending in February, Windows Mobile was bleeding market share just about everywhere: down from 4.8 percent in 2015 to 2.6 percent in 2016 in the U.S; down from 9.1 percent in 2015 to 5.8 percent in 2016 in Australia; and down 10.1 percent to 5.9 percent in Europe s five biggest countries.Meanwhile, Windows Mobile was stuck at .9 percent in China, practically irrelevant.Microsoft has been focusing on services and applications that run across mobile platforms lately.This is probably its best hope for maintaining a foothold in the mobile platform game going forward.No doubt, it s a bitter moment for a company that once had such a lock on personal computing — thanks to its Windows desktop monopoly.But the mobile wars have long since become Apple s iOS versus Google s Android.Microsoft can only really move on by admitting that hard truth to itself.
Nokia Technologies Group Vice President Ramzi Haidamus. Nokia's iconic brand is worth reviving phones. We do not invest in this company at all, but it will perform all marketing, product development and manufacturing independently. We pay very much attention to the fact that the brand is handled well. Työsketelemme HMD with a very close co-operation to ensure that every product that leaves our name on the market, our product promise is responsible for good design and good quality. Upcoming Nokia logo Phones and tablets are Android devices.
Nokia is back in the mobile phone business, after a fashion.It has granted HMD Global an exclusive, 10-year license to the famous brand, allowing the Finnish startup to sell Nokia mobile phones and tablets.Meanwhile Microsoft, which bought Nokia's mobile phone activities in 2013, is finally getting out of the feature-phone business, selling its remaining interests in the Nokia brand and its Vietnamese phone factory to HMD and to FIH, a subsidiary of contract manufacturing giant Foxconn, for around US$350 million.Fans of the Lumia brand should still see software updates, but they may not see any new hardware: Microsoft merely said it would "support Lumia phones such as the Lumia 650, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL," without talking of developing new models.However, its roundabout return to the mobile phone market was clearly telegraphed.As early as 2014 it dipped a toe back into the mobile market with the release of the Nokia-branded N1 tablet, manufactured under license by Foxconn, the manufacturing partner of HMD.
Microsoft has announced that it s selling its feature phone division to Foxconn for the princely sum of $350 million.While Microsoft claims it will continue to work on Windows 10 Mobile and the Lumia smartphone brand, it will hand over all of the assets relating to its Nokia-branded feature phones, including brands, software and services, care network and other assets, customer contracts, and critical supply agreements.It s expected the deal will be completed in the second half of 2016.Microsoft purchased Nokia s phone division three years ago for $7.1 billion.Its foray into phone hardware hasn t been a huge success so far, but maybe jettisoning the feature phone wing will allow it double down on the smartphones it clings to.Did someone mention Surface Phone?
Just a few years ago, Finland s once-mighty Nokia couldn t wait to unload its dying smartphone business to Microsoft.Microsoft needed a Hail Mary pass to jumpstart its Windows Mobile platform.It was a tough decision for Nokia, a company that had been king of mobile handsets a decade earlier.And so, at first glance, it would seem absurd that suddenly Nokia wants to build a smartphone business from scratch.But times have changed.And so has Nokia.Having shed handsets, Nokia pivoted to focus on telecom and communications equipment.It doubled down by acquiring France s Alcatel, which will give it a broader focus on connected objects and networks.The ability to make cheap, $50 Android phones has given rise to all sorts of regional smartphone players who can offer handsets with decent quality and not too much turnaround time.Many of these phones are aimed at people who are graduating from feature phones to their first smartphone.And its costly manufacturing operations will now be in the hands of a Foxconn subsidiary, as part of the Microsoft deal.Nobody should expect Nokia to become No.

Nokia is expected to transfer Bharti Airtel's customer Jaideep Minochanille, which is currently responsible for sales support in India. Nokia's shares closed yesterday 1.2 percent decline to EUR 4.53 OMXH index remained almost at the level of the previous day. The share has decreased since the May 10 announced the first-quarter report, nearly ten per cent. Barclays declined to € 6.75 today Nokia's target price to EUR 8.75 previously. The recommendation will remain at the level of "more".
The company, which has refashioned itself into a maker of wireless and Internet network equipment, won t make or sell cellphones and tablets directly.Rather, Nokia said Wednesday that it has entered a series of licensing pacts with Finnish and Asian partners.Nokia said it has granted patent and design rights to a newly created company based in Finland, HMD Global Oy, which will be in charge of global marketing through a 10-year exclusive agreement.As part of a separate but related transaction, Microsoft said it has agreed to sell Nokia s former entry-level phone business, which it has owned since 2014, to HMD and Foxconn for $350 million.Two years ago, the U.S. company spent €5.4 billion $6.1 billion to acquire Nokia s wireless device assets.Nokia said revenue from the entry-level phone operations would help HMD finance a $500 million investment in a global marketing campaign over the next three years.
After Microsoft bought the handset business from the Finnish firm in 2014 the legendary Nokia name disappeared from our phones, but it's coming back.A new company, HMD, has been specifically founded as a subsidiary of Foxconn to put the Nokia name back onto phones and tablets.HMD has signed a licensing agreement with the Nokia Corporation - the company does still exist - for the exclusive use of the Nokia brand on mobiles and tablets for the next 10 years.Feature focusIt's not just smartphones though.HMD has agreed with Microsoft "to use the 'Nokia' trademark on feature phones until 2024, and design rights relating to Microsoft's Feature Phone Business."They may not be household names, but Nummela has previously held senior positions at Nokia, and is currently the head of Microsoft's Mobile Devices business EMEA and Microsoft's global Feature Phones business.
Microsoft Corp. agreed to sell its feature phone business to FIH Mobile Ltd. and HMD Global for $350 million, exiting a business that once dominated the mobile market under the Nokia name before Apple Inc. s iPhone.FIH, part of Foxconn Technology Group, will also acquire a manufacturing facility in Hanoi, Microsoft said in a statement Wednesday.About 4,500 employees will transfer to the new owners with HMD also signing an agreement to make new devices under the Nokia brand.Microsoft moved into phone production almost two years ago when it bought the handset division of Nokia in a $9.5 billion deal in a bid to make the company relevant in consumer computing beyond PCs.The company later wrote down most of that purchase.
