Microsoft acquisition of Nokia's mobile phone business itself is not to be optimistic about the outside world and last year's mobile phone business asset write offs, the equivalent of Microsoft's own admitted in the field of mobile phone failure. Now Microsoft by the Satya Nadella administration, after a number of organizational structure and business restructuring, and then cut off the functional machine business is not surprising.

single product can focus more on the market itself, and Foxconn mobile, NOKIA and three party operators will close cooperation;
equipped with Android operating system for mobile phone so much importance, one of the flagship products comes out but, it must have excellent hardware and software optimization design; Style= font-size: "14px p>
in the past, some of the classic elements of NOKIA's mobile phone products can be once again to reproduce, wake up people for NOKIA brand memory.
with the two different media," Wired will sell Microsoft functional machine business, NOKIA mobile phone market and return last year NOKIA launched the Nokia N1 tablet link. In Wired seems, Microsoft's sale of functional machine business seems to have given the opportunity to a rebirth of the NOKIA brand, and before the launch of the N1 Nokia has also been tempted to respond to the global market for NOKIA brand.
the Nokia brand has left the public eye for a period of time, Foxconn mobile and HMD global oy perhaps can let people re think about it. In order to consolidate the telecommunication infrastructure business, NOKIA last year to $16 billion 600 million acquisition of Alcatel lucent. But if the Nokia brand cannot successfully returned to the mobile phone market, which for Nokia itself does not seem to much loss and the related to the input can be much less than the acquisition of Alcatel lucent.
