Nokia sells its HQ in Finland, to stay there on a lease - read the full textNokia's financials aren't what you'd call great lately, and as a result the company is selling its headquarters building in Espoo, Finland for 170 million. The deal is expected to be finalized by the end of the year, but the company has no plans to move out afterwards. Instead it will lease...

Lol. I have to laugh at some of these comments. People a building means nothing in this day and age, its bricks . Nokia is moving on.. Nokia has made s beautiful mobile. Enjoy it. . Long live Nokia. My lumia 920 is best phone I've had. . I been using mobile from about 1996. I've seen and had a lot. Nokia have been here from the start and led the way. If it wasn't for them in pretty sure you wouldn't have htc. Samsung or apple in the form you get them today. . . I got my new covers today from ebay. Now i have every colour of lumia you can get except gray. Its an awsome mobile.

> In reply to [deleted post]I'm nokia fan and own lumia 800 for now,thats for your kindy info.

...this was real, when steven elop go to google to negotiate about android they didn't allow him to make it's own android's phone with exclusive apps...so Nokia in this time 2009,2010 prefered to shift to microsoft because Google in this time was in better setuation than Nokia...it didn't need Nokia and didn't welcome how Nokia have thier rules to make android phones.

Now..

putting all the diamonds in microsoft's basket only is such very stupid theory ...very stupid

Samsung and HTC now release thier own wp 8 devices(sure nokia is the best) but they has android as main Os and they powered thier mid-low arange devices by android

Nokia killed Meego???? Why???
Nokia Killed Symbian??? Why??

How come I have such great Os's and killed them ... to argument about that I'll shift totally to WP 8 os

Samsung, Lg, Htc, Sony...shift totally to android...but look at samsung, Htc, LG even ZTE...they still release Wp os unlike Nokia which gives you between Lumias and Asha

Nokia will never go to android in this time???why??

This is not such smart from the most Patent inventions

Company in The mobile phones world till now.

I hope Nokia become the first again.

Rest in peace Nokia,
It could happen to any big company,once they fail to catch up with the market, falls behind too far, That's the reason of Nokia 's failure,
Lumia 900 another marketing failure!
Microsoft kills them!
they should take a good look on Samsung!
sad ending

Getting bankrupted part-1 a.k.a desperate attempts to survive.

In their peak time they delivered bad phones and great ideas which were never ever brought to life. I remember when every other month they will bring futuristic phones on their website though never ever came to existence. Its time "No Nokia."

Ermmmm. What about Sailfish?? As my little brain understand, this is the love-child of Meego and Wp? Plus a dash of Android on the side. LoL. .And Wp is still a Young(but athletic) Os. . As for me, i'll wait for next year. I don't want to spend a fortune for a phone that would break and shatter like a glass when it hit the ground. No to Nokia+Android, Pro Nokia+FISHY. .just trolling around. . :D

they had something great in meego then elop came and trashed it for a OS nobody cared about and now nokia is becoming something people no longer care about......nokia should have stayed on the path of being unique

I think Nokia should exit Mobile industry and become a toy manufacturer.
Lumia toys,N Series Toys.

Nokia once made great phones, but now it's facing the Ericsson doom. They don't make decent phones any more. As a matter of fact they haven't made any best seller sinse the N95 8GB & N82 and those were around quite a long time ago. The last decent units they made were N8 & E7, but they didn't think of combining the N8 camera with the E7 design. Another mistake was to ditch Symbian for Windows Mobile instead of Android. Third mistake was to reserve their OVI store(Nokia store now) only for Nokia phones, so other brands that made Symbian phones had to pull back from their operating system.
So long Nokia.....
