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...

China makes more advanced feature phones art a much lower price, and their quality has improved to a new level, im actually impressed with the phone of a friend, at QWERTY camera phone with bluetooth and internet and MMS, with mediaplayer and card slot. For $32. No 3G of course.

Nokia is getting 170 million
euros from selling those buildings. In Europe, companies do this a lot,
because the rent of those HQ
buildings can be reduced from
earnings every month before
paying tax. In other words, this is a
legal way to pay less tax

I think Nokia should have turned its feature phone line up into droid devices and keep its flagships as W8 phones. It would help bring in revenue way better than offering the dead symbian

That's the result of not aquiring other ideas such as using google's android,and merely focusing on wp.

Nokia ...you killed yourself by your hand

Why you killed symbian ...meego...says no to android

and now what???

Look at samung they make WP8 devices like...android...java...even bada

You can shift to android and still using meego and android and symbian even for mid or low end cells ..but now you will kill your self slowly.

poor Nokia :)
