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...

There are corporations much bigger than Nokia that do not own one single square meter of real estate.

an android phone from nokia would sell so much that nokia would be king again! a good CEO should see this an use this OS to get back to the track.

instead of something clever they are doing what? lets see what the clever books are telling us to do when you are in trouble. "sell and lease back". WOW this must be the solution than!

selling the HQ is the begining of the end. it is one thing to sell your fleet and lease ist back. that is a clever thing to do. but your very own HQ - not realy!

Only Android can save Nokia! WP8 is the most boring os ever, with no real customization at all because only choose tiles and the colour and size of those tiles is not real customiztion at all! Every WP8 looks identical, from Samsung and HTC and Nokia...! WP8 is even more restricted than iOS, and Microsoft is an even worse "bully" than Apple, and Microsoft is very slow at developing their phone-os! I will never ever buy any WP8, but would be one of the first to buy an Android from Nokia! WP8 is so far away from the freedom of Symbian and MeeGo as it is possible, so no Symbian or MeeGo-fan wants to be locked up in the Microsoft WP8!

We should support to Nokia & RIM by buying their products. Cause making markets more & more diversity, so the price of cells would be cheaper - based on economic angles.

The nokia fanboys always says if android is laggy and buggy os in front and we dont want it. But after their beloved company is going down, now they are needed this laggiest os too.
The fact can not lie if that laggiest os is the king of phones right now.

poor Nokia, they thought by saying they would only produce WP they can replace their Symbian, while other companies creates many types of products. One of the best trolling by MS is when Nokia launched Lumia and then bam, that version of WP OS is dead already.... *poor Nokia*

Nokia had a great platform but could not develop fast enough and on the other hand Google gives complete opportunity to customize. Google cashed the word FREE and OPEN SOURCE.

Well i am waiting for the FIREFOX OS, now.

why nokia would never make a deal with android? because linux is a thief. they got their ideas and resources from symbian of nokia. they had developed their os from oracle's java. we all know that java and nokia are partner and dominated the market before the rise of android.

the reason why oracle sues android platform


linux founder is a FINNISH thief ;)

A part of me is very happy right now. I remember the times when Nokia ruled the world with 0,3mp cameras and b/w displays. The prices were so low that nobody could look elsewere. Now it's their turn to suffer. Go Samsung, go!
