Actually am an fan of Nokia. But I hate Windows. So thanks Nokia Bye bye Samsung
Great start...N1 tablet and now C1
Even though it is produced by Foxcon, it is still designed, developed by Nokia. So we can trust and buy..
Nokia always known for their great hardware...

"Under the terms of the agreement, Microsoft will pay EUR 1.65 billion to license Nokia's patents "
"Nokia will retain its patent portfolio and will grant Microsoft a 10-year non-exclusive license to its patents at the time of the closing. Microsoft will grant Nokia reciprocal rights to use Microsoft patents in its HERE services. In addition, Nokia will grant Microsoft an option to extend this mutual patent agreement in perpetuity."
"As part of the transaction, Nokia will grant Microsoft a 10 year non-exclusive license to its patents as of the time of the closing, and Microsoft will grant Nokia reciprocal rights related to HERE services. In addition, Nokia will grant Microsoft an option to extend this mutual patent agreement to perpetuity. Of the total purchase price of EUR 5.44 billion, EUR 3.79 billion relates to the purchase of substantially all of the Devices & Services business, and EUR 1.65 billion relates to the mutual patent agreement and future option."
"As part of the transaction, Nokia is assigning to Microsoft its long-term patent licensing agreement with Qualcomm, as well as other licensing agreements."
I agree with Raja.
Nokia should not adopt Andriod OS , The reason why people are/were still using Nokia cause of its Own OS or Windows OS. If it comes to Android then one can say Bye bye to Nokia unless they start to copy HTC strategy i.e. to launch the same phone on two different platforms.
Good to see Nokia showing Microsoft the finger :) Nokia now doing the same as Apple, in house design but built by foxcon since Microsoft owns all old manufacturing plants.

Thanks No... moreAs per your comment, it is clearly understood that you dont know anything about SmartPhones. I mean you are a kind of KID. Better start using Nokia 1100, 1600 type multimedia sets or Window phones and then you can think abt Android or iOS.
FYI: You can HARDLY imagine abt the features in Android 5.0 and ofcrs that is out of imagination of Windows but even those are not yet implemented in iOS.
Actually am an fan of Nokia. But I hate android OS. So I use Lumia devices from now. Thanks Nokia for introducing wp8 OS to me. But I u disappointed me by choosing Android. Bye bye Nokia
Yeah, thats why Foxconn or whatever the company is called is releasing it instead of NOKIA
pegasso, 22 Dec 2014i thought nokia is not allowed to make phones anymore?no, they can't use nokia name till 2016
I think i like it, Intel soc is interesting, but of course 720p will be a dealbreaker. Also, Nokia of the past was not good in squeezing in big batteries, even giant bricks like Lumia 920 had fairly small batteries for some reason, hope it will not be a problem again.

So, technically, MS paid a lot of cash to purchase Nokia and now they are getting absolutely nothing out of it because what remained of Nokia is making phones with a better platform and it's gonna steal all of MS's sales? Sound business strategy Microsoft, really impressive.
