As a Nokia 2013 sold its mobile phone division to Microsoft, the Finnish company had to commit the same time to bring to the end of the third quarter 2016 no smartphones with its own brand name in the trade. Now we write already September 2015 and the electoral threshold is approaching so slowly to an end. In mid-July reaffirmed Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri to re-entering the mobile market under his own name and for that to seek appropriate hardware partners.
