Nokia just sold its handsets market to Microsoft and now it comes up with something new for itself. The company plans to launch a 7.9 inch tablet next year in the biggest market of world, China.The Finnish company always made its mark since its launch in 19th century as a paper manufacturer.
The Apple manufacturer, Taiwan-based Foxconn, will be manufacturing these tablets for Nokia. This tablet runs on Android rather the Windows.
Sebastian Nystrom says that it is a new beginning for Nokia and it always manages to make a mark on the market.It can even be described as the phoenix.“It’s pointing in the right direction, but there are some real challenges,” said Neil Mawston.
Nokia is named after its home town where paper manufacturing was its primary business, later it starting making money in other businesses as rubber boots and cable maker.just after that it started up with electronics company and it became synonymous to wireless technology and reached a peak of 40% market share in worldwide mobile sales in 2008.
Nystrom says “We are pleased to bring the Nokia brand back into consumers’ hands” and announced the launch of device at Helsinki, Slush which is one of the largest start-up and investment summit expecting almost 10,000 people within two days. There were signs that Nokia is interested in producing Android smartphones, but this wouldn’t happen until 2016 because of their deal with Microsoft.
