Nokia to enter Android market

Nokia is back, but this time they're joining the Android side. Nokia sold their phone side of the business to Microsoft a while back (which became the Lumia phone lineup from Microsoft) and now they're giving it another go, but this time using Android. Nothing is scheduled but they are making the announcement that Nokia is back in the phone business. You can read the full press release here.

We are proud to announce that the Nokia brand will be returning to the worldwide mobile phone and tablet market.

Every day our fans continue to ask for Nokia smartphones. In fact, in a recent survey, we found that Nokia smartphones are amongst the top five considered brands for purchase by smartphone buyers – and they aren’t even available yet.

So, under a new agreement, Nokia Technologies has granted HMD, a new company led by some of the world’s top mobile specialists, an exclusive global license to create a full range of Nokia-branded smartphones, tablets, and feature phones for the next decade.
