Last year, in a bombshell announcement, Nokia decided to let go of its smartphone operations and focus on its mapping and other network related businesses. The phone part of Nokia is in the process of being acquired by Microsoft. That means sometime this year, Nokia phones as we have come to know and love, will cease to exist.
This puts all the phones the Finnish ex-giant is releasing now, kind of special. These are the last breed of smartphones coming out of Nokia’s factories, and with a Nokia logo on it. A logo that has meant so much to practically anyone who has ever held or used a mobile phone.
