Nokia branded mobile phones are back on sale. The range is limited to basic models, but that should change when Android-powered smartphones and tablets are added soon.

The phone manufacturer started to struggle when the iPhone was launched in 2007. Since then, the phone business has been sold to and dumped by Microsoft after they released that the Nokia Windows combination failed to claim any significant market slice.

Now Nokia has been licensed to HMD Global, a Finnish company who believe they can make the Nokia brand big again. They have taken over from Microsoft the feature-phone business which is still a sizeable marketplace, particularly in the developing world. They are also aiming to bring out a range of Android smartphones in the first half of 2017.

How will they fare entering a fiercely competitive Android market, where all sorts of companies are failing to make any profit? It will certainly be interesting to see what they can do.Image result for nokia logo
