We Are Very Much Alive, Nokia! Go Nokia!!

Nokia, such a brand. I have gone through quite a few Nokia phones and there is one phone I still keep for posterity sake. Unopened elegantly packaged phone. I think they had a knack for packaging them, not as sexy as iPhone but industrious.
So when we heard that Microsoft is dropping 'Nokia' from it's phones, we were be sad. But a post form Nokia says it is not necessary, and that Nokia is much alive as it was 150 years ago. Go Nokia.

Some of today’s press reports related to rumours about Microsoft dropping the Nokia brand have declared the death of the Nokia brand.  But, to paraphrase Mark Twain, “reports of our death are an exaggeration.”  Yes, we have sold our mobile phone business to Microsoft.  But the Nokia of today is financially robust and has moved from weakness to strength. We have one of the world’s best telecom infrastructure businesses, a global leader in the mapping and location business, a stellar intellectual property portfolio and some of the finest innovation capabilities of any company anywhere.  Remember, Nokia started almost 150 years ago with just one paper mill. Over time we have repeatedly and successfully reinvented ourselves.  We may not be the same Nokia of several years ago, but we are here, we are strong, and our brand is very much still alive. Not to mention kicking!
We are glad and will look for for exciting news.
