Nokia phones are manufactured by Nokia Corporation. A Finnish multinational communications and information technology company, founded in 1865 with its headquarter in Espoo, Uusimaa, in the greater Helsinki metropolitan area.
A major contributor to the mobile telephony industry, having assisted in development of the GSM and LTE standards, and was, for a period, the largest vendor of mobile phones in the world.
Nokia’s dominance also extended into the smartphone industry through its Symbian platform, but was eventually overshadowed by competitors.
Nokia eventually entered into a pact with Microsoft in 2011 to exclusively use its Windows Phone platform on future smartphones. Its mobile phone business was eventually bought by Microsoft in an overall deal totaling $7.17 billion.
Stephen Elop, Nokia’s former CEO, and several other executives joined the new Microsoft Mobile subsidiary of Microsoft as part of the deal, which was completed on 25 April 2014.
