Ok so an email from Nokia press arrived this morning with them discussing Alcatel Lucent,there is many rumours floating around and in this game there will continue to do so i think many people want to see Nokia standing firm once again in the handset business,also of late is speculation of the rumored sale of HERE maps so put 2 & 2 together here and sparks begin to fly.After the success of the N1 tablet which is hard to get these days its a sign,a good sign and one which its safe to say Nokia fans will want to see their NOKIA LOGO back on top of a handset,not a cheap handset from MS but a decent one from god knows who at this point.We all know this cant happen for some time but there is nothing wrong with planning ahead,the day cant come sooner for the majority..but is it for a return to the handset market? For now that’s a no. Down the road who knows.
Updated. Nokia have now purchased Alcatel-Lucent, read more HERE
