I Love Nokia phones, they were great to talk on, Now I have smartphones that can do everything but make a good phone call.

$223 million? Sounds like the yearly dollar amount of market share Nokia has left....

Oh how the mighty fall! Everything including the kitchen sink it seems. I agree with HS_SemiPro. VoLTE (or not as the case may be) is the crowning example of just how far the industry has gone away from the telephone.

My first cellphone was the popular Nokia candy bar model. Its tiny screen now feels like a throwback more ancient than vinyl records. I graduated to a Blackberry, then an iPhone. Lumia? I think not.

Big corporations sell their building in bad times always arguing that they are not in the real-estate business...didn't they realize that when they were buying these buildings in the first place?...and why sell the only profitable part of your business? ;-)...Kris

This is one temp way to make the quarterly balance sheet look good. Apart from that I don't see any long term advantage. Putting ones house on the block shows how bad things have gotten for them. Nokia withering away at the seams and probably a pvt equity takeover candidate in the next two years.

I bet Nokia is counting down! .... maybe its time to buy a Nokia phone and keep it for a good memory of this revolutionary company once in our history! Show to our grand grand son that this brand was once the best phone (if phone is still the name for communication by then).
