Why Nokia making new Android phones isn’t as exciting as it sounds

Here s what we know... A new company, HMD Global Oy, has bought the rights to use the Nokia name.

It s partnered with Foxconn – a huge Chinese company that manufactures the iPhone, among many other things – to develop, market and sell new Nokia products.

We see this all the time – it s why you see cheap-as-chips Pioneer TVs that bear no resemblance to the brand s previous glories.

Until proven otherwise, this deal has all the qualities of an opportunistic attempt to make some money out of a brand that has a history.

The chances we ll see phones with classic Nokia features, such as PureView cameras, are slim to none.

I ll be delighted if I m proved wrong, but I m not getting my hopes up.
