Recently, Nokia Head Quarter (HQ) in Espoo, Finland announced officially on its blog on December 4, 2012 that Nokia had agreed to sell and lease back its head office building on a long-term lease to Finland-based Exilion. They expect to complete the sale by the end of 2012. The selling price is EUR 170 million.
"We had a comprehensive sales process with both Finnish and foreign investors and we are very pleased with this outcome. As we have said before, owning real estate is not part of Nokia's core business and when good opportunities arise we are willing to exit these types of non-core assets. We are naturally continuing to operate in our head office building on a long-term basis," said Timo Ihamuotila, CFO, Nokia.
Note: Nokia has operated in the building since 1997. The 48,000 m2 building, designed by architect Pekka Helin, is located in Keilaniemi, Espoo, Finland.
Could this issue make Nokia’s employees in the world feel uncomfortable, especially in Cambodia?
Uh… for me, I think at least they will get wondered why the HQ do that. Anyway, now Nokia has been starting up from changing its original concept on sticking with Symbain OS to use Windows Phone OS; especially they, Nokia, use the first Windows Phone 8 for Nokia Lumia 920, 820 and 620. And there are other 3 companies that also initially launched this OS such as Samsung, Huawei, and HTC. All devices are based on System on Chips from Qualcomm. Unfortunately current Windows Phone 7.x devices cannot run or update to Windows Phone 8 and new applications compiled specifically for Windows Phone 8 are not made available for Windows Phone 7.x devices.
Talking about Windows 8, Microsoft (MDP) Cambodia officially launched it on November 15, 2012 at CJCC as mentioned more detail in my previous post, Microsoft Technology Innovation Day in Cambodia 2012.

What model of which brand do you select Windows Phone 8 to use? As for Nokia Lumia 920, will it be competed well with other brands like Samsung Galaxy SIII and iPhone 5 in Cambodian market?
