Nokia CEO talks about company’s plans to return to mobile market

In a disclosure which underscores an imminent mobile comeback for Finnish firm Nokia, the company's CEO Rajeev Suri has hinted that the company is officially looking to return to the mobile arena. Nokia had sold its mobile handset business to Microsoft last year; and is now planning to return to the phone business in 2016.

Reporting Nokia's apparent efforts in making a comeback to the mobile market, German website Manager Magazin has revealed that it has been informed by Suri that Nokia plans to look for "suitable partners" to help it make a return to the mobile space.

Suri's statement to the German website marks an official substantial of several recent rumors which have, for the past few months, hinting at Nokia's mobile ambitions. Among the rumors about Nokia's possible mobile comeback, a Re/code report released in April had revealed that Nokia is mulling a return to mobile business, but it does not want to re-establish the mobile unit which it has sold to Microsoft.

Going by a translated version of the Manager Magazin report, Nokia probably plans to handle the mobile design; thereby leaving its partners to deal with the other aspects like manufacturing, sales, and distribution of mobile devices. Towards that end, Suri told Manager Magazin: "Microsoft manufactures mobile phones, we would only design and make the brand name."
