Nokia Oyj će postati Microsoft Mobile Oyj, a Nokia će zadržati postojeće dobavljače nakon prodaje odjela?!

Nokia_HQ

Pred sam završetak prodaje Odjela za uređaje i usluge Microsoftu, na svjetlo dana je izašlo pismo koje je Nokia uputila postojećem Odjelu za dobavljače opreme unutar Odjela za uređaje. Pismo otkriva nekoliko detalja vezanih uz buduće ime odjela te ponašanje dobavljača prema Nokiji. U pismu stoji kako će Microsoft naslijediti sve obaveze Nokijinog odjela za uređaje i usluge a time sve dobavljače i partnere te da se poslovanje Odjela nastavlja kao i prije. Također stoji kako će se sadašnje ime tvrtke koja vodi Odjel, Nokia Oyj, nakon prodaje zvati Microsoft Mobile Oyj što će biti u Microsoftov Odjel za mobilne uređaje sa sjedištem u Finskoj, odnosno u gradu Espoo gdje se sada nalazi ubrzo bivša Nokia House.

Nadalje, Nokia je naglasila kako želi da isti dobavljači za budući Microsoft Mobile Oyj ostanu dobavljači za preostala poslovanja Nokije, odnosno NSN, HERE i Ured napredne tehnologije nakon prodaje Odjela uređaja i usluga. Ovo je jako zanimljivo jer su dobavljači potrebni samo ako se planiraju budući mobilni uređaji. Nokia je već prije naglasila kako će razvijeti i ulagati u mobilnu tehnologiju, a poznato nam je da će u trećem tromjesečju predstaviti i svoj pametni sat. Isto tako možemo očekivati i novi hardver od HERE odjela što je već prije spomenuto.
