Yet, a new rumor reported by Re/code report suggests that the Finnish company will attempt to return to the consumer phone market as early as 2016.

It is well known that Nokia went bust several years ago, when it became clear that smartphones were the new mobile technology. In fact, the words used to describe the situation was a man standing at the edge of a “burning platform”. After selling its devices and services business to Microsoft back in 2013, we assumed that was the end of Nokia as we knew it.

Yet, a new rumor reported by Re/code report suggests that the Finnish company will attempt to return to the consumer phone market as early as 2016.

Although as of yet there is no intel on exactly what the specs will be or even what operating system it will run, we have a good hunch that it won’t operate Microsoft’s Windows, but instead will come with Android out of the box.

Nokia recently debuted their very own Android-based N1 tablet, and an entire Android platform known as Zlauncher, which is why we think they won’t return to a Microsoft-based partnership.

More importantly, the new project would be one of the three divisions that was not sold to Microsoft, Nokia Technologies, which was also responsible for the new Android collaboration. With more than 10,000 patents and licenses for new products, there are even some rumors that believe Nokia is experimenting with other cool, new tech products - like virtual reality.

Anyways, all we can say for now is rumor. But another rumor swirling about is that Nokia is attempting to buy competitor Alcatel-Lucent for $16.6 billion in stock.
