"nearly 100% of people around the world got no knowledge about Nokia business portfolio but, phone.  Ask people, even technical professionals in the field of telecoms and IT. Mention word Nokia, it's like a synonyms to mobilephone."

Wale, Smartphone is the only products from Nokia for common peoples and hence in customer mind Nokia means phone manufacturer. But apart from that, they have many other communication products for the corporate word.

>>Nokia is stil a company that is well alive with three divisions<<

@Susan, nearly 100% of people around the world got no knowledge about Nokia business portfolio but, phone.  Ask people, even technical professionals in the field of telecoms and IT. Mention word Nokia, it's like a synonyms to mobilephone.

Nevertheless, is there any products the firm's planning to role out soon?

"This is about supply chain agility and supply chain management. It's about what works and what doesn't work. Maybe reading the whole story could help?"

Susan, I meant about supply chain management in Nokia as whole.

"This story is not about phones, and it's not about Nokia's ex-handset division. And it's definietly not about Microsoft new handset business. "

Susan, I mean about Nokia in general. Eventhough it has many divisions, its famous for mobile phones among common peoples.

Jacob, 

I think you don't see the point behind this story and are confusing it with a story about Nokia's ex-handset division business, which doesn't exist anymore as part of Nokia, but as part of Microsof. Nokia has nothing to do with phones anymore and this article is not about a phone business.

This is about supply chain agility and supply chain management. It's about what works and what doesn't work. Maybe reading the whole story could help?

Microsoft acquired only Nokia's handset division. There are three divisions that Nokia runs today: Networks, HERE, and Technologies. You speak of Nokia as if the company doesn't exist anymore, or as if the only thing that can be related to Nokia is phones.

t.alex, 

There is more Nokia that just the handset division that was sold to Microsoft. This is something many people don't seem to understand. 

Nokia is stil a company that is well alive with three divisions.

"I still remember E63 was still my favourite phone while everyone was around was playing with iphone :-) Symbian OS was pretty good and the battery  can lasts for days."

Alex, that's old stories. Let's wait and see about the various offerings from MS through Lumina series.
