It could be the scenario, actually, we have also assisted to up & down of several tech companies, we can't exclude they will back again and play a starring role.

They just announced they are planning to focus on mid-to-low cost phones instead of high-end phones - reason: they can't compete.

It is a possible point fo view, I am for; other view should be an action for increasing cash and for paying suppliers and employees, instead of cut jobs.

Well, I still believe they are trying to trim all the fat, in order to be a more attractive company (for share holders or possible buyers).

Basically, could it be a potential way for limiting expenses in infrastructure and trying to set up, for some defined internal group, as sort of virtual office by using mobile techs?

Well, I wasn't saying they were going to sell right away. But my take from it is that they are a leaner company with more cash, and, in many ways, losing a lot of ground in their market... when reading between lines, I can think they are creating a more interesting company for a potential buyer.

The first thing to do when you're bleeding cash is to get rid of all unnecessary expenses. Briack & mortar shops & they're associated costs are typically one of the most expensive expenditures. They usually go first.

Re-investing On...?

@Clairvoyant, that worries a bit. Imagine a firm selling millions of mobile phones to the world markets and now resorts to letting out part of its edifice for survival. Takes for instance, would that pay off BOM for million(s) of smartphones? If re-investing it should be on an innovative smarter device that could win any contest between either Apple or Samsung.

No, giving up office space won't save Nokia. It is just one of the steps of cutting back costs and hopefully re-investing money in the proper areas of the company.

@Wale

I think this sale will only help Nokia to fight the fire that is already going on. It is unlikely to help them gain the market success that they once had. With powerful competitors like Samsung and Apple so far ahead in the game, Nokia will have to come up with a new strategy and an innovation to have a chance in the game.
