In a recent interview with gadgets.ndtv.com, HMD’s CEO Arto Nummela gave some interesting details about the collaboration between Nokia, HMD and Foxconn.
What is Nokia bringing to the table? Nummela: “We are not only licensing the brand, we are buying the capability on the IPR side, IPR protection for us, and then we are also looking for collaboration to utilise the unique technologies Nokia has in-house to enhance the user experience.”
Editor’s note: What these technologies are was not elaborated upon, and a follow-up query confirmed that technologies such as PureView, for example, will remain with Microsoft.
Arto repeated that the upcoming smartphones will carry the Nokia logo, and will be “truly Nokia, inside out”. Nummela also stated that HMD will have access to Nokia’s “in-house” technologies, which is an excellent thing because Nokia has a huge IP portfolio in mobile.
