The maker of Nokia phones HMD Global has lately been investing more and more resources into software and services, but not directly tied to Nokia Android smartphones, but more as independent ventures into the telecom space. On the April 8th event, alongside the new X, C and G series of devices, Nokia Mobile also introduced HMD Mobile.
HMD Mobile is a mobile virtual network operator that will be doing business in the United Kingdom, offering call, text and data plans. HMD’s offer uses EE’s network and the service should go live by the end of this month. The bundles should “start from £6.50 per month for unlimited UK/EU calls and texts and 1GB data and go up to 25GB of data per month”, with more details promised as the service launches, but I didn’t manage to find more info, especially how to order the card or the detailed pricing, so I assume it hasn’t gone live yet.
At the European Union Intellectual Property Office HMD Global submited a request for the “HMD Mobile” trademark. The application has been filed on 8th April with the filing number 018449485. It is currently under examination.
Other service trademarks Nokia Mobile applied for include Simley, HMD Connect, and HMD Enable Pro, if I am not mistaken, only HMD Connect is an actual product the company offers at the moment.
