Unboxing of Nokia X17



Nokia's history dates back to 1865 when Finnish-Swede mining engineer Fredrik Idestam established a pulp mill near the town of Tampere, Finland (then in the Russian Empire). A second pulp mill was opened in 1868 near the neighbouring town of Nokia, offering better hydropower resources. 

In 1871, Idestam, together with friend Leo Mechelin, formed a shared company from it and called it Nokia Ab (in Swedish, Nokia Company being the English equivalent), after the site of the second pulp mill. Idestam retired in 1896, making Mechelin the company's chairman. 

Mechelin expanded into electricity generation by 1902 which Idestam had opposed. In 1904 Suomen Gummitehdas (Finnish Rubber Works). A rubber business founded by Eduard Polon established a factory near the town of Nokia and used its name.

In 1922, Nokia Ab entered into a partnership with Finnish Rubber Works and Kaapelitehdas (the Cable Factory). All now jointly under the leadership of Polon. Finnish Rubber Works company grew rapidly when it moved to the Nokia region. 

In 1930, to take advantage of the electrical power supply, and the cable company soon did too. Nokia at the time also made respirators for both civilian and military use, from the 1930s well into the early 1990s.

2010 to 2011

In late 2009 and in 2010, the music-focused Xseries and consumer-focused Cseries were introduced respectively. In April 2010 Nokia introduced its next flagship mobile device. The Nokia N8, which would be the first to run on Symbian. However, it was delayed for many months which tarnished the company's image. 

Especially, After the failure of its previous flagship N97 and tougher competition from Apple and the rising Google. On 10 September 2010Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo was fired as CEO and it was announced that Stephen Elop from Microsoft would take Nokia's CEO position, 

Becoming the first non-Finnish director in Nokia's history. It as claimed that investors pressed Nokia's board to recruit an outsider to shake up management and break from the traditional "Nokia way". Ollila had also announced that he would step down as Nokia chairman by 2012

On 11 March 2011, Nokia announced that it had paid Elop a $6 million signing bonus as "compensation for lost income from his prior employer", on top of his $1.4 million annual salary.

2013 to 2015

In September 2013, Nokia announced the sale of it's mobile and devices division to Microsoft. The sale was positive for Nokia to avoid further negative financial figures, As well as for Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmerwho wanted Microsoft to produce more hardware and turn it into a devices and services company. 

The Nokia chairman, Risto Siilasmaa described the deal as rationally correct (in the best interests of Nokia shareholders), But emotionally difficult - experts agree that Nokia would have been in a cash crisis had it not sold the division to Microsoft.

 Analysts believe that Ballmer pushed for the buyout because of fears that Nokia was close to adopting Android and abandoning their alliance with Microsoft. 

There had been speculation for long that Nokia was experimenting with Android at the time. In January 2014The Nokia X was introduced which ran on a customised version of Android. It was a surprising and somewhat odd launch coming just weeks away from the finalisation of the Microsoft buyout. 

Others, Including Ballmer's successor, Satya Nadella felt that Microsoft thought to merge their software teams with Nokia's hardware engineering and designs would "accelerate" growth of Windows Phone. 

The sale was completed in April 2014, With Microsoft Mobile becoming the successor to Nokia's mobile devices division. Nokia also moved from its headquarters to another building complex located at Karaportti. 

At the time, Ballmer himself was retiring as Microsoft CEO and was replaced by Satya Nadella, who opposed the Nokia mobile phones purchase, along with chairman Bill Gates. The purchased assets from Nokia were eventually written-off by Microsoft in 2015.

2016 to present

On 26 April 2016Nokia announced its intent to acquire French connected health device maker Withings for US$191 million. The company was integrated into a new Digital Health unit of Nokia Technologies. Nokia later wrote off the cost of the acquisition and in May 2018 the health unit was sold back to √Čric Carreel, a Withings co-founder and former CEO.

On 18 May 2016, Microsoft Mobile sold its Nokia-branded feature phone business to HMD Global, A new company founded by former Nokia executive Jean-Francois Baril, and an associated factory in Vietnam to Foxconn's FIH Mobile subsidiary. 

Nokia subsequently entered into a long-term licensing deal to make HMD the exclusive manufacturer of Nokia-branded phones and tablets outside Japan, operating in conjunction with Foxconn. 

The deal also granted HMD the right to essential patents and feature phone software. HMD subsequently announced the Android-based Nokia 6 smartphone in January 2017

At Mobile World Congress, HMD additionally unveiled the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 smartphones, as well as a re-imagining of Nokia's classic 3310 feature phone. While Nokia has no investment in the company, they do have some input in the new devices.

On 28 June 2016, Nokia demonstrated for the first time a 5G-ready network. In February 2017, Nokia carried out a 5G connection in Oulu, Finland using the 5GTF standard, backed by Verizon, on Intel architecture-based equipment.

On 5 July 2017Nokia and Xiaomi announced that they have signed a business collaboration agreement and a multi-year patent agreement, including a cross-license to each company's cellular standard-essential patents.

In 2017, Nokia's brand value Jumped 147 places to 188th place compared to 2016 in the Brand Finance ranking. Its rise was attributed to its health portfolio and new mobile phones developed by HMD Global.

On 19 January 2018Nokia signed a deal with NTT Docomo, Japan's largest mobile operator, to provide 5G wireless radio base stations in the country by 2020.

On 29 January 2018Nokia introduced the ReefShark line of 5G chipsets, claiming that it triples bandwidth to 84 Gbit/s. It will be released by Q3 2018It also incorporates artificial intelligence technologies from Bell Labs.

On 13 March 2018Solidium, the investment arm of the Finnish government, purchased a 3.3% stake in Nokia valued at €844 million. On 7 May 2018, Nokia announced that it has acquired a California-based IoT startup, SpaceTime Insight.

In January 2019, The Canadian government announced that it will provide C$40 million to support Nokia's research on 5G technology.
