It Sure Looks Like Nokia Is Blowing It Again

There was a time when Nokia was the undisputed king of mobile phones, with quarterly sales of over 120 million units as recently as 2010. But after a failed partnership ended with Nokia selling its handset division to Microsoft, the company tried reinventing itself by pivoting to wearables, a move capped off when Nokia bought Withings, a French health tracker company, for $190 million (£136 million) in June of 2016.

Slapping a Fancy Name on Nokia’s New Smartphone Cameras Won’t Make Them Good
