I am a little confused, as it can't be Japanese, so where is it from?

Cheers, Chazzer.

Posted by Flying Finn
Yep, Finland And it doesn't surprise me a lot of people don't know that. My brother in law works for them, he gets to use a lot of prototypes before they come commercially available. And I get to play with them every now and then

so whats the difference?

Posted by BobaFett
Nokia was/is a respectable rival.

Posted by vmunix
I also worked with Nokia Firewalls, these are very good firewalls based on Linux, another superb Finn product

Posted by plasmadog
meths, u thinking about salora?
tel.me from austria.


heard nokia was into pulp and paper industries before they ventured into telecom.
and i don't know if this is true, but a large percentage of the finnish gdp is through nokia. (like investments etc.). is it true?

@boba... was /// a purely telecommunications co. or had they diversified into other markets?

Posted by duo_m
@joebmc

i think you're thinking of the company nokian. they're the company that makes performance tires and rubber boots. they are originally from the town of nokia in finland but moved into a larger facility near the russian border. i should know, my mountain bike tires are nokian brands and they cost quite quite a pretty penny but worth the money spent on unlike their electronics brethen...

The headquarter of Nokia is in Finland and the big profits and taxes stay there! But the factories are in China, Brasilia and so on. The owners are Americans in most cases! Did u know that the mean factoryprice for a nokiaphone is 4.5 Euros!

Posted by vineet_d

They have 9 factories in 3 regions: Europe (including Finland), Americas and Asia. Recently they decided to close one in the US and build a new one in India.

Yes there is a town called Nokia in Finland, and I think it was started there...

Posted by Residentevil
There is a No Kia policy in my house.

Posted by BobaFett
When did nokia step in com biz?

Posted by sapporobaby
Sorry, but there is a town called Nokia and the phones are not produced there, but in the nearby town of Tampere. Second, at one time, Nokia was the largest single rubber boot seller to the Russian Army but then peace broke out and the govt had to think fast. So, they decided to invest in telecom. Helsinki is the home of the Nokia Headquarters. Also, Nokia was at one time about 15 years or so ago was about to go bust and guess which company from Sweden almost bought them? Look at the second word on your s700. The original CEO of Nokia also shot himself in the head trying to keep the company afloat.

By the way, I am not Finnish. I simply can read.

Posted by Matteus
Only afew phones of nokia are made in Finland! The two factories are in Oulu Liminka and in Salo.

i think what sapporo meant of second word on S700 is; Sony Ericsson
/// is the second word

Posted by Jake Blues
is true that nokia make tvs then?
if so it would be interesting to see the xpress on covers.


Posted by sapporobaby
Right. Ericsson alost bought out Nokia. However, it would be a bit rude to purchase a company where the CEO had just put a hole in his head.

Nokia makes Satellite boxes as well. They also make network equipment, wifi, etc... A good place to start would be: www.nokia.com.

Their network equipment sucks though. Ericsson (without the Sony) makes better networking (GSM, etc..) equipment.

Posted by Jake Blues
i thought i heard a while back that nokia sold thier satellite reciever division to pace?

Posted by duo_m
@sapporobaby

wow! i never knew that. thanks for the history lesson, mate

Posted by BobaFett
@sapporo nice post!!! :-)

Posted by soichiro
its amazing how a seemingly harmless and innocent question can span up to four pages of replies.

Posted by BobaFett
Nokia deserves it. The rival must be respected instead of underestimate it.
