Nokia doesn’t exclude the possibility of selling its handset division

In an interview that should appear tomorrow (Monday) in the German magazine Wirtschaftswoche, Nokia’s head of marketing Anssi Vanjoki talked about the company’s future.

While speaking about how Nokia needs to quickly “boost its offering of mobile internet solutions” (which are mainly related to the Ovi brand), Mr. Vanjoki said that, in the long term, the company doesn’t exclude an eventual sale of its mobile phone business.

Of course, the chances for Nokia’s handset division to be actually sold are very slim, but the fact that the company’s execs see this as a possibility is surely interesting.

Now the question is: if Nokia would, at some point, want to sell its phone making business, who do you think should buy it? Samsung, maybe? :)

    Google could buy Nokia's handset division and put Android on Nokia hardware.

    I don't think this has much reality. Nokia is world leader in manufacturing handsets and they would definitely like to build upon this.
