    So there is no picture of an actual new phone? Nokia was the king and now.... We need a sexy phone which is not too small or big and we can take it anywhere, and powerful enough to replace a tablet.

    I do believe Nokia is forbidden from making any phones for at least 5 years via the terms with Microsoft

    So SunLord if you read up above they mention the phone Nokia is currently selling.

    Sttm, the N1 is a tablet, not a phone
  • close - Monday, March 2, 2015 - link

    They do sell feature phones though. I'm guessing they are not allowed to sell Windows/Android phones.
