Former Nokia CEO is Going to Launch "NewKia" Brand


This may sound weird and possibly make many of the android lovers happy. NewKia a new company was formed the day Microsoft, Nokia got together. Thomas Zilliacus, former CEO of Nokia came up with the NewKia idea, in fact he wanted to buy Nokia but couldn’t due to lack of funds.

According to Thomas Zilliacus many consumers are not happy with the Windows OS, moreover the number of Android users is multiplying as compared to that of Windows. Windows OS share is too small and this prevents many developers from developing their apps for the same.

He believes that Nokia has the best know how when it comes to Mobile technology and he wants to get in the best people to join NewKia. The idea is to use the Nokia technology and design / built the best smartphones, of course running on the Android OS.

To start with they would want to launch a new phone every year depending on funds and employee strength. In an interview with Zdnet, Zilliacus pointed out that in 2003, Nokia had a prototype that looked similar to the iPhone (this was 4 years before iPhone was launched). But that never happened just because Nokia thought that the market would reject the design, he still has the prototype in a drawer.

Well if the NewKia company could start-up we could see Nokia quality phones running Android OS, but will the brand matter?

They should change the "newkia" because it sounds like a chinese copy of nokia(like NOKLA).

Exactly. NewKia doesn't sound like the next Big Thing, rather name of an El Cheapo Chinese copy of Nokia.

Re: Former Nokia CEO is Going to Launch "NewKia" Brand

Lolsworthy name and super lolz idea, he doesn't have the money, then also he wants nokia employees to join him !
All employees are reading between the lines, though some may join him but android is not profitable for any company except Samsung !

Re: Former Nokia CEO is Going to Launch "NewKia" Brand

^Exactly
He doesn't have money.
The only thing he can do is to rebrand some chinese copy phones under "newkia" brand and do some work to improve its chinese crappy UI and add a good battery , sell it.

Re: Former Nokia CEO is Going to Launch "NewKia" Brand

He is just an ex CEO for God's sake !! what can he do?
No exCEO of any company in the world can do stuff without that whole company.. never been done and never could be done...

I would advise him to join HTC and provide his loosing ideas to them ! or better yet he should join apple or sony !

Re: Former Nokia CEO is Going to Launch "NewKia" Brand

One of the main points is that all the technology and patents have been bought by Microsoft and that is why his plans seem even more absurd. How can one expect a Nokia phone without their technology.

Nokia have not sold patents. They are licensed to Microsoft for 10 years.

Re: Former Nokia CEO is Going to Launch "NewKia" Brand

Apple sounds good name? Samsung sounds good name ?

A company is not judged by the name, but by their works. Apple name got famous because of iPhones.. same with other companies and their works.

I sure am looking forward to their work. Not was a fan of nokia though, but I sure was when symbian was on it's great days. So , yeah let's do it newkia, show us what you peeps can do.

It is not just the name. I think the main problem is the transition - Nokia to NewKia.

Anyway I think this name is just too lame

Thats the point of whole conversation, if he has potential to make great phones and sell them, why does he need a company name resembling an already familiar brand, why not start fresh with a new name? A buyer would be comfortable buying Samsung phone, but would he still be equally comfortable buying phone of a company named SAMESONG even if it was started by former Samsung CEO.
