Ex-Rovio CEO and Nokia veteran Pekka Rantala to bring Nokia Android phones to the market
In an interesting turn of events, Nokia phones are to be brought to the market by a Finnish exec once again. A seven-year Nokia veteran and ex-Rovio CEO, Pekka Rantala will assume the position of Chief Marketing Officer at HMD Global Oy, the Finnish company that aims to reboot the Nokia brand for smartphones. You may remember that HMD and Nokia struck an exclusive licensing deal for delivering Nokia-branded devices back to the market.

Made by HMD in partnership with Foxconn Technology's FIH Mobile subsidiary, the new Nokia-branded smartphones will run Android. Alas, this is about as much as we know of them. The company is yet to announce any models, timetables, or specific smartphone-related information at all. Given recent developments, that ought to happen soon. Anyone interested in a Nokia Android? Yes, we did have the Nokia X and Nokia XL, but hardly anyone wants to remember them nowadays, right?
