Huawei invades Nokia's turf, plans on opening R&D center in Finland
posted by Alan F. / Dec 10, 2012, 11:02 AM
This will be Huawei's first office in the country, but its 11th in Europe. The company currently has 7,000 workers in Europe, a number likely to hit 14,000 by 2017. Back in September, the company announced a $2 billion commitment to the U.K. with another R&D center scheduled to open in Spain.
The new Finnish R&D center for Huawei will be minutes away from Nokia's HQ in Espoo. The beleaguered Finnish handset company recently entered into a sale and lease back agreement for the building.

Good luck all the very best! Very bad news for Nokia, unless they kick the board members and that Eflop, Nokia will be joining BB! We hope both to do good business.

It saddens me to hear great companies like Nokia and BB going down. That's competition dying right there something very bad in the long run.
