Nokia sells more real estate to raise cash
Last December, in order to raise some cash, Nokia sold its Headquarters in Espoo for 170 million EUR or $222 million USD. But Nokia didn't depart the facility, it leased it back from the new owners. Earlier in March, it had sold its New York Headquarters. What brings this up is the news that the Finnish based handset manufacturer did some more pruning of its real estate portfolio.

On Tuesday, Nokia told the Finnish Stock Exchange that it had sold its Peltola campus for 30.5 million EUR ($40.8 million USD). The buyer was a company called Technopolis which provides business space in the country. 37,600sqm of the campus is rentable space. Nokia will lease back a small portion of the building.


Despite some success with its current top of the line Nokia Lumia 920, the company remains an also-ran in the global smartphone industry. The one time leader in the global smartphone market, Nokia is expected to soon introduce a new high-end Windows Phone model with a camera sensor similar to the 42MP one that adorns the Nokia 808 PureView.
