About the Company
 Nokia Corporation (NYSE: NOK) is one of the world's largesttelecommunications equipment manufacturers. With headquarters inKeilaniemi of Espoo, Finland, this Finnish telecommunications company is best known today for its leading range of mobile phones. Nokia also produces mobile phone infrastructure and other telecommunicationsequipment for applications such as traditional voice telephony, ISDN, broadband access, professional mobile radio, voice over IP, wireless LANand a line of satellite receivers. Nokia provides mobile communication equipment for every major marketand protocol, including GSM, CDMA, and WCDMA. Nokia was established in 1865 as a wood-pulp mill by Fredrik Idestam on the banks of Nokia rapids. Finnish Rubber Works established its factories in the beginning of 20th century nearby and began using Nokia as its brand. Shortlyafter World War I Finnish Rubber Works acquired Nokia wood mills as wellas Finnish Cable Works, a producer of telephone and telegraph cables. Allthree companies were merged as Nokia Corporation in 1967. The name Nokia originated from the river which flowed through the town of the samename (Nokia).
In the 1970s Nokia became more involved in the telecommunicationsindustry by developing the Nokia DX 200, a digital switch for telephoneexchanges. In the 1980s, Nokia offered a series of personal computers calledMikroMikko [1], however, these operations were sold to InternationalComputers, Ltd. (ICL), which was later merged with Fujitsu-Siemens AG. Nokia also began developing mobile phones for the NMT network;unfortunately, the company ran afoul of serious financial problems in the1990s and streamlined its manufacturing of mobile phones, mobile phoneinfrastructure, and other telecommunications areas, divesting itself of other items, such as televisions and personal computers.In 2004, Nokia resorted to similar streamlining practices with layoffs andorganizational restructuring, although on a significantly smaller scale. This,however, diminished Nokia's public image in Finland, and produced anumber of court cases along with, at least, one television show critical of  Nokia.Recently, Nokia joined other mobile phone manufacturers to embraceTaiwanese Original Device Manufacturers. Nokia signed a contract withBenQ, a Taiwanese Original Device Manufacturer, to develop three high-endmobile phones, which are scheduled to retail by the end of 2005.
