Nokita wants to buy Nokia before Microsoft does

Nokia Inc. is one of the world’s largest phone companies, but it is slated to become part of one of the largest software companies of the world soon. Microsoft Inc. plans to spend more than $7 billion to acquire Nokia, which has already become the top makers of smart phones running on Microsoft’s Windows Phone software.

Nokita wants to buy Nokia before Microsoft does

But Nokita, a group is headed by a Finnish businessman and also a former Nokia employee, J. Parda, wants to make a bid for the Nokia before the Microsoft deal gets closed and keep this job in Finland while offering new phones that will run Android and Linux-based operating systems. And for this, he only needs to rise over $10 billion in the next two weeks to do it for the company.

It’s pretty unlikely that Nokita Inc. is going to succeed in buying Nokia Inc. and completely change the company’s direction in a competition with Microsoft, but it’s not like that Nokia hasn’t made some of the dramatic changes in its last few years. The company’s smart phone strategy was completely been tied up with their Symbian operating system and experimentation with the MeeGo Linux devices until Nokia started partnering with Microsoft on their Windows Phone devices to help fend off the competition from iOS and the Android devices.

According to Nokita, it would not be difficult to change this direction again. This group claims that Nokia has already been experimenting with some of their Android devices and that could bring them to market again by early 2014. Meanwhile, Nokia could always continue to sell their devices running on Microsoft software while betting on the Android and Linux for their future growth.

While that might certainly make Nokia’s phones a bit more versatile than ever and also bring support for a huge number of third-party apps, it is a lot harder to stand out in the Android smart phone space which is currently being dominated by other giant companies like Samsung and other market leaders including the Motorola, Sony, HTC and LG.
