their deal with Microsoft prevents them from getting back into the phone business until Q4 2016, so we won't be seeing Nokia phones soon either way.
New phones typically take years to develop and bring to market. I don't think Q4 2016 is prohibitive at all.
That's about a year...even if Nokia started today designing a new phone it would be kind of amazing if they had it ready to go to market by Q4 2016.
They say "You have to go away to come back" and Nokia definitely went away so....
