After the acquirement, Nokia’s plan is to focus on three core technologies: the networking infrastructure (NSN), the maps and location-based services (HERE), and Advanced Technologies. Nokia gave details of how Microsoft will license Nokia’s brand, indicating that Microsoft has agreed to a 10-year license arrangement with Nokia to use the company’s brand name on current and subsequently developed products based on the Series 30 and Series 40 operating systems.
