Nokia-Branded Phones Return To US Market

Nokia-Branded Phones Return To US Market

Meanwhile, Nokia continued to sell handsets in Europe and Asia. Now, Nokia-branded phones are returning to the US market via Cricket and Verizon. These budget-minded Android-powered phones have sub-$200 price tags. With the current smartphone market decline, these handsets may see some decent sales. Can they compete with the fully-featured smartphone though?
