Nokia was once nearly synonymous with cellular phones, but there could soon be a day where its name is not found on any new devices. As part of Microsoft?s $7.17 billion deal, Nokia is selling essentially its entire phone business. As for the Nokia name, in general, it stays with what remains of the Finnish company ? an entity that will be in the network equipment, mapping and patent businesses.
