In an interview with European Communications, an industry trade magazine, Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri says that while there has been “significant interest” with quality bids, it still may not sell:
Let’s give it more time… We may not end up selling it if we don’t get the right value…It has to be a good competitive deal for Nokia and our shareholders.
Of course, as European Communications speculates, that could just be a tactic to stimulate the bidding. It isn’t clear how Here fits with the rest of the new Nokia’s strategy, even if it’s still toying with hardware.
