Nokia mobile phone customers to benefit from improved internet?
Customers who trade-in a mobile phone and sign up to a deal with Finnish brand Nokia may soon find the quality of internet they experience via their handset is on the up.
That is because the company has outlined its target to acquire the public carrier wireless infrastructure of Motorola.
Nokia notes it is waiting on approval from authorities in China before completing the deal in the first quarter of 2011.
It has already been accepted by regulatory boards in the US, Brazil, Japan, Russia and the European Union.
Rajeev Suri, chief executive office of Nokia Siemens Networks, says: "We are continuing to work closely with the authority in China to finalise the clearance process in that country. We recognise its efforts in addressing this case as a matter of importance."
Last month, the popularity of Nokia's internet services was perhaps illustrated when its Ovi Store platform passed the three million daily downloads landmark.
