A recent tweet has possibly revealed some good news for Nokia fans in Europe, claiming that Nokia recently established a partnership with a German service provider Mobilcom-Debitel and will soon be bringing its Android devices to the country. The tweet was published on Monday by Roland Quandt, a relatively reliable industry insider. Roughly translated, the posting suggests that Nokia 150 was only the beginning of the company's plans in Germany. It also claims that Nokia and Mobilcom-Debitel agreed to a long-term partnership with plans to launch future Nokia smartphones and sell them through the carrier's retail network. This information should, of course, be taken with some measure of skepticism as it is not an official announcement from either the carrier or Nokia itself, though such a partnership is certainly not impossible.
If the two firms established a partnership, there are several prospective devices that Mobilcom-Debitel may bring to Germany. The recently released Nokia 6 is not likely to be among those since Nokia previously confirmed that the extremely popular device is going to be a Chinese exclusive. The device is reported to have netted around 2.4 million sales split between two ordering periods. However, Nokia is also expected to launch its flagship Nokia P1 in the coming months and several concepts and rumors related to the device have already been circulating the industry for some time now. If Nokia struck a deal with Mobilcom-Debitel, then it's possible that the Nokia P1 will eventually find its way to Germany. It may also be far more likely that Nokia will launch an entirely new device designed specifically for the German market. While this rumor prompted a lot of speculation in the industry, no other information has yet been revealed.
Similar partnerships between manufacturers and service providers are not at all uncommon. However, it is a bit unusual for neither company to make an official announcement about such a partnership. With the Nokia brand having only recently been relaunched, Nokia would likely want to build publicity for its devices despite the fact that its brand still enjoys a loyal following. More information will hopefully follow soon.
