We know that Nokia will be returning to the mobile market in the near future, but according to Nokia spokesman Robert Morlino, Nokia's return to where it once dominated is "complicated".

Morlino added that in order for Nokia to return to the mobile market, it needs to partner up with a company on the manufacturing, sales, marketing and consumer support side of things. Nokia needs to find a company that will allow the Finnish company to be in control of the design and technology of the devices while outsourcing everything else.

One of the biggest hurdles Nokia has in front of it is that an agreement sits between the company and Microsoft, which ties Nokia's hands behind its back until the end of Q1 2016. We could see Nokia release an Android-powered handset, but we will see more about Nokia's new flagship device early next year.
