Nokia is showing no signs of financial improvement in the coming year and will likely experience increased operating losses, according to Credit Suisse as reported in

The financial services firm suggested that it may be in the best interest of Nokia to sell off its business units such as IP and telecom to interested rivals. Putting the entire company up for sale may not generate as much interest.

Nokia was once the leading mobile phone brand until recently when the popularity of smartphones surged and the likes of Apple's iPhone became a consumer staple. Its market share over the past five years suffered a huge decline resulting in massive layoffs across its facilities worldwide. The Finnish telecom giant is expected to slash close to 10,000 jobs by the end of next year as it shuts down manufacturing plants and research sites in Europe and North America.
