HELSINKI (Reuters) - The world's top cellphone maker Nokia NOK1V.HE said on Tuesday it would establish a research center in Lausanne, Switzerland, in collaboration with two Swiss federal institutes of technology.
The center, due to open in June, will focus on pervasive communications -- services and applications that use information from the user’s surroundings or personal preferences.
“(Nokia) sees the fusing of the digital and physical worlds as a key objective in mobility,” Nokia’s Chief Technology Officer Bob Iannucci said in a statement.
