Nokia Doesn't Rule Out Handset Sale

2:00 PM -- A Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK) executive isn't ruling out the possibility of selling its handset business in the longer term.

The company's marketing head, Anssi Vanjoki, reportedly told German magazine, Wirtschaftswoche, that the company would "never say never" when considering a sell-off in the long term.

Don't hold your breath, however -- the Finnish firm currently sees its world-leading handset business as a competitive advantage, even if it is feeling more heat these days from the Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) and BlackBerry .

The big questions that arise for me are: Which vendor would actually buy Nokia's handset business, and how much would they have to pay?
