Huawei might consider buying Nokia -report

NEW YORK, June 18 (Reuters) - Chinese network equipment and cellphone maker Huawei Technologies Co. would consider buying Finland’s Nokia to help it expand its smartphone business, according to a story on the Financial Times website.

The story quoted the head of Huawei’s consumer business, Richard Yu, as saying: “We are considering these sorts of acquisitions; maybe the combination has some synergies but depends on the willingness of Nokia. We are open-minded.”

Nokia and Huawei were not immediately available for comment. Nokia’s U.S. shares were up 26 cents or 7 percent at $3.95 after the report.
