Ex-Nokia Employee To Make Premium Android Phones With His New Startup, Adaia

adaiaNokia‘s layoffs are almost legendary now, and while the once-giant of mobile technology’s fortunes are on the way up, it hasn’t been a smooth transition for all. Thankfully though, this has given plenty of ex-Nokia employees the opportunity to launch their own startups, including some guys called Rovio. Another man who intends to startup a business in the smartphone manufacturing market is one Heikki Sarajärvi, ex-Nokia of course.

Sarajärvi intends to lead his band of 16 employees in a company called Adaia, building premium Android handsets that will cost between “1,000 and 5,000 euros”, putting it right in the price range of some very established names in the premium business, like Vertu. Some sketchy features which have been detailed by Digitoday include a 4.8-inch screen, and a system that allows interchangable batteries without turning the phone off, all thanks to an internal battery powering the phone during transitions.

The phone will also apparently work underwater and up to 9,000 meters above sea level, and will weight about 240-250 grams, which is around 60-70 grams heavier than a Galaxy Note 2. If you wanted a device like this before Christmas, you’re out of luck, but Sarajärvi says the device will be out next year in Finland, the U.K. and U.S..

Who would like a phone like that? More importantly, who would be able to afford it? Let us know how loaded you are in the comments.
