The n­ew director at Nokia Romania, Risto Meskus has said that the local handset factory is preparing to move from basic phone assembly to more complex smartphones.
Meskus told the local Capital newspaper that the time was right for such a migration up the value chain.

He did not specify which models would be produced at the factory though.

The factory, situated in the village of Jucu just outside Cluj started production in February 2008 and currently has some 4,000 staff. Nokia, which controversially moved production from Germany is not the only company in the Romanian city of Cluj. It has courted Vodafone and Orange and Romanian software developers too. The boom is putting pressure on the city though - as the population has jumped from some 300,000 to over 500,000 in just a few years as technology companies flood into the city.

In Romania, Nokia has a market share of 50%, followed by Samsung with 28% and LG with 10%
