Tech park will support a number of incubator and startup projects

Nokia Oyj. (HEX:NOK1V) has gone through some hard times.  Sales are down and layoffs abound. But the company is trimmer and hungrier, posting its first profit in quarters.

The company announced another positive step, reaching a deal to sell its Oulu, Finland Peltola campus.  The campus will be purchased by Techpopolis Oyj. (FH:TPS1V), which owns several campuses in Finnish cities.  Techpopolis will pay Nokia $42.6M USD (€31.7M) for the 37,600 sq. meter space, which includes an 800-car parking garage.

Techpopolis already owns a neighboring facility dubbed "Kontinkangas", which has roughly 27,000 sq. meters of space.  The incubator effort rents space to various startups.  Currently Kontinkangas houses a university, hospital, and other businesses.  Techpopolis is renting to or in talks with 100 different firms looking to rent space at that campus.  The company estimates that the campus will create 700 new high-tech jobs by 2016.

Despite selling the building, Nokia will maintain a major presence at the Peltola campus.  It has signed a long-term lease for 17,400 sq. meters of space -- or roughly half the campus.  Nokia, which is offering cash to its laid off engineers to help them start new companies, could find some of its former employees as co-leasees.

By selling and leasing its buildings Nokia builds its cash pile and potentially frees itself for a transition to the lucrative American and Chinese markets.  Nokia works closely with Windows Phone partner Microsoft Corp. (MSFT), but likely any such distance corporate relationship, the lack of strong local presence has at times complicated matters.

what the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
