Nokia was also a significant contributor to the mobile telephony industry, having assisted in development of the GSM standards, and was, for a period, the largest vendor of mobile phones in the world. Nokia's dominance also extended into the smartphone industry through its Symbian platform, but it was soon overshadowed by the growing dominance of Apple's iPhone line and Android devices. Nokia eventually entered into a pact with Microsoft in 2011 to exclusively use its Windows Phone platform on future smartphones.In September 2013, Microsoft announced that it would acquire Nokia's mobile phone business as part of an overall deal totaling €5.44 billion . Stephen Elop, Nokia's former CEO, and several other executives joined the new Microsoft Mobile subsidiary of Microsoft as part of the deal, which was completed on 25 April 2014.In November 2014, following the Microsoft sale, Nokia announced plans to license product designs and technologies to third-party manufacturers, primarily to enable a continued presence for the Nokia brand in the consumer market.

In an example embodiment, a method, apparatus and computer program product are provided. The method includes facilitating receipt of a plenoptic image associated with a scene, the plenoptic image including plenoptic micro-images and being captured by a focused plenoptic camera. The method includes generating plenoptic vectors for the plenoptic micro-images of the plenoptic image, where an individual plenoptic vector is generated for an individual plenoptic micro-image. The method includes assigning disparities for the plenoptic micro-images of the plenoptic image. A disparity for a plenoptic micro-image is assigned by accessing a plurality of subspaces associated with a set of pre-determined disparities, projecting a plenoptic vector for the plenoptic micro-image in the plurality of subspaces, calculating a plurality of residual errors based on projections of the plenoptic vector in the plurality of subspaces, and determining the disparity for the plenoptic micro-image based on a comparison of the plurality of residual errors.

An approach is provided for determining a communication session established between at least one first device of at least one first user and at least one second device of at least one second user, wherein the at least one first device and the at least one second device are in a collaborative context detection relationship. The privacy platform causes, at least in part, a detection of a presence of at least one third user within a proximity threshold of the at least one first device, the at least one second device, the at least one first user, the at least one second user, or a combination thereof, wherein the detection is performed via the collaborative context detection relationship. The privacy platform also determines one or more modifications to one or more privacy profiles for information exchanged over the communication session based, at least in part, on the detection of the presence of the at least one third user.
