Nokia has just filed for trademark protection for the name “Viki” with the European Union. The term is classified to apply to the following:
Software for the creation and monitoring of mobile and web digital asssistants working with knowledge and combining all data sources into a single chat and voice based interface.
In other words, another proprietary digital assistant, if not a Google Assistant.
HMD Global launched the Nokia 6 smartphone in China this week, the first of several to come this year, so we’re trying to see where Viki will land and, if it will, how.
