Nokia cuts thousands of jobs, sheds Symbian OS
In March came the announcement of Nokia's new strategy to phase out Symbian OS and focus on Microsoft's Windows Phone. Today came some of the hard reality of the change.
The Finnish phone maker announced it's transferring 3,000 Symbian employees to consulting firm Accenture and cutting another 4,000 by the end of 2012. Most of the cuts will affect employees in Denmark, Finland, and the U.K.
