Nokia to cut 4,000 jobs and outsource 3,000 Symbiam workers to Accenture

Nokia announced last Wednesday that it will cut 4,000 jobs and outsource its Symbian development team to Accenture.

Layoffs will occur on a rolling basis until the end of 2012, during which time Nokia plans to ramp up production of devices based on Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 platform. Most of the affected employees will be in Denmark, Finland, and the UK, and those departing now can stay on the Nokia payroll until the end of 2011.
