Microsoft Looks to Make Signficant Changes with Former Nokia Handset Unit

by Ken Hyers | 7月 30, 2014

Nokia's global handset shipments dipped slightly in Q2 2014 with smartphone and feature phone volumes sluggish. Microsoft has recently embarked on a major cost-cutting program to restore Nokia's profitability, after it lost millions of dollars in the first half of this year. Significant changes for Nokia include factory closures, employee layoffs, and a de-emphasising of the Android and feature phone range.  Signficant new introductions include the Lumia 930 smartphone with 20 megapixel camera and Microsoft Phone 8.1 OS, the latest version of Microsoft's mobile phone platform.
