The layoffs within the telefoontak Microsoft follow a year after the previous round of redundancies, where all 12,500 former Nokia employees their jobs lost . Moreover, former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop will soon be gone .

Nadella says Microsoft changes the focus of the phone division. “In the short term, we will manage a more effective and more focused portfolio of phones, while keeping the ability to do reinventions long-term mobility,” says Nadella. Thus it seems that Microsoft wants to make fewer phones. Last year brought a lot, especially lower priced Lumia transfers. According to ZDNet Microsoft’s only high-end models, making phones for businessmen and inexpensive models.

Microsoft writes an amount of $ 7.6 billion, down on the purchase of Nokia last year, now converted around 6.9 billion euros.
