Nokia to reduce investments in Services, add third party partners, cut 450 jobs
Today, Nokia announced that it wants to simplify the user experience across its services, as well as to invest in fewer initiatives coordinated by its Services unit, in order to streamline operations and “realize cost-efficiencies”.
This will open up opportunities for new third party partners that Nokia wants to add.
For example, the Finnish company says that the photo capture and sharing features of its phones will be enhanced by “other image and social networking sites”.
Also, as part of the upcoming changes, all mobile games currently published through their existing channels will be available via the Ovi Store too.
Nokia has also announced that its internal IT and Compatibility & Industry Collaboration activities would be integrated in the Corporate Development Office unit.
According to Nokia, about 450 employees will be affected by the mentioned changes.
