The cuts keep coming for Nokia as it refocuses the smartphone side of its business around Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform.

That means a new round of job losses – 4,000 in total out of around 65,000 employees worldwide. “Reductions are expected to take place in phases until the end of 2012, linked to the rollout of Nokia’s planned product and services portfolio,” explains the company, while also announcing plans to transfer its Symbian smartphone operation to Accenture, along with 3,000 more employees.
