Microsoft says goodbye to Finland

Two years ago Microsoft purchased Nokia company for 7.2 billion dollars. At that time buisness of the giant of smartphone production didn’t go so well. People were waiting for smartphones to move from Symbian OS to Windows Phone. We can’t say, that Nokia hasn’t made a single successfull phone since then, but everyone could see that the best years of the company had passed.

Recentley, Microsoft officially declared, that Lumia production is to be stopped and 1350 workers from Finland are to be fired. Looks like the deal wasn’t that successfull after all. However, Microsoft isn’t leaving the mobile market. The company is planning to start selling Surface smartphones next year. Well, let’s wish the Microsoft to develop a new concurent for Android and iOS smartphones and we hope that 200 million dollars as a general redundancy payment would be enough for specialists form Finland.
