The Nokia Devices and Services acquisition close date
Today we are excited to share that we have completed the steps necessary to finalize Microsoft's acquisition of the Nokia Devices and Services business. The transaction will be completed this Friday, April 25, when we'll officially welcome the Nokia Devices and Services business as part of the Microsoft family.
“The opportunity for Microsoft to be both a devices and services company, so that it can deliver the complete proposition to its consumers, is at the heart of this,” Stephen Elop, former Nokia CEO and now executive vice president of the Devices Group at Microsoft, said recently.Microsoft, Nokia Devices and Services business aim to remake mobile market [microsoft.com]
I find it interesting that Google divested itself of Motorola, yet Microsoft continued with the acquisition. Perhaps Microsoft can make a go of it.
