Nokia cuts 800 more jobs amidst struggles
Nokia has been struggling as of late, and that should come as no surprise with the announcement that the Finnish mobile giant is laying off 800 employees, only 2 months after they cut ties with 1800 employees from around the globe.

Fortunately, an agreement was reached between Nokia and the employees they are cutting ties with. The agreement will see that the laid off employees will get severance pay for anywhere from 5-15 months. Some of the laid off employees may even get other positions with the company, though details of that situation will most likely remain within the walls of Nokia.

Nokia is certainly not the only company having to cut back on their workforce, and it should come as no surprise given how their competition has thickened and the current state of various worldwide economies. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

Nokia phones are fine in specs, but their dated OS will lead to further layoffs without major alterations.

Its so sad, a company with so much potential is not doing so good has its competitors, just a few years back no company could compete with nokia, now its losing grown to its competitors just because the exec @ nokia were making so much money and forgot the company needs to be innovative and stay ahead of the competition. Nokia is the largest phone make and can afford to adopt other operating system like Google's Android or Windows 7 or 6.5, this decision will give the consumers the choice of a great hardware and the software of there choice. My advice to Nokia exec dump symbian its to little to late to revive it, work on Meego and adopt other OS platform to stay in business, 80% to 90% of former user and current nokia user want other OS on nokia's platform. A company that doesn't listen to its fans and consumers will fail.
