It's tough to say exactly what has transpired to cause the world's largest cell phone manufacturer to shutter 100 jobs around the world. One of Nokia's spokeswoman announced that the company plans to cut 100 “strategy jobs” out of a total 330 from different parts of its operations, but it wasn't made clear as to what these positions entailed.
