Microsoft kills off Nokia X Android Line and Lays off 18,000 employee

17 July, 2014 Nokia

Microsoft CEO

 

Satya Nadella, Microsoft's CEO, announced today in an email to employees that the company is preparing to layoff a total of 18,000 people within the next year.

 

Additionally, Stephen Elop, chief of Microsoft devices, also announced that the Nokia X Android project is over. Future Nokia X designs and products will be shifted to Windows Phone devices. He notes that the company will make the shift immediately, but support and sales for existing Nokia X products will remain.

 

There's no further information on what's the destiny of the recently announced Nokia X2. It's an existing product technically, so it should go on sale, but given the new developments Microsoft might as well cancel it. After all, we doubt anyone will be interested in buying into the platform now that it's officially pronounced dead.
