In questi ultimi mesi, Microsoft è stata impegnata nell’ottenere da parte delle Autorità garanti dei Paesi in cui svolge attività commerciali il via libera all’acquisizione di Nokia, costata alle casse dell’azienda la cifra di 7.17 miliardi di dollari.

Con la chiusura dell’operazione si conclude anche l’avventura del brand Nokia: attraverso una mail inviata ai fornitori, infatti, è stato comunicato ai dipendenti che la società “Nokia Oy” (dove “Oy” sta per “Osakeyhtiö”, termine finlandese che definisce la tipologia di società di capitali equivalente alla dicitura italiana “SpA”) cambierà definitivamente nome in “Microsoft Mobile Oy”.
Qui sotto viene riportato il contenuto integrale della mail (in lingua inglese).
