Posted by

Nokia has announced the movement of 3,000 of their Symbian developers to Accenture, an outsourcing company that has worked with Nokia in the past. This means that all Symbian development work is now from Accenture on behalf of Nokia. Accenture will be behind the mobile OS and its future versions, helping to drive the next 150 million Symbian devices in Nokia’s roadmap, as well as also be providing some Windowsphone development for the Finnish company.

In related news, Nokia is laying off another 4,000 developers.
