Nokia cutting 1,700 poor souls

Oh, Nokia. Over the next few months, the handset maker plans on cutting 1,700 jobs. These cuts will effect the handset and marketing unit, as well as corporate development and global support functions. It’s all because the company is expecting the weakest first quarter since the first part 2001. So, help ’em out, will ya? Buy a N96 or two. (or win the one we’re giving away next week)
