Nokia's phone business units now under one umbrella

Nokia wants to get all its mobileheads into one hierarchy or org chart, so the Finnish mobile phone giant is consolidating all of if mobile development into a brand new business unit. This new department within corporate Nokia will be curiously called the "Device" unit, which we see as a direct but unflattering name nonetheless. This new business unit will handle all of Nokia's mobile devices from normal cellphones to Symbian smartphones to N800-esque tablet devices, as the three separate divisions that handle these devices will now be combined. Nokia is also creating two new divisions in this reorganization -- Software & Services and Markets -- to replace existing structure in those areas as well.
