Microsoft axes another 2850 smartphone hardware jobs

It looks like Microsoft has now completely eliminated all the jobs it absorbed as part of its 2013 acquisition of Nokia's phone business. ExtremeTech reports the software giant announced 2,850 additional layoffs in its smartphone hardware division, on top of significant cuts in previous quarters and years.
The new round of cuts will drop 2,850 jobs from the company in total. The news comes by way of a US regulatory filing that noted Microsoft was “reevaluating” how to deploy its resources. This comes after another big round of mobile-focused cuts in May that included 1,850 jobs. That’s also when Microsoft confirmed that it was pulling back from smartphones, but it wasn’t technically killing Windows on phones. Still, with no staff to develop phone software, you have to wonder what Microsoft is going to do in mobile.
