Nokia cuts jobs in Internet services

The world's top cellphone maker Nokia said on Wednesday it was looking to cut 200 jobs at its new Internet services unit.

"The unit plans to integrate some of our content delivery services into a single service," Nokia said, adding its Internet services push continued unchanged with a focus on music, games, messaging and location based services.

Nokia is investing heavily in building up Internet services as the cellphone market matures, and said it would hire more than 200 people elsewhere within the unit this year.

"We have made great progress with the initial offering this year and I see great potential going forward as we bring context aware Internet services to people's pockets," Niklas Savander, head of the unit, said in a statement.
