Nokia’s mobile development will remain located in Finland, it should serve as the framework for Microsoft’s “main office” in Europe. It has the outgoing Microsoft ceo, Steve Ballmer, has just stated at a press conference Tuesday morning.

Microsoft takes over 32,000 out of a total of 56,000 Nokia employees, as part of the deal, which also in addition to Nokia’s mobile division also buys Microsoft ten years of use of its rich amount of important mobile patents.

-“Microsoft has already 12,000 employees in Europe. Finland becomes the center of research and development of phones, therefore we have no plans to change how work is done, “so said Steve Ballmer.

In addition to the purchase of Nokia, Microsoft has also announced that Finland will be the homeland for a new Microsoft data center, which will serve Europe. This is an investment of 250 million dollars over the next year.
