Nokia got pwned: Microsoft announced it has acquired Nokia’s handset business for €5.44 billion (around $7.2 billion) although, because of cash and capital adjustments over the 8 months since the transaction was first announced, the final price may end up being slightly higher. Nokia will make that clear next week. Their earnings report is scheduled for April 29. Microsoft now owns the Lumia, Asha and Nokia X brands of phones. It can keep using the Nokia brand for 10 years. Nokia can’t use its own name on mobile devices until after December 31, 2015. Meanwhile, Nokia retains its networking infrastructure arm, the HERE mapping division and Advanced Technologies which does research and licensing.
