Accenture Inks Symbian Development for Nokia

Following Nokia’s announcement in February to adopt Windows Phone, the Finnish firm also plans to outsource the development and support of the Symbian software to Accenture.

And now, the two companies finally inked the outsourcing agreement in which Accenture will provide development and support of the Symbian platform for Nokia through 2016. Approximately 2,800 Nokia employees in China, Finland, India, UK, and the US will transfer to Accenture once the deal is closed come October this year.

Though Nokia will consider Windows Phone as its primary smartphone strategy while continue developing the MeeGo platform, the phone maker just announced recently its plans to ship up to 10 new Symbian smartphones over the next 12 months.
