Sliding phone sales keep Nokia in Q1 loss

. The Nokia headquarters building in Keilaniemi, Espoo, Finland, displays a banner saying they are moving Friday April 25, 2014. Nokia headquarters are "On the move" to join Nokia Solutions and Networks' headquarters in Karakallio, Espoo. Nokia said Friday it has completed the 5.44 billion-euro ($7.5 billion) sale of its troubled cellphone and services division to Microsoft Corp., ending a chapter in the former world leading cellphone maker's history that began with paper making in 1865. The closure of the deal, which includes a license to a portfolio of Nokia patents to Microsoft Corp., follows delays in global regulatory approvals, and ends the production of mobile phones by the Finnish company, which had led the field for more than a decade, peaking with a 40-percent global market share in 2008.
