Nokia noted declining revenues and overall unit sales in handsets, but also improving operating profits -- cross currents that point to a company still doing quite a lot of cost cutting to right-size itself. And in its earnings statement, Nokia added one more detail indicating that this cutting exercise will continue to be played out in the quarters ahead: up to 440 jobs will be cut in its mobile phones division -- that is, the legacy part of its devices business that does not include smartphones.
