Microsoft will complete its Nokia Devices and Services division acquisition on April 25

It’s been a long time coming, but Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of the Nokia Devices and Services division will be wrapped up this Friday – April 25.

As Microsoft notes on its official blog, it has now “completed the steps necessary to finalize” the deal, just a couple of weeks after the $7.2 billion acquisition gained approval in China.

Moreover, this latest announcement confirms that Microsoft will now manage the Nokia.com domain and related social media sites “
for the benefit of both companies and our customers”, though this may only be for “up to a year”. And the news also sees a little back-pedaling – Microsoft will no longer be acquiring Nokia’s Korean manufacturing facility, contrary to its previously-announced intentions.
