The realignment will cost Nokia Technologies up to 310 staff members, or 28 percent of the division's total headcount. As part of that process, Nokia has invited employee representatives from Finland to appear at "cooperation negotiations".

Nokia created the Ozo spherical camera to get into the virtual reality market without having to compete with head-mounted devices like the Oculus Rift.

McDonald's is testing out a McVegan burger in Finland
Sadly, if you're keen on trying it you'll have to catch a flight as the burger is only being trialled in Tampere in Finland. The fast food giant has launched the McVegan, a burger entirely vegetable-based with a soybean steak.

Nokia said that Nokia Technologies will sharpen its focus on digital health and accelerate the company's growth in that market.

The OZO ball boasts eight cameras and microphones that capture footage and for VR experiences. The camera, coming in at a steep $45,000, was launched in 2015 as the first product after the sale of the firm's handset business to Microsoft.

Smriti Irani promises 'char dham yatra' to BJP veterans in Amethi
Gandhi said that maximum suicides are taking place in the BJP-ruled states. "Complete my sentence, 'Na khaunga, Na khaney dunga". Though Irani lost to the Congress leader, she reduced his victory margin from around 3.70 lakh in 2009 to 1.07 lakh in 2014.

Nokia, whose main business is now telecoms network equipment, launched the camera previous year as the first device for its digital media business, one of its new hopes for future growth. Despite the halt, Nokia will continue to honor its commitments with existing customers.

However, there's little balm for the employees soon to be axed. At the same time Nokia Technologies says it will keep growing brand and technology licensing while leaving its patent licensing business untouched.
