The closure of this business also means handing out pink slips to employees who are working for this unit across the US, Finland and the UK. To start the process, Nokia has already invited employee representatives of Nokia Technologies in Finland to cooperation negotiations.

Nokia's development into VR camera hardware was only launched previous year, as the company attempted to create future growth opportunities beyond its bread and butter network and telecoms business.

Nokia describes the plan as a strategy to sharpen the focus of Nokia Technologies in regards to digital health, and accelerate growth in that market, while optimising investments in virtual reality (VR).
