    That's bad luck for any of the 18000. Best of luck to them....

    Interestingly enough the 500 Designers/Engineers who created the Nokia X design were the first to be announced yesterday.....

    Well they targeted a Design and R&D Center in Finland that employed 500 and another 500 from a production center in Finland, both were attached to the Nokia X cancellation...
