Microsoft makes tablets while Nokia makes cuts

Podcast - 20th June 2012

This week's mobile industry news podcast starts with two very different stories from Nokia and Microsoft: one is announcing closures, the other is expanding its manufacturing.

The ongoing reorganisation at Nokia will see another 10,000 people leaving and two factories closing. Meanwhile Microsoft has revealed Surface, a new range of devices that aim to challenge the iPad's dominance of the tablet market. We also find time to talk about roaming tariffs, mobile money, intelligent vending machines and a handful of recent mobile-related acquisitions.
