[qi:050] Nokia (s NOK), the corporate parent of Symbian, has sold its Symbian Professional Services business to consulting giant Accenture (s ACN), the company said today. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but I imagine its value was trivial, given that Symbian is desperately trying to make itself over as an open-source entity and reinvent its platform. As part of the deal, nearly 165 engineers and professionals in the UK, South Korea and Australia will join Accenture. These folks help out chip manufacturers, handset makers and phone companies on issues relating to Symbian. I hope you get a chance to read my views on Nokia and what is wrong with that company.
