Accenture Acquires a Phone Concern From Nokia

Accenture, the technology consulting firm, agreed to buy a Nokia business that advises and provides services for cellphone makers using the Symbian operating system, the companies said Friday. The unit helps phone manufacturers make the operating system work with their products, and aids chip makers and carriers. Terms were not disclosed. The deal adds 165 employees to Accenture’s organization and lets the company expand a business that provides consulting services related to mobile operating systems. Symbian is the world’s most popular software running more advanced cellphones, and is used on more than 250 million handsets.

Symbian, managed by the Symbian Foundation of London, competes with Microsoft, Research In Motion and Apple in making software for phones that allow users to access the Web, check e-mail, play music and transmit video clips. The deal is expected to close by the end of the third quarter.
