Nokia said that the company expects to cut costs further in the wake of its latest quarterly report, which shows the company lost $1.7 billion amidst a 50% decline in smartphone sales. The company will announced cuts to its devices and services business units in the weeks to come. Nokia has already closed plants and reduced its head count by thousands of employees as it restructures its smartphone business around Microsoft's Windows Phone platform. The company also announced that its head of sales will leave the company in June as its sales department is reorganized. The company sold just 600,000 devices in the U.S. market during the first quarter of 2012. Nokia CEO Stephen Elop blamed fierce competition in the smartphone market, as well as lower average selling prices for its devices in emerging markets for contributing to the quarterly decline. The company sold a total of 70.8 million handsets around the world.
