jones_supa (887896) writes "Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer met with Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen and Finance Minister Jutta Urpilainen on Wednesday in Helsinki. The meeting took place at the House of Parliament, where the premier was officiating at the opening of the autumn session. 'We’re entirely committed and very fired up by the acquisition of the Devices and Services division of Nokia,' Ballmer told Yle. 'We’ve had great meetings with the folks we hope will be our new teams after the deal closes in Espoo, in Tampere, in Salo, in Oulu and we’re very excited to have Finland as the centre of all phone development at Microsoft.' Also taking part in the Helsinki meeting were outgoing Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and the company’s board chair, Risto Siilasmaa."
