Nokia and Accenture have entered into an agreement for Accenture to acquire Nokia's Symbian Professional Services unit responsible for Symbian OS customer engineering and customer support.
The Nokia Symbian Professional Services unit provides engineering consulting and product development services on a global basis to mobile phone manufacturers, as well as chip manufacturers and mobile operators.
Approximately 165 people will transfer to Accenture as a result of the agreement.
Via this Nokia announcement.

I am not sure if the sale of Symbian Professional Services group has any meaning for the future of Symbian. Remember the rumor about Nokia making an Android phone earlier this month. Nokia has of course dismissed this rumor.
