Nokia Pulls Manufacturing Out of Germany

I had several thoughts about this article, but the bottom line is that I am not surprised: Nokia to close Germany plant, lay off 2,300

Nokia further said that renewing the site was not an option, as doing so would require additional investments that would not result in manufacturing in Bochum being globally competitive.
Nokia follows BenQ and Motorola in exiting mobile phone manufacturing in Germany

The article says they are moving production "elsewhere in Europe", so it will go to Eastern Europe for a while before finally settling in Asia, like everything else.
