(Reuters) - Microsoft Corp <MSFT.O> said it would cut about 2,850 more jobs over the next 12 months, taking its total planned job cuts to up to 4,700, or about 4 percent of its workforce.
The company said in May it would cut 1,850 jobs in its smartphone business, most of them in Finland.
Microsoft bought Finland-based handset maker Nokia in 2014 in an ill-fated attempt to take on market leaders Apple Inc <AAPL.O> and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd <005930.KS>.
Chief Executive Satya Nadella, who took the helm just two months before the deal closed, has since focused on restructuring the struggling phone business.
