    After acquiring Nokia's phone business for $7.2 billion two years ago, Microsoft wrote off $7.6 billion last year and cut 7,800 jobs to refocus its phone efforts.

    Microsoft's Lumia and Windows Phone strategy has failed as both sales and Windows Phone market share have declined since the tech giant's mobile restructuring last year.

    It is believed that the multinational technology company has been working on a 'plan B' if Nokia wasn't successful with Windows Phone.
