Microsoft's planned acquisition of Nokia has been approved by the US Department of Justice and the FTC. With both regulatory agencies approving of the deal, Microsoft needs only the go-ahead from the European Union to make the deal official. Nokia shareholders have already voted in favor of selling its handset division for $7.2 billion dollars. The deal will see the company maintain its networking operations but sell smartphone facilities, patents, and workforce to Microsoft.source: FTC (PDF), via: The Verge
