Microsoft has confirmed that it will complete its acquisition of Nokia's mobile phone business this Friday, expanding the reach of the Windows Phone operating system.

The announcement comes after months of work to finalise the deal, which was originally announced last September. Microsoft has since announced a new chief executive, Satya Nadella, and updated its Windows platform on both mobile and desktop devices.
