Is the rumoured purchase of Nokia’s smartphone division by MS really bogus?

Flattr this!

There are a numerous articles which are focused on Stephen Elop’s answer to the question regarding rumoured purchase of Nokia smartphone division by MS. All of them comments that Elop has marked this rumour as a bogus.

But… if you read his answer carefully, he stated folllowings:

“As we’ve described it before, the rumors are baseless, and some people who seem to enjoy generating rumors are running out of fresh material, so it seems to have come up again. I have nothing else to say.”

It simple means Eldar Murtazin has gained such (older) materials from Nokia where this idea is really described? It might be only one of possible options, but as many of us know, options has some conditions. And real sales of new Nokia’s WP phones are still so far from announced plans ;-( So, I would not be surprised if this current rumour happens in the future…
