Microsoft to buy Nokia Phone Unit: Rumor

Here is some more Nokia news for today. Earlier we reported that Nokia is dropping the Ovi brand and is rumored to power Bing Maps. Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin reports today that Nokia and Microsoft will start negotiations on the sale of the Nokia Phone business. This sounds dramatic and maybe a bit far fetched, but Eldar Murtazin (via Unwired Review) has an amazing track record when it comes to predict Nokia related developments. He also for instance reported on the demise of the Ovi brand a week ago.

Still, does it make sense for Microsoft to own Nokia's phone business? Nokia is big in low-end phones. This big aspect of the Nokia mobile unit totally would not fit to Microsoft. The Windows company has to do something dramatic to make Windows Phones get closer to Google and Apple. To acquire Nokia takes a competitor out, but if this can be turned into a competitive advantage against Google and Apple would be a challenge.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
