Rumours. They’re everywhere in the mobile industry. But, when Eldar Murtazin is posting them, they’re worth a read. Eldar is well connected and is the man behind Mobile Review. Last year he correctly predicted that Nokia would be taking on Windows Phone as an OS and an entire line of devices would appear. Just before Mobile World Congress we all found out how true that was, with Microsoft apparently handing over more than $1 billion to “promote and develop Windows-based handsets” from Nokia.
These new rumours state that Microsoft are now preparing to buy the entire mobile devision of Nokia. Yes, the whole shooting match. That includes dumb phones and smartphones alike – all for $30 billion.
