Things could be changing big time at Nokia. Rumors of a Microsoft buyout of the mobile phone division of the company have been started by Eldar Murtazin who says that a deal could be completed by the end of the year and would cost the software company $30 billion. As we reported, Microsoft recently spent $8.5 billion to buy VoIP company Skype.
Considering that Murtazin had correctly predicted that Nokia would turn to Windows Phone 7 to replace Symbian back in December, there could be some truth to this speculation. However, Mark Squires, Nokia’s UK Comm Director, has rejected Murtazin's comments by tweeting that "We typically don't comment on rumors. But we have to say that Eldar's rumors are getting obviously less accurate with every passing moment."
