PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This rumour is not new, nor is it particularly earth-shattering. However, with Windows Phone 7 failing to make a dent in the market place, and Nokia's Lumia 800 not making huge waves either, the rumour's been taken out of the shed again: Microsoft is supposedly acquiring Nokia's smartphone division later this year. Stephen Elop will resign from Nokia shortly afterwards.

As a former Nokia employee is with some sadness I see this happening in case the rumor is true.

Tomi has mentioned in his blog that he had heard of such rumors from Danske Bank. He even went as far to state that the sale might be completed by spring this year. Even now, Nokia is hunting buyers for Vertu.

I like Nokia for the simple reason that their call quality and reception is the best in the market. I hate to think that I will have to resort to a Sony or a Motorola to get anything similar.
