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.

Pathologically. ;-)

MeeGo is no more, Intel having transitioned it on to something called Tizen (I trust they're using random name generators here). But Tizen is descended from the Moblin-side branch of MeeGo, not the Maemo-side branch, so Nokia wouldn't touch Tizen. Though Nokia could probably just roll Maemo-side MeeGo into a new mobile OS called Miezo. Or whatever. [Edit: zima points out above they actually called it "Meltemi". You can't make these things up.]

I get dizzy just thinking about it.
