Rumor: Microsoft Buying Nokia for 19 Billion Dollars

Internet is abuzz with stories of probable Microsoft-Nokia buyout – though no one has concrete information or say the official source confirming the development.

It all started when Eldar Mirtazin, a Russian blogger who is said to have deep contacts in Nokia, tweeted about a software company and phone manufacturer deal":


BGR, afterwards, did a story and said that software company in question is Microsoft while the phone vendor is Nokia. BGR’s information was derived from Eldar’s tweet as well based on his previous record of breaking Microsoft-Nokia news.

Neither Nokia nor Microsoft has confirmed the new so far.

In fact, Nokia’s spokesman Mark Squires tweeted this: “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.”

    No no no. If I was an investor in Nokia, I would have been very worried. Microsoft should stick to software.

  • Microsft and Nokia, i hate both companies LOL :D

  • Nokia is worth $400 billion +/-
    $19 billion is very small part of Nokia.
