Microsoft Definitely Not Buying Nokia Or Any Parts Of It


You’ve probably heard of Russian mobile analyst Eldar Murtazin, who sometimes gets really big scoops but most of the time just says utter nonsense.

This time, he claimed that Microsoft would be buying Nokia’s smartphone business and use it to produce its own Windows Phones, dropping the Nokia brand. But just by looking at his first tweet, we can find something odd:

Yeah, only that Andy Lees isn’t President of Windows Phone anymore. And if you needed any further proof, Nokia UK has confirmed for Slashgear:

We’ve put these rumours to rest a long time ago. The focus for Nokia is on executing on our partnership around Windows Phone and growing the ecosystem, and each company has the tools they need to do so.

So, to say it again: Microsoft will not buy Nokia. That’s it.
