Nokia’s Communications Director denies Microsoft purchase rumours


Mark Squires, Nokia’s Communication Director has taken the unusual step of poopooing Eldar Murtazin’s claim that Microsoft and Nokia would start purchase talks next week.

Nokia’s share price seems largely unaffected by the rumour, moving less than a percent either way on the news, suggesting most of the financial community did not believe Eldar also.

While Nokia and Microsoft have always denied since their February deal that any purchase is in the offing, Eldar has a reputation of being pretty accurate when it comes to Nokia, so we ourselves will not be so eager to dismiss this rumour.
