Rumor mill entertains the option of Samsung buying Nokia

Wall Street Journal reports on market rumors that Samsung, of all companies, is preparing a bid for Nokia. Asked for comment, spokesmen for both companies have said they will not be interrupted on market speculation, but it is standard operating procedure.

Nokia's debt recently was downgraded on two levels, citing the tough transition period for Windows Nokia Phone. Suddenly, the company issued a profit warning also crashing stock price, and carry current market capitalization of $ 24 billion.

Samsung, by contrast, is out some popular gadgets like the Samsung S II Galaxy and Galaxy tab 10.1, so I see a good strategy setting where we look at this. Of course, Samsung will acquire all of Nokia's patents, which will demand easy to fight Apple, but Samsung's CEO has already said it will not be "legally problematic" as it is.

If Samsung is preparing to make an offer related to Nokia, would be for participating in the Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) risk, not the mobile phone division. The Finns are reportedly looking to spin off anyway, though CEO JKShin and said they had not considered a purchase NSN. Once again, it's all rumors and speculation, a source named. Eldar Murtazin already sold the division of Nokia mobile phones to Microsoft for 19 million not long ago, and later claimed that the Finns were asking $ 25 billion, while CEO Stephen Elop called the rumors "baseless."

Who knows, it might be brewing something about Nokia, after all, and all these rumors may be part of a diversion plan, said the conspiracy theorist. The haste with which they move from Nokia to WP7 was announced a year before actually going to produce anything of substance, and the profit warning that crashed the price of the further actions are in his favor.
