So far this year, Microsoft being the most handsomest software company has been coming up in the news for many rumors and real activities. First the buzz was about Microsoft’s Windows phone 7 will be the new operating system for Nokia smartphones, then about Microsoft buying Skype which they eventually did for $8.5 billion, and recently on 24th May they revealed ‘Mango’ as new Windows phone mobile operating system. So this years seems to be a Microsoft’s happy year.
The most fuzzy rumor about Microsoft as of now is ‘Microsoft buying Nokia‘. There are ‘n’ number of sources which indicate a high probability of this deal. This rumor was originated by a Russian blogger back in 2010, who was even sued by Nokia. But today as I said this rumor is coming from many sources.
If at all Microsoft buys Nokia, this will gonna be the biggest deal of the year, as the numbers expected for this deal is more than $35 billion. And if we look at this deal from Nokia’s point of view, its gonna be a tremendous deal for them. Nokia anyways loosing its market share from 41 percent (last year) to 29 percent (March/April 2011). They also revealed that they are going to discontinue the OVI branding.
Lets wait and watch how this whole picture turns up. Stay tuned with us..
