Nokia has always been keen to crush talk of a tie-up with either Google or Microsoft, maintaining that its phones will never come loaded with a third party operating system.
However, dynamite new info about a potential hook up between Nokia and Microsoft has just surfaced, with renowned Russian mobile watcher Eldar Murtazin claiming that Espoo and Redmond are already in talks to bring Windows Phone 7 to Nokia phones.
What’s more it seems Nokia, now run by former Microsoft man Stephen Elop, initiated the negotiations. Murtazin is well-regarded for his impeccable inside sources, with Nokia known to be infuriated with his breezy access to a slew of unannounced phones and killer mobile gossip.
With Symbian reeling and MeeGo still not on any devices, such a hook-up is no longer far-fetched. With ties between both companies getting tighter thanks to deeper software integration, this is a tech marriage that could well happen in 2011.
