It isn’t too often that we cover financial rumors on wpsauce, because we know our readers want financial facts versus speculation. Now color us stunned at this rumor, but Samsung MAY BE loading it’s proverbial guns to shoot down Microsoft and fully purchase Nokia. Your mouth hit the floor yet? Good so did mine!
Nokia is in dire straits, that’s a fact. Despite it’s Lumia line and the idea of the Nokia 808 Pureview, sales have been lacklaster for the once king of the mobile industry. The current king, Samsung, now may want to purchase the troubled company above the price the company goes for now (about $18 billion versus the $11 billion the company goes for now). In lieu of the rumor, Nokia stock prices have gone up considerably.
If your mouth hasn’t dropped yet, it also seems that facebook is also interested in Nokia as well to fuel Zuckerberg’s plans for a facebook phone (and not the HTC chacha)
Think about that for a moment. Samsung and Nokia? Granted not many people think it’ll really happen, but consider the possibilities for Windows Phone if it did. You know, just saying.
