We have heard rumors previously that Microsoft were considering buying Nokia’s smartphone business, although these rumors have been denied by both Microsoft and Nokia.

Steve Balmer, Andy Lees and Stephen Elop, Kai Ostamo will meet in Las Vegas to finalize agreement about Nokia smartphone unit. Bye Nokia
If Nokia did sell its smartphone business to Microsoft, it would leave the company with its other mobile phones, and considering the recent deal for Windows Phone devices, which looks like it may be doing Nokia some good it wouldn’t be the smartest move for them.
