News out of Finland has put Samsung as the latest potential buyer of ailing mobile vendor Nokia, shifting focus from Microsoft, which was also rumoured to be tabling a bid for the company.
Samsung will become the world’s largest smartphone vendor in the third quarter of 2011, replacing beleaguered mobile manufacturer Nokia, which has held top position for the past fourteen years, according to Nomura.
Not being an expert in the Mobile space I do find the rumours nevertheless exciting. Locally in Germany I started working with Samsung a few months ago to drive together Android- (and of course IBM-based) Mobile (Social Business) Solutions in the B2B space. Will be interesting to see what happens the next weeks and months. Would of course love to see Nokia going Android and dropping this other stuff.
