Specifically, Murtazin tweeted, “One small software company decided last week that they could spent 19 bln USD to buy a part of small phone vendor. Thats it.”
We realize the absurdity of citing that tweet, but a lot of people have been speculating about this deal, so we thought we’d bring it to your attention.

He had been previously reporting that Microsoft was meeting with Nokia about buying its phone division.
