Recent rumors have Microsoft, Samsung, and possibly a few other companies as potential acquirers of Nokia. Buying Nokia would be an expensive proposition, costing a buyer many billions of dollars. Buying Nokia, which still sells more handsets than any other OEM, would also be subject to regulatory scrutiny. CEO of Nokia, Stephen Elop, is currently at the Open Mobile Summit. In one particular Q&A session, he debunks all rumors that Nokia is for sale. As on attendee reports:
Nokia Q&A at #OpenMobile: @selop says Nokia is not for sale to @BenWood
However, take this comment with a grain of salt. CEOs tend to be quiet about potential acquisitions as to not affect stock prices and staff and customer moral.
