CtechCN is reporting that “microblogging users” @monkeybigtreasure (priceless) shared pics of the Nokia device, claiming it is a smartwatch. It's interesting, but we have our doubts.
Samsung and Apple were in legal wranglings with one another? Yeah, we almost forgot, too. They’re still suing each other across the globe, but a recent revelation that Samsung executives may have been privy to the Apple-Nokia agreement is a big problem -- for both Apple and Samsung.
Nokia and their Android aspirations, confirming they had a few Android Lumia smartphone prototypes in the works. Today though news has arrived that they weren't just working on a couple of prototypes, but actually have over 10,000 Android smartphones codenamed "Mountain View" already built. Which was set to be a budget-friendly Android smartphone and a plan B for if (when) Windows Phone didn't pan out.
Nokia smartphones running Android were a thing, at least behind closed doors with Nokia engineers, well before Microsoft bought them out. As the days pass and we can all stop dreaming about a Nokia Lumia smartphone running Android, news today is stating the company was dabbling with Android, but we all know now that it will never happen.
Nokia, and instead opted to buy the company outright, the dream of a Nokia Android smartphone died. Don't be sad though, because one ex CEO has a team of Nokia defectors and aims to create a new Nokia-like company with the best OS around. That being Android of course.
Microsoft and Nokia aren't doing so great in the mobile space. Although, Microsoft looks to change that with their recent acquisition and buyout of Nokia. They'll soon be taking the same approach as Apple and now Google, by having their own hardware company.

Nokia has announced its decision to sell its Devices & Service business to Microsoft, practically giving Microsoft the ability to make its own devices and put the fate of its mobile devices in its own hands.
Nokia has announced the new Nokia Lumia 1020, the company's first 41 megapixel PureView smartphone running on Windows Phone 8. Yes, a 41 MP camera all on a smartphone that is basically as thin as everything else available today. Our friends and sister site SlashGear have more details, but our first thought was where's a 41 megapixel cameraphone for Android? And do we even need one?
