A Nokia job listing [since taken down] has been discovered seeking a Senior Engineer with Linux expertise, rather than Windows Phone experience, this leading the Android masses to have a freak-out-festival about the possibilities of a Google OS Nokia device. At the moment its a nearly all-Microsoft party at Nokia with the latter shaking hands heavily with the former for the launch of Windows Phone 8 with devices like the Nokia Lumia 920, a hero for the operating system. With a Linux expert on their team, (not that Nokia doesnt already have engineers with such expertise), it would appear that Nokia is attempting to keep their ties with Android at least a possible future plan but clues are dubious at best.
Its not that we dont think Nokia would ever make an attempt and creating an Android phone, its just that one single job posting does not a Nexus make. Back in May of 2011 there was a single prediction from super stealth inside Eldar Murtazin which said that if Microsoft didnt outright purchase Nokia inside 2012, theyd toss out ex-Microsoft executive Stephen Elop from the CEO spot and place former Nokia smartphone chief Anssi Vanjoki back on top.

did anyone think this is about reverse engineering competition phones?
some of us like capitalism...while we still have it

Heh; I’m not alone! You’re right, it’s a rock. I’ve run over it with the farm tractor 2-3x, and it just keeps on ticking.
