Microsoft and Nokia were recently in advanced negotiations about a possible purchase deal, but the negotiations ultimately broke down on the topic of price, according to reports. Little is known about the talks; anonymous sources say they happened as recently as this month and focused on Nokia’s device business. The same sources also say that they are unlikely to be revived, no matter how synergistic such an acquisition might be. After all, Nokia chose Microsoft’s Windows Phone to power its smartphones.
