Submission + - Nokia May be Planning an Android Smartphone (tomshardware.com)

SternisheFan writes: From TomsHardware.com;
    Despite Nokia's close relationship with Microsoft due to the former's support for Windows Phone 8 and arlier versions of the OS, the Finnish firm could be planning an Android-powered smartphone.

The company recently posted ajob advertisement on LinkedIn seeking aLinux expert to work within a "start-up environment." The ad makes mention of "exciting new products" and "mobile phone technology".

The posting, which was for unknown reasons made inactive and inaccessible on Friday, was entitled "Principal Software Engineer, Embedded Linux Middleware."

Should the advert be referring to another project other than an Android device, one possibility is that Nokia is working onits own Maps app — or other general applications — for Google's platform.
