WTF Rumor: Meizu + Nokia Phone

First, the legit news. Haier and Meizu are cooperating on controlling appliances via phone.

Weibo:

Now the weird rumor …

The rumor originates here, with a “retweet” of a Weibo.

Weibo:

MeizuNokiaWeibo02

MeizuNokiaWeibo02b

Another Weibo picks it up, and is also “retweeted”:

MeizuNokiaWeibo03

And then PadNews sends out a Weibo:

MeizuNokiaWeibo01

MeizuNokiaWeibo01b

MeizuNokiaWeibo01c

Is any of this true?

Well, Meizu has an announcement on January 28:

But I think it has more to do with Haier than any possible hookup with Nokia.

Still, the thought of Nokia phones via Meizu being sold outside of China is huge. It would certainly blunt the ambitions of Xiaomi.

    I don’t think Nokia can reenter the smartphones business so soon after Microsoft bought its handset business
