More on Nokia: A job posting from the company's Silicon Valley office for an engineer with embedded Linux expertise has fueled speculation Nokia is working on an Android phone, given Android is based on Linux. However, Nokia has a history of working on other embedded Linux platforms, such as MeeGo and the recently-scrapped Meltemi. Back in July, chairman Risto Siilasmaa talked of having a "contingency plan" in the event Windows Phone 8 sales disappoint - many took that to mean Android. Update: Nokia says the job listing is related to its Here mapping platform.
