It looks as though Nokia is working on something Linux-related and while it could be Android and it could be something else, we’re curious nonetheless. Gizmodo is reporting that Nokia has posted a new job listing on its LinkedIn page, seeking a principle software engineer whose job description will be to “oversee the development of embedded Linux device software and hardware drivers for our exciting new products.” Hmm.
Of course Android is based on the Linux kernel, but jumping automatically to the conclusion that Nokia is about to dip its toes in the Android market would be folly. Still, the HTC 8X’s full name was HTC Windows Phone 8X. Did Microsoft forsake Nokia for a former Android die-hard?
