Nokia to release Android tablet, phone next year? Eldar Murtazin, the Russian tech blogger famous for getting early access to devices, has tweeted this morning that Nokia is still in negotiations that will eventually lead to a partnership with Google's Android.
Says the tweet:

According to my sources Nokia in negotiation with Google as well. First Nokia Android devices for 2012. Turnover. No own OS platform


Nokia CEO Stephen Elop announced this morning that Nokia smartphones would now run the Windows Phone 7 operating system, a huge move for Microsoft which instantly gains a worldwide footprint, but a tough admission from Nokia that they have been slow on innovating in the burgeoning smartphone market.

Elop says the partnership will "jointly create market-leading mobile products and services designed to offer consumers, operators and developers unrivalled choice and opportunity."

It dies a slow death; forgotten by everyone except those dumb enough to buy a device with it installed and those who hack said devices to install Android.
