Is there a Nokia Android device coming?

Is there a Nokia Android device coming? According to an ad on LinkedIn, Nokia is searching for an experienced senior software engineer with Linux experience.
Additionally, the ad claims the new employee will be working in a "startup environment" working on "exciting new products" for "future mobile phone technology."

Some sites have taken that to mean that Nokia may be looking to complement its Windows Phone lineup with Android devices, or some other Linux-based OS.

Nokia had been working on the Linux-based MeeGo before its deal with Microsoft, and was also working on "Meltemi" but the industry expected that OS was killed off, as well.

Although the company continues to struggle, there was some positive news, with Windows Phone 8 devices leading to a recent boost in sales.
