Nokia Lumia 730 and 830 handsets and all the others already in the market might be the last to have the Nokia brand name/logo on them as Microsoft moves to rebrand Nokia to Microsoft Lumia as early as next week.
According to a message on Nokia France Facebook page the firm will in the next coming weeks rebrand the Nokia Lumia range to Microsoft Lumia.
“In the coming days, you will receive a message from Facebook on the renaming of this page. We are about to become “Microsoft Lumia”! -Stay tuned to learn more soon…;”
In April, Microsoft completed the acquisition of Nokia’s device business for $7 billion and the firm had began moving it’s businesses into one instead of using the Nokia name. The Nokia name dropping may also help Microsoft make it simpler and less confusing like it’s today.
Nokia’s Smart Devices business unit which included the award winning Lumia brand and products is now fully owned by Microsoft including its long-term patent licensing agreement with Qualcomm among other products. Nokia’s patents have also been moved over to Microsoft for a ten year license and HERE maps for a four year licence.
