Goodbye Nokia, Hello Microsoft Lumia
Nokia have been the mobile phone name synonymous with quality and reliability (mostly). However we have now officially seen the last Nokia branded smartphone. Microsoft have continued their acquisition tidy up of the Nokia phone business by announcing all future Nokia Lumia’s will be called Windows Lumia’s.
Will this be a smart move for Microsoft? Tuula Rytilä, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Phones at Microsoft suggests not.
This is a very exciting time for us and for Lumia products. You might have seen that in the last couple of months, we have already made some name changes to our apps to better reflect that these apps now come from Microsoft.
Our global and local websites are going through a transition as we speak and in the coming days our social channels will get a new name too – they will be called Microsoft Lumia. We would like to invite our Lumia fans to continue to follow us and always be up to speed with the latest device news on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
There is also discussions of a new Microsoft Lumia coming soon.
I wouldn’t comment on future product announcements, but what I can say is that that we are looking forward to unveiling a Microsoft Lumia device soon. This is of course a natural progression as all devices that once came from Nokia now come from Microsoft.
And, the Lumia promise of great phone experiences will remain the same as our customers have come to know and love. What’s more, Lumia phones will also showcase the best of Microsoft’s services such as Office, OneDrive, Skype and Bing to help customers with their work and personal lives.
You can see more of Tuula’s conversation on the Nokia Website… Just be quick as that may change soon 🙂
