Find “Nokia”, Replace “Microsoft Mobile”

Nokia partnered with Microsoft and delivered Lumia device to its customers. Lumia smartphone comes with windows mobile operating system. Back in September 2013 Microsoft acquired Nokia mobile unit for $7.2 billion. This deal will be completed before end of April 2014 and Microsoft is busy sending out letters for its suppliers and customers.


In and leaked email Microsoft revealed that Nokia Oy will called as Microsoft Mobile Oy (Oy is like Ltd in Finland). Microsoft also confirmed that current terms and conditions with the Nokia’s device and service will not change.

If you are a Nokia fan it’s a heart breaking news for you.
