Nokia brand is more appealing. It's recognized by BILLION of people around the word.
Here we go again for the 100th time; M$ buys a great product/technology and starts digging its grave already. Brand names MEAN A LOT, many of them have been sold and bought over for centuries but haven't been changed because of the prestige and customer loyalty, now these idiots want to take down Nokia and brand the product with one of the most hated names in the industry.
honestly I think its a huge turn of this Microsoft
branding. especially on the front panel.
Aadrian, 11 Sep 2014I think more people will do the same. Nokia isn't so big in the US, but it still is in Europe ... moreVery very good comment. Totally agree with you. I love Nokia and I was buyed my lumia 920 because of the brand Nokia,not microsoft. Now,I'm tinking for Sony or Apple
Nobody cares about the name. It's Microsoft so name it like that! Just give us more details!
For us maybe nokia means something but for kids (10-15 YO) which are potential buyers don't know how awsome nokia was they just remember xpress music 5800 which was crap... So in that case I understand why they want to loose the name nokia.

charlie Rokxxx, 11 Sep 2014No Nokia NAme .I don't Buy Windows ..:/ bcoz Nokia Is Brand Nokia forever :(I think more people will do the same. Nokia isn't so big in the US, but it still is in Europe and other parts of the world. So making it Microsoft only might raise popularity of WP in the US, just as Microsoft wants, but the other continents where Nokia still is a big player, will not like the Microsoft branding and won't buy their phones. Therefore, the raise of popularity in the US will eventually cause less populairity overall, cause of the drop of sales in the rest of the world.
Now people might say "it's stupid to only buy something because of the name" and I totally agree. But it is the way it works in the world we live in, at least for a fair share of sales. Apple sells millions of iPhones because of the brand name only. Once you have an established brand name, it's all ok, but if you don't have that... Now Microsoft has an established name, for software. Not for phones. But we will see how it turns out.
charlie Rokxxx, 11 Sep 2014No Nokia NAme .I don't Buy Windows ..:/ bcoz Nokia Is Brand Nokia forever :(Then you should get the Palm pre Brand.
