I suppose this is a natural evolution from "Nokia Oy Vey"... now it's just "Nokia Oy".
this doesn't mean that NOKIA brand will dissapear from phones like the picture suggests. Not so long ago Ricoh bought Pentax camera division. Cameras that are now made by Ricoh imaging are still branded Pentax. I think Microsoft won't shoot a winning (or at least promissing) horse and keep nokia branding. At least I hope so.
tomakali, 21 Apr 2014Nokia will exist "inside" your windows phone as "Here" and many other inte... moreBro, am not talking about a app in a windows phone that will remind us that nokia exist..Nokia's greatest power was feature phone and most of feature phone does not have here maps..As i belong to India and here in terms of maps people knows only google maps they even don't know what is here maps so how they will be able to recognise Nokia exist inside their phone.....and a phone is always recognise by their Manufacturer name an then OS not by an app..Hope you got my point..Now i am in confusion should I purchase a last Nokia Lumia or not..its better to move out rather than purchasing a microsoft windows phone or stick with Nokia X6
AnonD-78634, 21 Apr 2014Oh god..No Nokia no windows phone atleast i will be purchasing..The name on which many people ... moreNokia will exist "inside" your windows phone as "Here" and many other intelligent apps which will make WP even more better.
Since Nokia hardware is being renamed to Microsoft there is not going to be any degrade in the Nokia quality hardware. BTW Microsoft's surface hardware is more advanced than Nokia hardware. the one thing thats going to be compromised is the "brand Nokia"
Oh god..No Nokia no windows phone atleast i will be purchasing..The name on which many people around the world trust is going to be fade..I dont think that is there any Mobile person in the world who have not used/touch a Nokia phone in his entire life..Yes Nokia will be working as an independent company but No matter what Nokia is doing now if they are not making things which people can feel in day to day use for them Nokia is dead..I beleive in future Nokia will be making some devices which will again connect people..
The King of Mobile Phone will return to the arena and claim its throne back.
For those who are crying NOKIA NOKIA what have you done to improve the market share of Nokia phones?? You cry Nokia here and you are holding cheap overspecd Samsung phones... I have Lumia 720 & I was planning to buy 1520 next month but I will wait and see what Microsoft lumias look like and what they can offer
Waiting for Microsoft Lumia it will be a killer, Nokia is dead because they failed to develop in time.they did me a favour for not joining Android I don't where I would have gone because I will never use an Android powered phone
G.M.301, 21 Apr 2014no one buy ms mobile in pakistan.normal man just like nokia

AFAIK, Oyj is just a acquiring division of MS. Remember Skype is also named Oyj in the first place then Microsoft decided to retain tge Skype name. Nokia will still be there. Its still a brand that sells.
Let's face it. If it weren't for the effort that nokia put into Windows Phones (thanks to that Elop guy) they would not even be having any market share right now. Im not gonna buy windows because of the OS. Im gonna get a wp because its a nokia branded one.
