aktaruzzaman, 24 Apr 2014that means only future Lumia will be named microsoft... and nokia can't make higher configurat... moreNokia will NOT make any phones now. They have sold all their Design team, manufacturing plants and entire phone producing division to Microsoft.
Microsoft will keep producing Asha phones with Nokia branding. Lumia phones will be sold under Lumia branding (No nokia). So from May 2014 onwards any Asha/Lumia/X/XL phone coming out will be made by Microsoft only!
listen, 24 Apr 2014No they only bought the Lumia division Nokia is more worth than a few billions dollars Microsoft bought all of Nokia's Device & services division (Includes all Phone design & manufacturing). They have permission to use Nokia brand on Asha series phone. However Lumia series will not have any Nokia branding but will be sold as LUMIA - Microsoft branding.

I haven't got any update,i bought my phone last year december...i even restored my phone n i keep going on settings >phoneupdate switching off and on
Nokia need to use Asha in High End device, it's a beautiful OS in my opinion, just lacks the apps.
S40 6th edition was really a cool OS for feature phones. I still use a Nokia X2-01 as one of my backup phones and it's damn good. Wish to see some Qwerty phones with high configuration and S40 6th edition OS.
