Nonsense idea.This will chase away the Nokia admirer from buying Nokia by Microsoft phones.Microsoft own Nokia and everybody know that but it is needless to push the Microsoft branding in the smartphone industry through modifying already popular Nokia branding.
I believe the name Nokia should be available at any cost. No one is gonna buy a phone named Microsoft. Nokia is a legendary company and if MS wants to sell their windows phones, brand Nokia should be there....
i like microsoft, i like windows phone 8.1 a lot. personally i own a htc one, but one of my friends have nokia lumia 930 and i love it. if wp 8.1 will have a file manager, i will buy it for sure. the internet browser speed is phenomenal on lumia 930
They weren't supposed to be able to use the Nokia brand on smartphones, but now they can. Who cares about respecting the contracts, if this news is legit...
Let Nokia remain the brand name at the front and maybe put "by Microsoft" or "Microsoft" only at the back "i wouldn't like to see a big banner name at the front of my phone, we have already seen big names like Samsung, Motorola!
i think it wld b better if the nokia branding is on the
front and 'by microsoft' on the back in smaller fonts
AnonD-80526, 29 Jun 2014This makes me feel very sad as I'm a Nokia loyalist. When I came to know that according to the... moreThat is ridiculous. Go and buy the thousands and thousands of Android phones out there. Let Nokia be Windows Phone which according to me, is best OS for my need right now or buy Nokia X2. There are already enough Androids out there....
This makes me feel very sad as I'm a Nokia loyalist. When I came to know that according to the deal there is scope for Nokia to rebuild as mobile manufacturing brand of its own. So I was patiently expecting one day there will be a pure android phone from Nokia and I will buy it. But now all my dreams were spoiled and I feel as if my heart is broken into pieces as anyone feel when someone's lover has cheated on him.:'(
You would think change had come at MS with Balmer being fired. It seems like its more of the same at Microsoft.
Here is an idea MS, how about you let Nokia operate as a child company making the brand of phones they are. Nokia by MS is in NO WAY appealing. Simply because you've put by MS. Just leave it as Nokia.
we already see eMachines by Acer
soon we'll see Nokia by Microsoft....Motorolla by Lenovo
It seems that were going to see a Nokia tablet soon with Windows pro OS. Interesting..
this whoring the brand nokia, whats sad about it, if they dont get money for that
