I love to surf the internet and the main reason being is the knowledge I get from posts such as this.I have read several blogs on this subject, this being my research topic.Thanks
Too bad Nokia didn't try harder with Meego. That was a cool OS. Maybe it wouldn't have saved Nokia, but it seemed worth a shot.
It guess it makes sense to drop Nokia from the branding, to make it clear that these phones are all part of the same ecosystem as the rest of Windows/Microsoft. But it's sad to think that the Nokia name is worth so little in today's mobile phone world.
It does seem confusing to have no distinction between the name of the mobile OS and the desktop OS. The iOS name services nicely to make it clear that it's an Apple system, but not the same thing as OS X.
Already, when one searches for help with Windows Phone issues, you get referred to a lot of guides and support pages that are for Window 8 on the desktop. Supper annoying. Doesn't anyone ever think about what will happen when you give two different things the same name and then people try to do internet searches on it? I think the WP7, WP8 type branding was better.
That seems like a very silly branding idea, but they probably need all the help they can get.

I just want a big ms logo on many lumia that also act as notification light. Nokia can start making apps.and stuff like that. They will earn more than they did with phones
Here in the Philippines, Cherry Mobile have a Windows OS with 4" screen, quad-core cpu, 5mp rear camera and vga on the front, in just 2999Php or 68 US$.. how cheap is that..
For those who don't know these "Go go" phones are just clones of other brands, they use other brands' atributes in their devices and sell them for cheap mainly in China. Wouldn't be surprised if this "Windows" device came with Android same as iPhone clones.
As it regards dropping "phone" i think it's better. So we can say a "Windows" phone instead of a "Windows Phone" phone ;p
that's the most uninteresting name for a phone! Get creative for once!
