“Nokia by Microsoft” Licensing Agreement, and Surface Brand to be Dropped for Lumia
Evleaks is reporting on his blog that Microsoft are in the final stages of a licencing agreement to use the name “Nokia by Microsoft” presumably on Lumia devices.
Evleaks, who is notorious on Twitter for leaking device names and photos, also says that the Surface line of Tablets by the Richmond company who recently acquired Nokia’s Devices and Services Division, will be dropped in favour of the Lumia name.
“This is pretty exciting: Microsoft is reportedly in the final stages of licensing the Nokia brand, for the purpose of calling the handsets “Nokia by Microsoft.” Furthermore, say goodbye to Surface, and hello to Lumia, as the tablet lineup faces brand streamlining.”
Sounds interesting. We will keep you posted on any developments.
