Microsoft to Kill off Nokia and Windows Phone brands
LUMIA HERE TO STAY
After acquiring Nokia and it’s Lumia brand, Microsoft is planning to stop using the Nokia and Windows Phone brands soon according to some verified internal company documents obtained by GeeksOnGadgets . It partly says
“As part of our phased transition, we will drop the manufacturer name [Nokia] from product references during the Holiday campaign,”
We can also say bye to the Microsoft’s very own Windows Phone logo that we often see in promotions and commercials, instead it will be replaced with just Windows.
“Windows will take the place of Windows Phone, with Lumia for phone models”
The company’s latest commercials for the Lumia 930 don’t even mention Windows Phone at all. Now, Microsoft refers to Windows Phone just as Windows. HTC’s new One M8 for Windows also drops the Windows Phone name in favor of just Windows. Likewise, Microsoft’s latest Cortana, Lumia 530, Lumia 730, and Lumia 830 ads also fail to mention Windows Phone.
It’s logical for Microsoft to shave off all these unnecessary brands. The company also plans to combine all the version sof Windows RT and Windows Phone which is expected to debut in spring 2015. All this is part of Microsoft’s vision for Windows with universal apps across phone, PC, and Xbox.
