Nokia Dropped Now Known as Microsoft Lumia
Nokia was once on the top of the mobile phone world now the Nokia brand will be meeting its end. Microsoft is now officially ending the Nokia brand they will be replacing it with their own Lumia range of Windows smartphones.
Microsoft purchased Nokia’s mobile devices division back in April for $7.2 billion along with a 10-year deal to use the Finnish company’s name on smartphones.
The Nokia name will completely disappear since the original Finnish company still exists as Nokia Networks, which focuses on networking, mapping and telecommunications infrastructure. Nonetheless, the end of Nokia as a cell phone brand marks the end of an era.
