Earlier this week, we announced that Nokia would begin rebranding to Microsoft Lumia for future devices. Today the official conversations blog revealed the news, along with the new branding for phones, which will carry the Microsoft brand and Logo. Of course this rebranding doesn’t change much for current NOKIA Lumia owners, especially since the most recent WP 8.1 devices (lumia 930, 830, 730, 630 and 530) have all been released under Microsoft’s ownership. In response to questions about what happens to current Lumia owners:
Conversations: But does this mean Nokia Lumia smartphones that are currently in the market are obsolete?
Tuula: Of course not! Microsoft continues to sell and support the Nokia Lumia phones that are out in the market, such as the recently announced Lumia 830 and Lumia 730/735. As I said, the Lumia promise that you’ve come to experience and love will remain. We will continue to honor customer warranties and provide world-class care services as before.
So short of a name change, that we’re all sad to see go; most things will stay the same.
