It’s pretty common knowledge that Microsoft will be eventually getting rid of the Nokia branding from its devices, and now there’s a new report making the rounds that this is going to happen much sooner rather than later. In fact, thee Lumia 730 and Lumia 830 will be the last two devices with the branding attached.
From now on, the phone branding will be Microsoft Mobile.
While this is of no surprise, that same report says that Microsoft could be dropping “Phone” from the name of its mobile OS as it continues to integrate its Windows PC and tablet OS with its mobile phone OS. Windows Phone as a brand of the OS could cease to exist as early as 2015. This will be one of the final phases (along with the Threshold update) for bringing the Windows platforms together under “one” umbrella.
It’ll be intesting to see how consumers respond to these changes by Microsoft. What do you think of these changes?
