As the Microsoft-Nokia deal is coming to an end, more information about the changes the deal is going to bring in the two companies have started sprouting out in the wild. Rumors have it that Microsoft-Nokia deal will be completed this month itself.
Off late, you should have noticed that Nokia Lumia's advertisements do feature Nokia brand name on TV but more attention are shed to Microsoft's Windows Phone product. Why? Everyone should have have known by now.
Now the latest information, which has come to our notice suggests that Microsoft is going to change the Nokia into Microsoft Mobiles. The information comes from the leaked email from Microsoft, which says that the handset division of Nokia will be renamed Microsoft Mobile once Microsoft's Nokia takeover is complete.
In actual words, the alleged email states, "Please note that upon the close of the transaction between Microsoft and Nokia, the name of Nokia Corporation/Nokia Oyj will change to Microsoft Mobile Oy. Microsoft Mobile Oy is the legal entity name that should be used for VAT IDs and for the issuance of invoices."
The move might upset a number of Nokia fans. However, Windows Phone lovers might be pleased on the other hand.
The email further reads, "In addition to becoming a supplier for Microsoft Mobile Oy, we appreciate that you might also remain a supplier to the continuing businesses of Nokia (i.e., NSN, HERE or Advanced Technologies) after the close of the transaction between Microsoft and Nokia Devices and Services. Nokia will communicate separately any changes in invoicing methods and addresses before the close of this transaction."
Will there be any difference in changing the name? Or what are the possible consequences that the company might face after renaming the brand? You can drop your opinions to us in the comment box below.
