Nokia By Microsoft Branded Android Smartphones Incoming

considering using the “Nokia by Microsoft” on its Windows Phone handsets, in preparation for the expiration of the initial licensing agreement next year. Redmond was also said to be thinking about replacing the Surface brand with Lumia. A follow up on this report claims that the next handsets to be shipped with this “Nokia by Microsoft” branding will actually be the Android powered line up from the company, not the future Windows Phone handsets as was expected. In fact, these Android smartphones will also come with the Lumia tag — confusing at it sounds. All said and done, Microsoft’s immediate plans for both Windows Phone and Android seem to be rather unclear at the moment. As a result unconfirmed rumors are running wild.

In the meantime, what do you think about reserving the “Nokia by Microsoft” branding for Microsoft’s Android lineup of budget smartphones? Sound off in the comments below.]]>
