Look Ma, no Nokia – just Microsoft

This morning we've caught our first full glimpse of what it'll look like to own a smartphone made by the Nokia crew under Microsoft. Microsoft of course purchased the Nokia devices business earlier this year, and just now we're seeing the first device they've released without the Nokia brand. Unlike renderings we've seen before, this brand has no "Lumia" or "by Microsoft" at all - it's just Microsoft and the Windows logo, the same logo enacted for the first time back in 2012.

Nokia Lumia 530 Review

Nokia Lumia 530 Review

When we posted our review of the Nokia Lumia 520 and subsequently the Lumia 521 for T-Mobile, it wasn’t yet entirely clear the impact they’d have on the Windows Phone universe. Now that we know that Nokia’s efforts allowed it to dominate the Windows Phone universe, we can see how important it is that the brand was able to create a generally OK phone as an extremely low-cost deliverable.

The reason for the former besties not talking to one another is that Nokia buy, and Ballmer’s actions shortly after.

Nokia phone brand dies with a charger

It’s finally time. The brightly colored Lumia-toting design language we’ve gotten to know over the past several years is officially under a different roof. Microsoft has owned Nokia for some time now, to be fair, but the "Microsoft Portable Power" charger will be the first device that looks distinctly Nokia that’ll be released with Microsoft branding exclusively.

When Microsoft snapped up Nokia, we all knew things would be changing. The original darling of the mobile phone world had long been pandering to Windows Phone, eschewing better avenues like Android.
