Microsoft Lumia 535 entry-level handset makes official debut

Following its leak last night, Microsoft has made its self-branded Lumia 535 smartphone official, making it the first Lumia handset to eschew the "Nokia" name.

Microsoft Lumia 535 details leaked, Lumia 1330 sighted

There are two new Lumia devices rumored to be in the works, a smaller Lumia 535 and a murkier Lumia 1330. But with the myriad, though not exactly ubiquitous, Lumias around, what makes these two devices special?

Does anyone really care the Nokia mobile brand is dead?

Does anyone really care the Nokia mobile brand is dead?

Nokia’s mobile brand is officially dead. After Microsoft bought the company, it took only months for it to decide that using the Nokia brand meant little and it could walk away from it without offending too many customers or worrying about losing market share. It was an historic moment, but it was a necessary one in Microsoft’s mind, and it was perhaps an end of era in the industry.

Look Ma, no Nokia – just Microsoft

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.

Microsoft finally settles on “Microsoft Lumia” name

One chapter of Microsoft's, and Nokia's, mobile history is finally drawing to a close. After a bit of guessing and speculation on what Microsoft plans to do to unify its mobile branding, Nokia's, or rather Microsoft's, French Facebook page gave an unambiguous hint as to what the company has decided to call its smartphone brand, and it won't Microsoft Nokia Lumia Windows Phone phones or Nokia Lumia by Microsoft Mobile. It's going with a much simpler "Microsoft Lumia", which edges out not only "Nokia", but probably "Windows Phone" as well.
