Microsoft has been hinting that both the Nokia and WIndows Phone brands may soon disappear. Well, it appears that this is indeed the case. According to Tom Warren, of The Verge:

Microsoft Lumia is the new brand name that takes the place of Nokia for the software maker. The name change follows a slow transition from over to Microsoft’s new mobile site, and Nokia France will be the first of many countries that adopt “Microsoft Lumia” for its Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts. Microsoft has confirmed to The Verge that other countries will follow the rebranding steps in the coming weeks.1

Though this is hardly shocking, it is sad to see Nokia phones completely disappear. After being such a staple in the industry for the past 10+ years, Nokia, as a phone brand will cease to be.
