    The Lumia brand is dead. In this case, I think it's better for Microsoft to go with a new name. The Lumia name is more popular yes, but Surface has been generally associated with high-end hardware.

    The perfect name would be "Stopthebloodclotwhining". A little long, but very apropos.

    How about Galaxy S9 or iPhone 11. They may get a few extra sales based on the confusion

    I would put the chances of MS associating any new mobile like device with the Lumia name at 0.00000001 percent and I think that is worth a punt but be prepared to lose your money.

    I vote Surface all the way. This is a brand that's innovative, (mostly) respected and gaining consumer mindshare. As someone that travels A LOT (I've logged more than 100,000 air miles this year alone) for work, I'm starting to see quite a few Pro models out in the wild. When I first got my SP4 nearly two years ago I was the only kid on the block with one, but now they're everywhere. At the airport today I think I saw at least three others being used. There's real hope Microsoft can build on this hardware momentum, though never discount their unique ability to screw everything up in epic fashion...

    I think any relaunch should be headlined with a Surface device, definitely a hero device that shows everything that Windows is capable of.

    Even if this is accompanied by lower-end devices, there has to be a Surface device leading the relaunch and let's not make any mistakes, this will definitely be a relaunch of the Windows brand on phones.

    As for the Lumia brand, I think it's dead and should be dropped. While anyone I know who has ever used a Lumia device, including people who use Android and iPhone in their daily lives, have been impressed with the phones when being issued them for work, the wider impression is that Lumia is failed and as long as MS keeps naming their devices with that moniker, the devices will be considered to be part of a failed ecosystem.

    Name? The name could be Lumia, but they won't do that, it would go against Microsoft's strategy that aims for people forgetting past phones.

    So it should be Surface, even if it's a regular phone.

    Now, if you ask me, they should release a non-Surface Phone soonish, with new software technology or some gimmick, to keep the brand alive. And for fans to have something to buy.

    Personally, the Lumia is now a "has-been" and no longer relevant. Microsoft letting it "die" in the fashion we witnessed did the Lumia name no good.

    The Surface name has been beat-to-death and doubting, if Microsoft did managed to conjour up something, expectations would fall way short of that hype the Surface Phone generated of old.

    Anyway, a name means nothing if there's nothing to attach it to.

    I personally think the question is deeper than a name. The smartphone market is saturated with Android taking over 80-percent and iPhone taking pretty much the rest. A **smartphone** from Microsoft with *any* name would still have to contend *as* a smartphone where there would be little chance of success.

    I believe a new category of device, running Windows 10, Andromeda, with CSHell on a pocketable PC with Continuum, that can be full PC when docked, phablet-sized handheld perhaps when folded and a tablet when unfolded differentiates the device on a more fundamental basis than what the name would accomplish alone.

    With telephony it could still do what a phone does, but would be categoriacally a new type of pocket PC. With that positioning I would suggest the Surface branding so that it falls in line with the Surface family of devices under the Studio, Pro, Laptop and Hub as an ultramobile PC with a strong inking, digital notepad focus.

    -----------------------------------------
    This is how Microsoft could position ultramobike PCs.

    Microsoft needs to leverage partnerships, eSIM and edge computing to position ultramobile PCs:

    You are right Jason, I am already using either my SP4 as my desktop using a docking station, I also have a docking station for my 950XL, I am up for a phone sized PC running full blown Windows 10 that then uses Cshell, Continuum or whatever they come up with to make it more touch screen and mobile sized friendly, they will also need to strategize on apps like Phone and Messaging V Skype, I like Skype but I want to use it for Skyping, I want the mobile PC to make calls and send messages using the existing apps and also be able to make calls from my Surface or other devices using the phones connections.

    They are so close, yet managing to p*ss of users on a daily basis and losing ground, it takes a lot to get people to come back when the leave.

    Bottom Line MS need to take the bull by the horns, get a device into the "Mobile" market and then stick by it for more than 18 months and sell it......

    If they don't then the creep is in for the death of Windows and eventually MS itself, certainly within the consumer space.

    Lumia 100% It was not only Trademarked but people actually like the look and feel of a lumia device. they should also bring back the design. People used to love my Phones ( Lumia 900, 920 & 1020) either way without the developers support it means nothing.

    The Lumia name is done for, unfortunately. It really should be called a Surface. At my husband's job (Microsoft retail), he regularly has customers that ask when MS will come out with a Surface Phone.
