    well i think that it would be best for Microsoft not to tinker with the NOKIA branding in the Lumia line-up... shouldn't they? they should add MICROSOFT tag only when there would be a special Windows mobile phone just like Google's nexus series.... what say?
    Well MS has already confirmed that post acquisition deal finalization, Lumia phones will not have Nokia branding. They may have Lumia branding, but they don't have rights to "Nokia" name for smartphones. They may still continue using "Nokia" brand for featurephones/Asha series.

    ohh, now I understood, thanks!

    I hate these people saying that Elop destroyed nokia's legacy or nokia brand itself, they just don't realize that microsoft's pocket is way to deep and nokia will be using this.. and the same teams that worked on our lumias, will still work for newer devices, now on microsoft.

    Nokia has money now, and microsoft has the biggest tech mobile company basically, which means a win-win, nokia alone by itself wouldn't stay too long

    MS will probably kill the Nokia Phones unique applications, look what they done to their computer O/S with Windows 8 it's great for phones and someone wanting a touchscreen laptop, but business' want nothing to do with it, neither do I want it in a tower or desktop.

    I don't believe that most people know what Nokia's true legacy is, they were once a paper making mill in the 1860s. Their true legacy is surviving the test of time by shifting their company to what's profitable to keep the name Nokia going.

    The Verge, CNET and Engadget are horrible place to find anything positive about Microsoft / NOKIA but they are good to entertain one's self in trolling posts =D

    At first I hated the name Lumia, then it grew on me, now it will be torn from me before it's time. :(

    They should kill off the WP brand and call it something else.

    Verge is not the voice of Microsoft. Verge is trash. I'm surprised many people still read their rubbish articles. I mean people have some class. Out with the verge!

    In that vain may I propose a new thread?

    "Forum members suggest MS will now kill off Verge"
