    I think I read that they (MS) did not purchase the "Nokia" branding, just the "Lumia" name... So I suppose it could be the Microsoft Lumia 969.... or if you just want a long name, the Microsoft Surface Lumia Windows Phone 969... or a as they say in Germany, das MicrosoftSurfaceLumiaWindowsPhone969.

    Otterboxes just make for ugly phones.
    I only use Otterbox case when I'm out and about. I don't use it at home, but I don't have kids or pets.

    I thought they were allowed to use the Nokia name for 10 years. With the Nokia deal, Microsoft become a juggernaut in patents for smart devices | Windows Phone Central

    I doubt they will use it for 10 years but I guess it's an option.

    I don't know about the Germans, but we wouldn't say that in Switzerland ;-)

    And if we did only the first letter would be capitalized :P

    Also we would write neunhundertundneunundsechzig instead of 969!

    Taking a stab I give it three years max and Nokia phones won't exist. The Lumia name will last possibly one year more after that. Then it will probably be MS Surface Phone or something like that.

    I never could work out the Swiss - I mean come on pick a language.

    You've got French, German and Italian and then you decide to throw Romansh into the mix as well.

    Why not just pick one and call it... I don't know... Swiss?

    Well crippled wifi but that means the same. :P No audio/video sites. No personal web email. No free software. No cloud services. So what's the point?
    i see your point. If it was me i would not bother connecting. At least that would make the battery last longer 😝

    I think the new Microsoft Lumia will be called Lumia One. At first, the phone will come some of the worst possible features that are completely against anything anyone could ever ask/expect from the phone.

    Then, all previous Lumia owners will revolt against it. Microsoft will then promise to cut back on all the draconian stuff and just give us the phone that we always wanted.

    Even after all is said and done, the Lumia One will ship with a tripod for the 250 mega pixel camera, although nobody wants or knows what to do with the tripod 😁

    And the German part speaks Swiss German what Germans (not being used to it) barely understand if at all.

    More interesting in my opinion, is that this mixture of languages and the corresponding cultures works for us :)

    nah, not anything you guys would like me to say that I did.. :p had to wake up very early to visit few places, and it wasn't worth at all. I didn't accomplish what I've planned to. Standing in queues is pain in arsch. That's why I'm tired. : )
