Nokia & Microsoft are Now Officially Together

$7.1 billion deal between Nokia and Microsoft has been completed finally, though it has to face various delays and setbacks.

The deal will make it impossible for us to see Nokia

smartphone again and it will also make Microsoft the second-largest phone-maker of the world.

However, Nokia will retain the same brand name and also along with board members and very little work force, it will be present there as a separate company.

Meanwhile, the rights of brand names of Nokia X, Asha and Lumia have also been acquired by Microsoft. In place of Nokia, Microsoft plans to use the name of “Microsoft Mobile” on all the future devices of alliance but whether it would succeed or not? We have to see this.

The new alliance will be headed by Stephen Elop, the last CEO of Nokia.

This deal also contains the moving of 25000 Nokia employees to Microsoft. After the ending of phone division, now Nokia will completely focus on its Advanced Technologies, HERE mapping service and Solutions & Networks (NSN).

The deal doesn’t contain the Nokia’s assembling plants in South Korea and India and the delay of this deal was due to these two plants.

Apart from that, the fate of current Nokia devices is not known also. It will be interesting to see the behavior of Microsoft with the X series while the future of Lumia series seems to be secure. As now Microsoft is taking hardware more seriously than before, so we also have to see the Surface line up of the company in the future.

The approach of company will scare its partners in the future but it is also giving it a better reach in the market. For worldwide Windows Phones, Microsoft is now making 90% of them. But mostly, such a huge business couldn’t be managed well by many companies. The huge failure of Google with Motorola is a good example.

Anyway, the same glory of mobile phones could never be achieved without Nokia, and most of us will feel this.
