Leaked letter confirms that Microsoft Mobile Oy will be the new name of Nokia's handset division
With the Microsoft purchase of Nokia's Devices and Services set to close this month, the Redmond based software giant has been sending out letters to various companies to inform them of the imminent closing of the acquisition. One bit of information that has been leaked from these letters, is that Microsoft plans on renaming the Nokia handset business as Microsoft Mobile Oy. This was already hinted at in a previous letter from Microsoft to Nokia's customers, that we showed you last week.

Microsoft also sent out a letter to companies that Nokia Devices and Services does business with. The letter was sent to inform these firms that the terms and conditions that applied when Nokia owned the business, will remain the same once Microsoft takes over. Microsoft also let these companies know that some of them will probably remain suppliers to Nokia's remaining businesses (NSN, HERE or Advanced Technologies) and that the Finnish based company would probably correspond any new terms and conditions to them directly.

You can read the leaked letter from Microsoft to Nokia suppliers, below.

Dear Supplier,

On September 3, 2013, Nokia Corporation announced its intention to sell substantially all of its Devices and Services Business to Microsoft Corporation. We anticipate the transaction to close during April 2014.

Under the terms of the sale, Microsoft will assume all rights, benefits and obligations of the Nokia Devices and Services business, including Nokia’s agreements with suppliers, customers and partners which pertain to the Devices and Services business. Therefore, the purpose of this letter is to update you that the current terms and conditions that you have with the Devices and Services business will not change.

Please note that upon the close of the transaction between Microsoft and Nokia, the name of Nokia Corporation/Nokia Oyj will change to Microsoft Mobile Oy. Microsoft Mobile Oy is the legal entity name that should be used for VAT IDs and for the issuance of invoices.

NEW BUSINESS INVOICE DETAILS:

New name and registered address replacing Nokia Oyj/Nokia Corporation is:

Microsoft Mobile Oy

Keilaranta 7

02150 ESPOO

Finland

New Bank Accounts: Please note that Microsoft Mobile Oy is going to have new bank accounts, for further information please contact us via AP Portal: https://ap.nokia.com/APPortalExt/Login.aspx (registration required).

There is NO change in the invoice sending method, please continue to send the invoices via electronic channels as before.

For further information on changes (legal address/send to address) after the close of the transaction between Microsoft and the Nokia Devices and Services business, please check our Invoice Address Search tool (IAS): https://ap.nokia.com/APPortalExt/AddressSearch.aspx (No registration required), or contact us via AP Portal: https://ap.nokia.com/APPortalExt/Login.aspx (Registration required).

Please note that the only changes in the Purchase Order (PO) layout after the close of the transaction will be to remove the Nokia Logo and change the legal address, whereas the PO numbering format and sequence will not change.

Continuation of business with Nokia

In addition to becoming a supplier for Microsoft Mobile Oy, we appreciate that you might also remain a supplier to the continuing businesses of Nokia (i.e., NSN, HERE or Advanced Technologies) after the close of the transaction between Microsoft and Nokia Devices and Services. Nokia will communicate separately any changes in invoicing methods and addresses before the close of this transaction.

Best regards,

Nokia Devices and Services Financial Services Purchase to Pay Team

When did Microsoft start using Yiddish?

"Oy, stop shlepping around that ugly Android when you visit your bubbe! What are you, a meshugener?"

Free matzha ball soup and some latkes with every Windows Phone purchase! Wait... I'd probably buy a whole bunch of WP devices in that case!

Ojy means it's a public listed company. Like Private Limited etc. Please research before commenting nonsense.
And btw, Android > iOS > WP.

MeeGo is a very cool awesome nice concept, but because Nokia really made just one version of it, it's full of bugs and still needs a lot to do. I will miss the swipe gestures though when moving to Z2

Definitely not perfect, but when it comes to sheer beauty (both the device and the UI) and just plain fun to use, the N9 remains my favourite handset.

I loved that phone running on Meego Maeemo, much better than wp8

Nokia N9, replaces Lumia brand which is failing no matter what they advertise and no matter if billions are spended on.

And that's why most Android OEMs are spilling red ink in 2013 AND 2014.

android has 79% share because there's so many android devices from well known manufacturers to cheap asian rip off companies

considering apple releases one phone a year they can be releasing

the same old crap it came up with in the last few years that made it lose all it's market share and end up being sold.

And no matter what Samsung does, their flagships look the ugliest in the class. :)

I think any company would take being called 'ugly' (which BTW is subjective) if it makes a profit of 7 billion a quarter.

While being sold to MS on the other hand...

but arent you sad that your flagship device doesnt look like, oh you know, flagship-ish?

I prefer function over form

BTW, I already said 'ugly' is subjective. Besides, I don't find it ugly along with 100 million galaxy owners and 40 million GS5 customers who don't either.
