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.

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.

You got it wrong buddy, it's WP > iOS > BB10 > WebOS > Meego > BB7 > Symbian > Firefox OS > Android. :)

lmaooooo that's why android has 79% share in 2013.

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

Waiting for 2016....I don't know what Nokia will come up with in 2016.

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.
