Trio of Nokia code names leaks, suggets more Lumia devices are coming from Microsoft
Evleaks has revealed a trio of Nokia code names that he says are from upcoming Nokia devices. The names are Vela, Athena, and Libra. These could be code names used for upcoming Lumia smartphones, or tablets. You might recall that last November, Mr. Leaks tweeted a laundry list of Nokia code names, some of which had a James Bond-ian theme to them, like Goldfinger.

One of the names in that latter list, Moneypenny, later became the Nokia Lumia 630, the first Windows Phone 8.1 model, which was launched last month in China. The Nokia Lumia 630 is a dual-SIM model. The single-SIM version of the phone is the Nokia Lumia 635, which was up for pre-orders in the U.S. via the Microsoft Store on Monday, but the page was pulled yesterday.

Along with the purchase of Nokia's Devices and Services unit, Microsoft reached an agreement permitting it to use the Nokia Lumia name for ten years.

why are phonearena authors spreading wrong info ? "Along with the purchase of Nokia's Devices and Services unit, Microsoft reached an agreement permitting it to use the Nokia Lumia name for ten years. " they have purchased " Lumia " branding... they can use" Nokia " branding only till 1st jan 2016... they have licenced the "Nokia" branding for 10 years in respect of feature phones only ... Nokia hasn't given them the Right to use Nokia Branding after 2016 on smartphones

Maybe its time for a 720, 820, and a 920 update. Its time midrangers see some spotlight. Its always 52x and 63x.

I think that microsoft should before this year is out Produce a new Brand of smart phones and Tablets because sink or swim a person or company has to stand on it's own merits. Microsoft can do that. for instance Microsoft's Surface Pro tablets and XBOX are Microsoft products that are recognized by the public. for instance since microsoft is now making a new OS that is a combination of the Windows smart phone OS and Windows RT OS so that apps written for Windows smart phones can run on Windows tablets that uses ARMS CPU's this New OS could be called "MS Mobile" and some smart phones and Tablets that use "MS Mobile" can for example be called "MS-Tech" Smart Phones and Tablets. in about 2 to 3 years the public would get USED to the "MS-Tech" line of Smart phones and Tablets and accept or reject them on the merits of How well they are designed and work.
