Microsoft ditching the Nokia name on smartphones

                                         The Nokia Lumia name will soon become Microsoft Lumia


New Nokia Lumia smartphones will instead by known as Microsoft Lumia, the company said.
Nokia's non-mobile division, which is not owned by Microsoft, will continue to use the name.
The mobile operation was bought by Microsoft in April in a deal worth $7.2bn (£4.6bn).
Since then, Microsoft has quietly shifted away from the Nokia brand.
A post on Nokia France's Facebook page confirmed the branding shift. The renaming will roll out globally in due course, Microsoft has said.
The announcement comes despite Microsoft agreeing to a 10-year deal to use the Nokia name on mobile products.
