去年微软宣布以 72 亿将 NOKIA 手机部门，外界认为微软主要的用意在于要将背后庞大的手机专利拿到手，不过从最新外电曝光的资料来看，微软公司还想运营手机，不过原本的 NOKIA 品牌将换以「Microsoft Mobile Oy」的形式出现。换言之，未来「NOKIA」的品牌名可能将会消失。
今年 MWC 2014 活动现场所展示的 Nokia X、X+、XL，恐将成为真正的末代机种。
根据 NOKIAPoweruser 曝光的资料指出， 2014 年 4 月底将会完成 NOKIA 收购移转程序，还告诉合作伙伴将会把名称更改为 Microsoft Mobile Oy，产品名称将不会以「NOKIA」的形式推出，主要的原因是 NOKIA 的 LOGO 使用权并不在微软手上。
此外，Microsoft Mobile Oy 公司总部将从芬兰的 Keilalahdentie 搬到 Keilaranta，除了持续运营现有的 NOKIA 手机业务，也将微软 Surface 装置的营运与开发都将会纳入Microsoft Mobile Oy 当中，并由前任 Nokia 执行长 Stephen Elop 担任负责人，目前已经陆续与合作伙伴、供应链等重新签署合约内容。
