Nokia Lumia 930 - possibly the last of the 'lumia' lineup?

Saturday, April 19, 2014 by the_Monk | Discussion: Personal Computing

 

The Nokia Lumia 930 (while not a huge advancement over my existing 920) will likely be my next smartphone.  Will it also be the last of the lumia's though?  There is speculation that with Microsoft taking the reigns of Nokia's device manufacturing this phone could be the last 'Lumia'.

i'm betting the low-end and mid-range phones will be called lumia and the high-end will be called surface. i haven't seen that in print anywhere, i'm just guessing. i'd be all over a surface phone, to be honest. this red 1520 and 64 gb micro sd card will be sold quite quickly.

I don't think anyone has seen it in print as yet, and only MS and Nokia know, but I think it's a reasonable assumption that a Surface phone is on the horizon.  I mean, why would Microsoft have bought out Nokia otherwise?  To own the manufacturing process of the most successful Windows phone, or was there a much bigger picture, like having an established manufacturer with the necessary infrastructure in place to produce its Surface phone? 

The latter is a most inviting prospect... let's hope it's so.
