The first Microsoft Lumia gets announced next week
Microsoft told us on October 24 that we can, depending on what you feel, say goodbye to the Nokia Lumia, or be excited about the Microsoft Lumia, as the Redmond-based company is going through with its rebranding process of the (now Microsoft-owned) Finnish manufacturer’s Windows Phone line-up. With the same occasion, we were given hints that a smartphone is in the works, and on its way, and today, we’re getting solid confirmation.
Behind the hashtag #MoreLumia lies a genuine teaser up on Nokia Conversations page. You’re invited to “come back on November 11, to find out more!”, and that’s pretty much it, but it’s all we need. We need to get ready to welcome the unveiling of the first Microsoft Lumia, as the official tagline confirms “Microsoft is delivering the power of everyday mobile technology to everyone”.
This very tagline makes us believe that, instead of looking at a flagship device, we’ll probably get a budget (low-end) smartphone, affordable enough “for everyone”. The teaser image (above) isn’t very telling either. Hear say talks a bout a possible device with a five-inch screen and 1GB RAM, in addition to a 1.2GHz processor and a five-megapixel camera, but make sure to check back next Tuesday for the official news.
