A recent leak suggests that Microsoft plans to rename Nokia. The memo, discovered by a site called NokiaPowerUser, appears to be sent by Nokia and addresses its existing devices and services business suppliers
"Please note that upon the close of the transaction between Microsoft and Nokia, the name of Nokia Corporation/Nokia Oyj will change to Microsoft Mobile Oy. Microsoft Mobile Oy is the legal entity name that should be used for VAT IDs and for the issuance of invoices."
In short: Nokia Corporation, at least the hardware business Microsoft purchased, becomes Microsoft Mobile.
In the letter, Nokia also assures its partners that all existing agreements will remain in place, stating:
Under the terms of the sale, Microsoft will assume all rights, benefits and obligations of the Nokia Devices and Services business... the current terms and conditions that you have with the Devices and Services business will not change.
Microsoft announced plans to acquire Nokia for $7.2 billion back in September 2013 and Nokia shareholders approved the deal in November.
In a brief press statement released on Sunday, Nokia revealed it expects the sale of its devices and services business to Microsoft to close on April 25.

So overall nothing changes for the suppliers and end users. All we 'The Common People' can expect or hope is a MICROSOFT MOBILE badge on the new devices. Well no one knows, lets wait and see what changes take place. :)
