It has now been confirmed that Microsoft will be keeping the Lumia brand around for at least ten years as a result of a licensing deal. However, a recent interview suggests that Microsoft has not yet decided if it is worth holding onto the Nokia brand name as well. While talking with CNET, Director of Windows Phone Greg Sullivan, confirmed that Lumia will stick around but he refused to say if Nokia itself would continue on after the acquisition is complete. Microsoft is set to take over Nokia completely by the end of March, meaning that we will know whether or not the Nokia brand will remain untouched shortly. Since the Lumia devices are some of the only ones that have become popular for their use of Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS, it makes sense that Microsoft would want to continue to use the Lumia name on future Windows Phone devices.

Samsung Electronics unveiled a new smartwatch and fitness band along with the latest version of its Galaxy smartphone on Monday, demonstrating how the battleground for innovation is shifting from the hand to the wrist. The world's biggest smartphone maker set a trend less than six months ago for wearable devices that link to mobile handsets with its Galaxy Gear watch, which has seen rivals like Sony and Huawei follow in its wake. The switch in focus also underlines the challenges the South Korean firm is facing. Low-price Chinese rivals are churning out products that look increasingly similar at a time when smartphone sales have started to ease, taking a toll on Samsung's earnings. To fight back, Samsung is taking a less glitzy marketing approach to control costs. It has also performed a U-turn, abandoning its previous heavy focus on sweeping hardware improvements to highlight more subtle features in its devices and accessories in a bid to appeal to a wider audience. "With the Galaxy S5, Samsung is going back to basics," JK Shin, co-chief executive and president of Samsung's mobile business, told an audience of Samsung employees, partners and media at the annual Mobile World Congress technology trade show in Barcelona. Samsung will roll out the S5 globally on April 11, with pricing details yet to be disclosed. More»
