Although the Microsoft / Nokia deal is still far from being completed, there may be a sign of what the purchase can mean for future Lumia phones. The International Business Times has posted a somewhat dubious example of this in citing a recent full-page advert appearing in a major newspaper.
The ad from the Telegraph, appearing on September 13, is a simple announcement from Microsoft on the planned Nokia purchase. The headline “The Microsoft family will be getting bigger. And smarter.” refers to Nokia’s smart devices and is a standard corporate statement. Companies often make big announcements like this through full page ads and there is nothing extraordinary about it.
