We already know that Microsoft is planning on attempting to make an additional impact in the high-end smartphone market with the launch of two new devices this coming October. A number of leaks over the past few weeks have already given us a sketchy look at the supposed new devices, as well as the accompanying full hardware specifications.

The tech. world has been rocked by a series of high-profile acquisitions over the past couple of years, but whilst Facebook’s purchase of WhatsApp is perhaps the most memorable, Microsoft’s buyout of Finnish telecoms giant Nokia last September is right up there. We always knew that the Nokia branding would eventually make way for something a little more reflective of the new ownership, a notion that was recently confirmed with the announcement that high-end Lumia handsets would change from Nokia Lumia to Microsoft Lumia. Now, for the first time, a leak out of China gives us an idea of what these devices will look like with their new logo.

Having wrapped up the acquisition of Nokia earlier on in the year, Microsoft’s BUILD developers conference was largely focused around the Windows Phone 8.1 update. Having been seen as a distant third place to iOS and Android thanks to its lack of key features, Windows Phone has struggled to make a dent in the market share of the Big Two, but with the newer software promising some great features including a voice assistant in Cortana, there’s renewed optimism that the software giant may finally stake more than just a token claim to the smartphone industry. After the developer preview launch shortly after BUILD, Windows Phone 8.1 is this week rolling out to Lumia devices via the Cyan update, and as ever, we’ve got all of the major details right here.

Executives constantly jump ship between some of the biggest names in tech, and today, Nokia’s former photography lead Ari Partinen has joined Apple in a move that will doubtlessly help to improve the point-and-shoot credentials of the iPhone and iOS device range in general. Given the reverence of the Lumia camera range, this is a massive coup for Apple, and Partinen will officially begin his work in Cupertino from June.

Although Nokia has long since been fighting an uphill battle in the mobile industry by choosing to jump on the back of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8, one cannot fault the companies endeavors with regards to devices. As well as the fleet of devices previously available on Windows Phone 7, the Finnish outfit has released a fleet of great handsets over the past twelve months such as the Lumia 920, aluminum-laden Lumia 925, and the 41-megapixel marvel that is the Lumia 1020. With the middle of the market also covered and the company still dropping its fair share of dumbphones, there’s one key area of the smartphone spectrum still untried from Nokia’s point of view, but according to reports out of My Nokia Blog, the company is preparing an entry to the emerging collection of so-called ‘phablet’ devices.

Windows Phone is currently in the midst of one of its stickiest patches, even though it finally got its own YouTube app just recently. As the saying goes though, one YouTube app does not make a platform successful. Or something like that.

Nokia’s success depends very much on the Windows Phone platform it has leant so heavily on these past couple of years, and having ditched its own Symbian software in favor of the pretty, if still emerging Microsoft mobile operating system, it stands to reason that the continued promotion of WP8 is as much the Finnish outfit’s responsibility as it is Redmond company’s. To help keep Lumia smartphones ticking over when connecting to the mains is not an option, Nokia has thrown together a rather beautiful portable charger, which notably, takes the shape of a Windows (Phone) 8 Live Tile.

The last couple of months have been dominated by talk of upcoming iOS and Android devices, namely the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC’s One, as well as the as-yet unconfirmed successor to the iPhone 5. Amid all of this speculation, it’s easy to forget that there’s a third horse vying for relevance in the busy smartphone arena, and Finnish outfit Nokia is looking to remind the smartphone industry that its range of Windows Phone 8 devices can mix it with the best of them by holding a special press event on May 14th, which will allow the tech world to “see what’s next” from the Lumia brand.
