Nokia-Microsoft deal is going to close soon and a leaked Nokia letter to its existing Devices and Services business suppliers base reveals two interesting things. First revelation is about renaming of Nokia Oyj to Microsoft Mobile Oy, which will be a wholly-owned Microsoft subsidiary and may be the name of Microsoft’s mobile devices arm.

Microsoft Mobile Oy? Too easy.

Oy?


It means "osakeyhtiö." It's what big corporations use, it translates to "corporation" or "joint stock company."

It might come as a surprise but there are other languages on this planet than English.
