The Microsoft-Nokia partnership has been on the horizon for quite some time, and it looks like the software giant is finally ready to bring it to the market.
Microsoft announced this week that the Lumia line of phones will now be available for download on its online store for Lumia 10 20 and 2030 smartphones, respectively.
Nokia has already made its Lumia 10 smartphones available for purchase via its own Windows Store for the past few months, and Microsoft plans to add the Lumia platform to its own app store in the future.
Nokia also recently released a video preview of its Windows Phone 8.1 software for the Windows Phone Store, and the video shows the Windows 8.0 software update for the phone.
Microsoft’s new Windows Phone app, which will replace Nokia’s existing Windows Store app, will be available in early 2018.
This means Microsoft will no longer be selling a Windows Phone version of its software to Windows Phone owners.
