Nokia UK says hello to its Microsoft overlords , website redirected towards Redmond

Thing's weren't going well for Nokia since the N-Series hit the Axe . The company , which was one of the first companies to use Windows Phone was struggling to keep its head above water until it was fully transferred to Microsoft early this year .  Even with its full commitment to Windows Phone , the company was still a bit of a identity crisis to its owner  Microsoft who wanted all their products  to have their name on it . As seen a few weeks ago , Microsoft is slowly working its way to axe the Nokia brand itself , and so far , leaked front panels and documents might hold testament as the once proud brand fades into the pages of history . The Nokia company , which maintains its own websites are now showing the first symptoms of Microsoftation as the Nokia UK website has been fully absorbed into Microsoft .com . As of now , the UK website is the only victim , but others will follow suit as the brand morphs into "Microsoft Lumia " which means that devices not running Windows phone and a  large portion of its unwanted former staff working on those projects will be sent home by the end of the year .

Update - Nokia Deutschland and Nokia France moved to their respective Microsoft pages as well
