There’s been a lot of talk lately about the future of the Surface Brand and how Microsoft will re-dub them all Nokia by Microsoft or simply Lumia devices. Well get used to another brand name at the table, if the most recent patent cross-licensing deal becomes anything more than legal armor.

Both companies will have easy access to each other’s technological secrets. It could be interesting to see Canon’s imaging technology wind up in a future generation of PureView device? After all, Nokia/Microsoft does need some new expertise after its last expert defected to Apple.

Could future Lumia handsets come with Canon lenses?.
