The Microsoft acquisition of Nokia Devices and Services is expected to close later this month and to prepare for the transition a letter has been sent out to Nokia's supplier base. The letter, which has leaked online, suggests that Nokia Oyj will get a new name: Microsoft Mobile Oy.
Leaked specs of the Moto E include a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of built-in memory. The latter will likely be further expandable, as 4GB will not get you anywhere in terms of available storage these days.
The display of the Moto E is a 4.3" unit with unknown resolution (we would bet on a sub-720p screen). A 5MP main camera, front-facing snapper, 1,900mAh battery, FM radio, and Android 4.4 KitKat round up the list of known specifications.
The leaked 124.8 x 64.8 x 6.2mm physical measures of the Moto E are truly impressive. The handset will be significantly more elegant than both the Moto G (11.6mm thick) and the Moto X (10.4mm thick).
The Moto E is tipped to arrive in the coming weeks on the Mexican wireless carrier Telcel with the model number XT1021. Its price tag is certain to be lower than that of the Moto G.
