Last September 2013, a big pasabog was announced in the land of things geeky and shiny: Microsoft is going to buy Nokia for over $7 billion dollars!

Fast forward to today and the deal is about to be completed. An official announcement from Microsoft states that the transaction will be finished on April 25. Can't get more legit than that.

But that's not all. Along with the completion of the acquisition, Nokia will be renamed to Microsoft Mobile Oy. What's up with the "Oy," you ask? It's the Finnish term for corporation because, you know, Nokia is a Finnish company.

Let us clarify a couple of things first though: Microsoft is buying Nokia's phone-making division (including the Asha and Lumia lines). However, there will still be a Nokia company after everything's been signed and sealed, and it will exist on a much smaller scale. This stand-alone Nokia will take care of device services like NSN (Nokia Solutions and Networks) and HERE (for mobile mapping features like HERE Maps).

So yes, this is really the end of Nokia as we know (and love) it. And it's all happening three days from now.

Let that sink in for a second.

The sentimental geeks inside us feel a bit sad. But we have to move on. As a form of tribute and farewell to a brand that helped us become Generation K (K for Kitikitexter), we’ve come up with five things that really made Nokia's old school phones techie classics.
