Microsoft’s purge of Nokia branding and services continues: Opera announced Tuesday that its Mobile Store will replace the Nokia Store on Nokia feature phones, as well as devices running Symbian, and Nokia X devices that run Android. The change will take place during “the first half of 2015.” It’s not Nokia that signed this deal — it’s Microsoft, which has to support those odd devices it got as part of buying Nokia’s mobile business. The move comes a week after Opera signed a deal with Microsoft to become the default browser on legacy Nokia devices, and on the same day that Nokia announced it was working on an Android tablet for China.
