Forget the Nokia Lumia 910, now the Nokia Lumia 1001 appears
It should be noted that when an unreleased model like the Nokia Lumia 1001 appears on the Remote Device Access tool, it doesn't give users access to those models. Those model numbers show up when a user takes a Nokia branded device to search for other Bluetooth enabled units nearby. The person who found the Nokia Lumia 1001, a member of the TechCrunch crew, was using a Nokia 500 when he spotted the Nokia Lumia 1001. Just to make sure he wasn't seeing things, he tried it again with a Nokia N9 and the Nokia Lumia 1001 was still there.
With the Lumia line, the higher the model number the higher-end the device. So with that in mind, perhaps the Nokia Lumia 1001 will be the first Nokia Windows Phone 8 model. Remember, we already know that current Windows Phone flavored handsets are not getting updated to the next build of Microsoft's mobile OS. Sorry, Nokia Lumia 900 owners, you can't have the flagship Windows Phone model forever.

Nokia should do something with model names because it may be confusing for the average users 900; 910; 1001...

This is going to be so awesome. This is it, the PureView Lumia with Dual Core.

This will be a android killing device. Samsung also will go for wp8 only. Its will also left andripd for wp8 but I want nokia+wp8 only.

It can't kill android, if no one buys it.
Which they haven't.
8. arsenaljimenez (Posts: 139; Member since: 03 May 2012)
It hasn't come out, period. Once it does, watch out android.
9. parkwaydr (Posts: 572; Member since: 07 Sep 2011)
The same was said for the 900, which barely outsold symbian.
I want to see wp8 succeed, but let's be realistic here, wp8 is a huge update in a lot of ways, but that is not going to change the Outlook right away, sure it'll pick up, but it will be a long long time before anything windows "kills android", it doesn't have a big following, a lot of that is because metro UI, while very smooth, is not universally appealing.

True, plus if wp8 gets market share, I think it's going to cut it from ios not android. That's what I really like to see.
After these court battles that apple started, I feel hatred for them.

Heard this before. They said the same thing about the lumina 9 series with the grand Nyc times square launch with niki Minaj showing up on stage promoting the phone tweeting on a BB daaaaahhh and by the way the same thing was said about Wp7 as the os killer for ios and Android. Still hasnt happened yet. So I guess every windows phone release will be a killer. Not happening. Nokia phones have no pizzazz. Pretty yes.. But nothing eye catching!

Dude, chill. Stop hatin'. As long as you aren't hating on Android, no one will fight you. I think that most of the Fandroids here are looking forward to WP8, including me, and it looks really cool.
Just don't be a d**k. :)

the transitiong from wp7 to wp8 was deemed nesasey since it was based on aging widows moblie kernal CE which could not go for full multiplatform support like win NT kernal will + multi core support for upto 64cores is impresive for start
38. Non_Sequitur (Posts: 1111; Member since: 16 Mar 2012)
Oh, God. Anything beats iOS. Lol.
All in all, WP is really advancing as a mobile OS, and I can't wait to see what they have to offer. As long as they don't pull an Apple and sue the s**t out of Google for worthless patents just to try to knock them out of the market.
Still torn between the Pad Infinity and the Surface!

At least we choose Android, Google didn't try to force their product to users by going to courts.

why does nokia and others like sony came out with their so-called roadmap. they are just giving the competitor a head start. apple and samsung, to a certain extent, does not do that and yet they are number 1 and 2 respectively in the smartphone market.

this isn't a road map...
This is a software compatible test lab for people to develop APPS

35. parkwaydr (Posts: 572; Member since: 07 Sep 2011)
You can't install games on the SD card, please, if your going to bash an OS, be truthful.

Snapdragon S4@28nm + HD Clear Black + NFC + PureView + Unibody enclosure + WP8 = success

I would be very surprised if they named a phone Lumia one thousand one.
This is a developers site, they can put what ever name on their they want.

Providing that W8 is everything its cracked up to be,a Pureview 808 camera with a W8 operating system, would be a pretty incredible device. Match it up to a really good 7" tablet and you'd have a very classy mobile comms. Set up.
