Nokia Flame, 4G Windows Phone 8 model, coming to T-Mobile according to roadmap
If the Nokia Flame is a low end model like seen on last year's road map, we could end up seeing this device launch on T-Mobile's monthly 4G service. Considering that T-Mobile customers with the Nokia Lumia 710 were thrown under the bus this week with the revelation that the device will not be updated to Windows Phone 7.8, perhaps what T-Mobile customers truly need is a high-end Windows Phone 8 model like AT&T has and Verizon is rumored to be getting.
According to the roadmap, the device will hit T-Mobile stores on April 24th.

man... I was hopping it would be the rumored Nokia Catwalk with the aluminum unibody and true pureview camera(one on the 920 doesn't count)

that(and maybe a nokia n9) would be the only Nokia Phones I would consider buying

so because the 808 has a higher megapixel count and bigger sensor, it is a "true" pureview? they're both pureviews mate

For me, the Pureview that I want is the one that does downsampling. Saves you a lot of time editing pics.

PureView is whatever Nokia says it is. There's only been two models with that moniker, so there's not much to the definition. It boils down to the best camera tech Nokia can cram in a phone, not oversampling or low-light functionality or OIS independently, but the culmination of their years of R&D and production-ready tech.
Otherwise, yes. T-Mo really could use a flagship WP. The scraps are unsatisfactory, especially when AT&T gets the flagships. The 810, though nice, is am updated 900, and the 710 was a less-attractive 800 that T-Mo, despite the rest of the world offering updates for it (and the C7 Astound AND the 5230 Nuron, both of which I own) they refuse to do so. They pock the ball up with devices like the G1, G2, and Nexus 4, then drop it with the 710, 810, Blaze, Curve 9###, etc. I love my lower bills, but this ish has to end.

Buy a Nokia from T-mobile and you'll have no updates just like the Lumia 710.
Good luck guys! Good luck!

At least it (like the Astound and Nuron before it) is relatively easily updated directly from the international servers... Don't have to rely on a third-party hack to get an update.

It might be a variant of Lumia 620 for T-Mobile customers! specs are quite the same.
