Nah, but there will probably be one BlackBerry type of phone with hardware keyboard (like the Nokia E71 etc). Most probably is the 480x480 display one a budget device headed for the developing countries, kind of like the Nokia Asha 302 phone. That is almost guaranteed!

Any news on Windows Phone 8 on TMo gets me intrigued. The more the better.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: the 480x480 spec is for the small, smartwatch-type device. It will be billed as a music- and notification-centric device.
The 768x768 spec, however, is for a portrait business-oriented Nokia phone with a hardware keyboard

I was going to post the same thing. The link proves what M$ plans are for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. I can't wait to see what it looks like and grab one. When ever Sprint gets one that is!

ooh. good catch. did not know that.
hmm. a smartwatch? ehh... maybe. is would anyone actually wear a smart watch? they are not very popular now for android. in just a hair more time than it takes me to get my wrist into proper view, i can just about have my phone out and screen on. That and i tend to break watches reaeeally quickly. lol.

The similar names give me pause for my hypothesis, though.

Main thing I am looking for is a phone witha physical keyboard,voice guidance navigation,strong processor with long battery life and a large,bright screen with gorilla glass.also a phone that pairs up well with a tablet that has a ptotective case with bluetooth qwerty keyboard -7" screen.

Alan, referencing your previous post when saying that Verizon's CFO has said they'd be adding more Windows Phone is more than just a stretch -- that was a post with the man saying he considered having three smartphone OS to be a positive thing. Nowhere did he say anything remotely resembling your linked text.
Don't make snap assumptions with nothing but rumors to back them up, and sure as hell don't link them to a rumor article you yourself posted. That's ridiculously bad journalism.

I predict that Windows 8 devices will appear in store for sale the middle of the third quarter 2012 . I predict Nokia windows 8 smart phones on sale in
September 2012. Microsoft I think wants to RTM Windows 8 for desktops, Laptops, and especially Tablets as soon as Windows 8 for these devices is ready.

I guess it 768x480 display. 768x768 and 480x480 display would be really wierd.
