Possible Nokia Windows Phone 8 prototype spotted in the wild
Obviously, the smartphone is alive and kicking, and by the looks of it, Windows Phone 8 is installed on it. Or who knows, it might be an older experimental handset running Windows Phone 7.8.
redesigned Metro interface, with funkier live tiles and more space on your home screen, will be present on both releases.
Yet don't expect this boxy Windows Phone handset to ever land at your local cell phone retail store. It is most likely made for developers to play with, while the better looking Nokia smartphones are the ones we will get to try out. That, however, will not happen until later this fall.

If it is thick, it might be a stripped down version of PureView camera

it may just be a Test Device much like that Samsung that was used for WP7.

If the phone is real, I just wonder how many lawsuits Nokia will have to go through to actually release it, since the whole design looks like an iPhone 4 just a bit thicker!!!
