Seven Nokia product codenames leak, that's a lot of Windows
Recently, we heard that Nokia's upcoming phablet device has been codenamed "Bandit"; and, we know that Nokia has a Windows RT tablet in the works as well as a couple of other devices. But, a new leak has unveiled seven different product codenames, which means the company has more extensive plans for new Windows devices than we knew.

The leak comes from prolific leaker @evleaks, who lists the Nokia product codenames as "Bandit, Lanai, Orion, Pegasus, Rivendell, Shorty, Siruis". As we mentioned, Bandit, refers to the upcoming phablet. The other one that looks familiar is "Rivendell", not just because we know Lord of the Rings, but because @evleaks had previously said that Nokia was working on a product codenamed "Rivendale". The thinking is that codename may refer to the Windows RT tablet that's in the works. 

That leaves five more codenames that we can't really connect to any devices. It seems like a safe bet to assume that they will all be Windows devices, and that the majority will likely be Windows Phone, since we haven't heard about any Windows 8 tablets in the works. 

It's also interesting that three of the seven have celestial connections: Orion and Pegasus are constellations, and Sirius (misspelled by @evleaks) is the brightest star in the sky. Perhaps those three devices are connected somehow.

Some of them might only be for developing nations. Wonder what buttons they'll bring on them, this time.

Stop it already. You don't need to bring this on every WP related article.

No need to get mad at him, if he likes buttons, let him be. Maybe he's a button enthusiast?

Its OK to express his opinion on 2 or 3 articles.

Does he need to spam on each article?

I think he should go to ButtonArena.com. Maybe that should help him out.

Another day, another Lumia - More exciting phones to see.
Another day, another Galaxy - More same old plastic phones to see.

This is Lumia. More than your eyes can see.

Epic code-names like always! Why can't they have the same name after launch as well, instead of having some model numbers? (I mean, come on, Nokia Lumia Pegasus/Orion/Rivendell/Catwalk/Searay; they all sound way sexier than calling them something like Nokia Lumia 1020/925/800.)

Nothing interesting on the horizon, as I said before Nokia need to do much more than super-powerful camera and thoroughly review its commitment to windows phone.

What can they do?

They literally cannot do anything else, they are maxed out. They are doing great designs, and concentrating on cameras. That's the only way they can differentiate and attract buyers.

They cannot do much on software and people don't like WP. They are limited by hardware but even if they weren't it's not like they'd out do Android manufacturers. And their cameras on Windows Phone are not impressive at all. They have very bad IQ and algorithms.

They came out with a screen that can be used with gloves. So they do produce innovations, it's just that no one cares.

WP is growing much faster than either iOS or Android for that matter. You people have managed to convince yourselves that nobody likes WP8, even though Nokia's quarterly sales numbers are increasing steadily. Also, those who underestimate Microsoft typically end up looking stupid in the end...

Look, I don't have an agenda against WP, or any other OS for that matter.

In fact I'd love if WP succeeded, got an application parity with iOS/Android and when developers released new apps they'd release 3 version for iOS, Android and WP instead of two.

But as it is right now, I have to go with the facts. WP is "growing" because it's got miniscule shares. When you have 0.1% share and you grow to 0.2% that's a double growth, faster than Android or iOS but it's still nothing. You also have to consider that when iOS and Android showed up there was no market, so it grew with them.

Finally, Microsoft is so quiet and slow about WP it creates an impression that they just don't care. WP is missing TONS of features compared to iOS and Android.

Once Windows hits 10% smartphone marketshare, I think the momentum will take it to the top. Go Nokia! Really have to appreciate the way they keep hitting the market and keep trying to give the best to the customers. Only wish MS would catch up and speed things up. I think 2014 is a critical year for WP & Nokia.

10% is that magic number. I have been cheering for that for 2 years now. It is a tough threshold to cross. Not going to get there based on new users alone. They need Android, iOS, and BlackBerry users to switch. That has been a tough one. WP8.1 is almost more important then WP8s initial release, as the features coming need to keep the momentum going.

it's already more then 10% in Italy and more then 25% in Colombia :) and in some other east European markets i believe it's also around the 25%

I sill believe Nokia will make a Windows 8 tablet May be "Sirius " is Nokia's Windows 8 tablet but if Nokia follows Microsoft's lead and sells it as an Educational aid/recreation/Entertainment Tablet which is a perfect fit for Windows RT tablets there could be a future in Windows Rt tablets because folks you do not need a full fledged desktop OS like windows 8 or 8.1 on a tablet to read school/College text books and do internet based stuff on it. Windows RT can do all this and it has a free office suite on the tablet also. this is a great device for a school class room or school library. maybe windows Rt has a future after all as an educational tablet for schools

In other words:
Nokia Lumia 930, 830, 730, 630 and 530 are in the manufacturing pipeline.

I just hope, Nokia isint making Windows RT tablet, but Windows 8.1.

I hope the next flagship is going to be called the Nokia Lumia 1000 & yes hopefully Windows 8.1 .....

Windows 8.1 phones..

(3) Top end - AT&T, Verizon and Global variants.
Mid range ( ala 6-8 series)
Low end (5 series)

That was hard..
