Alleged Nokia poster template reveals Windows Phone 8 branding

Alleged Nokia poster template reveals Windows Phone 8 branding
Make of that what you will, but a tipster just sent us a picture, which is claimed to be originating from the confines of Nokia, and allegedly is some sort of a non-final poster template.

Whether real or fake we'll let you decide, we don't know what the pro-printing jargon is for such a seemingly transparent plastic poster sheet, if that's it at all, but what we found most interesting in case this has some merits, is the Windows Phone 8 signage.

This would confirm that a/ Windows Phone 8 would indeed be the official name of the next Microsoft mobile OS edition, and b/ that Nokia will be outing new handsets with the latest and greatest from Redmond, which is not really a huge surprise.

What do you think of this, apart from the "Breaking the limits since 1865" slogan, which can be set aside as marketing pep talk?

Thanks for the tip!

Hmm if you say so. Maybe they just wanna tell the world that WP8 is coming to Nokia, so they didn't really emphasize the design work

nokia is doomed it should have developed symbian, rather than treading behind the MS...............

Why don't you support the current product rather than talking BS!

ever seen the WP & interface.??????????? that s**t sucks............ btw i will get back to u after launch of Carla, Donna and Emily symbian will always make it's presence felt :-p

Carla will launch, but Donna and Emily? I doubt they will ever see the light of day commercially. I agree that they are good and decent, but they will never be launched because the market space for them is already filled with more popular replacements. I liked S60 3rd Edition, and 5th Edition would not have been so badly recieved if it wasn't limited to resistive screens (sole exception: the X6), wasn't restricted to nHD (360x640) resolution, and didn't require double-tapping on everything. Nokia's Symbian had soooo much left to give, but its implementation was so poorly managed after 2008 that it is now a moot-point.

keep yapping............... anti-symbian freaks said the same thing after the big gaping hole left by v5 and then Belle and Anna came and were well received....................... so say all u want bcoz all the symbian versions are going to be launched......they are down but not out, and symbian is in safe hands of dedicted developers who are waiting for da right time .......

28. hepresearch unregistered

Symbian is in the hands of dedicated developers, but not at Nokia... yeah, and in a few more years, when you really want another Symbian phone, save up a few grand so you can buy one... from Vertu...

Here comes another MS basher.Window Phone 7/7.5 is miles ahead of Symbian. There is nothing COOL dude about criticising MS.

20. hepresearch unregistered

You sayin' that you criticize things for the purpose of "being cool"? Or are you saying that criticism in general ISN'T cool?

"Breaking the limits since 1865"... clearly in reference to year the earliest predecessor company to be a part of the later-developing Nokia brand was founded (as a groundwood pulp paper mill in Tampere, Finland, of all things...). From there, they also gained a rubber works division and eventually a cable works division, and their cable works led them into telecommunications in the 20th century. Then, their GSM standard burst upon the world in 1994, and the rest is history... I think it's a little cheesy of them to try to claim 1865 as when "Nokia" proper started "breaking the limits", and clearly Microsoft wasn't even a thought on anyone's mind in 1865...

well if wp8 will remove certain hardware limitations, that explains the breaking the limits part. 1865, i agree, too cheesy.

Nokia would never use those colors for their phones- especially the blue. They would use Cyan.

...Have you seen the N8, E7, C7, Asha series, or any of their past phones? They use the whole spectrum. With the Windows branding they may try to have the windows colors (red, blue, yellow, green) as options for phones, which I applaud. We need more green-colored phones, and non-black and non-white phones in general. Look at what phones that are sold in Asia: lots of bright and vivid colors (Fujitsu's WP7.5 series comes to mind)

It could be the bad image, but they look a bit day-glo. The greens, blues and oranges on the N8 were very subdued. In general for Windows Phones, Nokia has stuck with Magenta, Cyan, Black and White- its been a signature palette. Look at the Lumia advertising- its all used the same palette as well. This looks out of place. Also the Windows Phone 8 logo is not the correct font and is missing the square logo.

Am I the only one to find the design cool? If Apollo is going to be Windows Phone 8, then it is the phone you should looked forward. Heard there'll be - Micro SD Slot - Multicore optimization - 1GB RAM - HD Recording - Windows 8 Kernel - Pureview Technology Obviously all these are rumors, yet sound realist.

I don't think so.... Windows is governed and all-ways will be..... Other's will follow Ios.... Android will lead Windows welcome to the world of REFORMATORY!!!!!!
