Forget the Nokia Lumia 910, now the Nokia Lumia 1001 appears

Forget the Nokia Lumia 910, now the Nokia Lumia 1001 appears
Recently, Nokia's Remote Device Access showed a Nokia Lumia 910. For those unaware, the Remote Device Access allows those using a browser to access Nokia hardware. It is designed for developers to use to test out their code on hardware that they don't actually have physical access to. The RDA helped reveal the Nokia Lumia 900 last year, when it was referred to as the Nokia 900 Windows Phone.

While the Nokia Lumia 910 showed up recently, that device has been rumored to be around since February when accessories for the device appeared on Amazon and a Dutch retailer posted all about the device including its 12MP camera. Nokia's top camera executive, Damian Dinning, denied that such a device existed. Now, the RDA is showing the Nokia Lumia 1001 and once again we are left wondering about the legitimacy of the model number.

It should be noted that when an unreleased model like the Nokia Lumia 1001 appears on the Remote Device Access tool, it doesn't give users access to those models. Those model numbers show up when a user takes a Nokia branded device to search for other Bluetooth enabled units nearby. The person who found the Nokia Lumia 1001, a member of the TechCrunch crew, was using a Nokia 500 when he spotted the Nokia Lumia 1001. Just to make sure he wasn't seeing things, he tried it again with a Nokia N9 and the Nokia Lumia 1001 was still there.

With the Lumia line, the higher the model number the higher-end the device. So with that in mind, perhaps the Nokia Lumia 1001 will be the first Nokia Windows Phone 8 model. Remember, we already know that current Windows Phone flavored handsets are not getting updated to the next build of Microsoft's mobile OS. Sorry, Nokia Lumia 900 owners, you can't have the flagship Windows Phone model forever.

Nokia should do something with model names because it may be confusing for the average users 900; 910; 1001...

It can't kill android, if no one buys it. Which they haven't.

It hasn't come out, period. Once it does, watch out android.

The same was said for the 900, which barely outsold symbian. I want to see wp8 succeed, but let's be realistic here, wp8 is a huge update in a lot of ways, but that is not going to change the Outlook right away, sure it'll pick up, but it will be a long long time before anything windows "kills android", it doesn't have a big following, a lot of that is because metro UI, while very smooth, is not universally appealing.

True, plus if wp8 gets market share, I think it's going to cut it from ios not android. That's what I really like to see. After these court battles that apple started, I feel hatred for them.

Heard this before. They said the same thing about the lumina 9 series with the grand Nyc times square launch with niki Minaj showing up on stage promoting the phone tweeting on a BB daaaaahhh and by the way the same thing was said about Wp7 as the os killer for ios and Android. Still hasnt happened yet. So I guess every windows phone release will be a killer. Not happening. Nokia phones have no pizzazz. Pretty yes.. But nothing eye catching!

Dude, chill. Stop hatin'. As long as you aren't hating on Android, no one will fight you. I think that most of the Fandroids here are looking forward to WP8, including me, and it looks really cool. Just don't be a d**k. :)

Frankly, I do think that WP8 might kill Android 2.x in terms of user experience, but it is Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) Microsoft should challenge to avoid WP7's fate being the same as WP8. I am very happy to know that Microsoft added the SD card support and many more to improve WP. Wishing them best of luck to beat iOS.

the transitiong from wp7 to wp8 was deemed nesasey since it was based on aging widows moblie kernal CE which could not go for full multiplatform support like win NT kernal will + multi core support for upto 64cores is impresive for start

Oh, God. Anything beats iOS. Lol. All in all, WP is really advancing as a mobile OS, and I can't wait to see what they have to offer. As long as they don't pull an Apple and sue the s**t out of Google for worthless patents just to try to knock them out of the market. Still torn between the Pad Infinity and the Surface!

At least we choose Android, Google didn't try to force their product to users by going to courts.

why does nokia and others like sony came out with their so-called roadmap. they are just giving the competitor a head start. apple and samsung, to a certain extent, does not do that and yet they are number 1 and 2 respectively in the smartphone market.
