New Nokia Windows Phone codenamed “Martini” in the pipeline

New Nokia Windows Phone codenamed “Martini” in the pipeline
Hopefully this is the beginning of what will be a steady stream of information about upcoming Nokia Lumia Windows Phone devices since MWC was reserved for the new Nokia X line-up.

Today it was leaked to keep an eye open for a new Windows Phone Blue handset from Nokia, codename, “Martini.” That is basically all we know right now unfortunately.

Microsoft’s //Build/ developer conference is coming in one month and it is widely expected that in addition to the introduction of Windows Phone 8.1, there will be a number of new Windows Phone devices unveiled to ring in what will be a huge update to the platform.  It stands to reason that we will see Martini make its debut with other Windows Phones, including perhaps the Samsung device known as Huron.

Spec-wise, we have no indicators as to what the Nokia Martini will be and we do not know where it will sit in the hierarchy of devices – that is, will it be a hero device or mid-level piece of equipment. April may be a little too early to expect a successor to the super-camera packing Nokia Lumia 1020, but certainly not too early to see a successor to the slim and fancy Lumia 925.

The timing of //Build/ is going to apropos not just for maintaining the momentum of the Windows platform as a whole, but it should also mark the very beginning of Microsoft completing its acquisition of Nokia Devices and Services. That said, it is entirely possible we see a device meant to be the flag bearer of that new arrangement.

What are you hoping to see come out of //Build/?

Definitely would love for SOMETHING to land on Tmobile... I left Verizon, cause the selection of phones (especially Windows Phones) sucked. And Tmobile has been slouching... Although I do LOVE the Lumia 925!

Maybe we can mix colors like you can mix a martini? Probably not, but it'd be cool as hell.

I'm thinking will be next Nokia flagship device. This is what I'm waiting for Nokia. This is beast guys. Watch your self. Specs just guessing. Around 5" 1080p, quad core new version of snapdragon, 2or3 gb ram, 20mp camera, wireless charging, etc.

In light of the Lumia Icon, I hope Nokia continues using words to name their Lumias instead of the traditional number combination. Words tend to stick more IMO.

I think the number should be on the end of the name, Nokia should make a name for their flagship maybe like...Nokia Lumia Zeta 1? Then one year later it will be Nokia Lumia Zeta 2 and follow on...? Zeta sounds great to me.

I think MS will end the carrier exclusive deals that hold the platform back.. When that happens then maybe the Icon name can be used for future high end devices.

Where's the Vodka? When there's Martini there should be Vodka. I hope this "Martini" is the Lumia 925 successor with 5 inch 1080p display and aluminium body, and where's the "Vodka"?

Pretty sure it'll have colorful backs and similar designs, just like Samsung/Apple all over again.
