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.

UPDATE: Yup, turns out this is a Nokia Windows Phone 8 prototype. In fact, it is identical to the unit Joe Belfiore used for his WP8 demonstration at the Microsoft Developer Summit last week.
