Tweet reveals code names for new Nokia models
A tweet from evleaks proves that like us, the reliable source is slaving over a hot QWERTY over the weekend. But even more important is the content of the tweet which is a list of alleged new code names for upcoming Nokia devices. A couple of names on the list have a "Bond, James Bond" connection such as Goldfinger and Moneypenney. The other names are Normandy, Phantom and Spinel.

Considering that Spinel is a magnesium aluminum mineral with the symbol MgAl2O4, this could be the code name for an aluminum clad Windows Phone handset. The other names lend themselves to a number of various interpretations.

Windows Phone has picked up momentum in 2013, starting with the low-light photography niche, picking up speed with the strong sales of the entry-level Nokia Lumia 520/521, and continuing with the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet with specs that rival that on any Android device. The latest data shows that Windows Phone captured 4% of the U.S. smartphone market in the third quarter. Perhaps one of the phones mentioned in the tweet will be the next big Windows Phone model.
