Video of Nokia Lumia 820 reveals Nokia prototype, "Juggernaut Semaphone"
The other day, we showed you a picture of a rather large screened Nokia prototype running Windows Phone 8. As it turns out, the name of the device is the "Juggernaut Semaphone". While the screen size easily trumps the 4.3 inch display on the Nokia Lumia 820, the resolution remains 480 x 800. Unfortunately, that wouldn't work out to a great pixel density, but then again, this is only a prototype after all.

A video shot two weeks ago also seems to show off the "Juggernaut Semaphone".The video was allegedly hosted and posted by Igor Shastitko from Microsoft Ukraine and around the 8:15 mark, out comes the lumbering giant. You might notice the old style Windows Phone logo on the model. The video also displays some new Windows Phone 8 features such as Bluetooth file sharing.

We can't say for sure that Nokia is planning on producing such a beast, but Windows Phone 8 models are limited to 720p or 768p resolution which pretty much limits how big these screens can get. Regardless, would a model like the "Juggernaut Semaphone" be of any interest to you Windows Phone 8 users out there?
