Report: Nokia to unveil two Windows Phone 8 devices Sept. 5

According to a new report, Nokia's joint press conference with Microsoft on Sept. 5 will reveal two new Windows Phone 8 devices from the company. The devices are both said to be heading to AT&T, although T-Mobile will get one of the devices and Verizon will get a similar device, albeit likely at a later date.

Tom Warren of The Verge, who has an 88 percent accuracy rating on Tracourreports the devices are currently codenamed the Arrow and Phi, and will have a similar build to the Lumia 800 and 900 range of handsets. Specifically, the devices will feature "a large curved glass display" and the polycarbonate body seen in Nokia's other devices. Warren states that the Arrow will be a mid-range device coming to AT&T and T-Mobile, and that an "almost identical variant" will come to Verizon later.

The rumored Nokia Phi handset

The report meshes with other recent rumors and leaked information, including recently leaked pictures, seen above, of a Nokia Windows Phone 8 device. That device was later revealed to be codenamed the Nokia Phi. Additionally, last month a report claimed Nokia would be revealing two Lumia devices (the Lumia 910 and 920) at the Sept. 5 event. Yesterday, a Bloomberg report claimed Verizon would receive a Nokia Windows Phone 8 device but that the device would be revealed at a later date.

In addition to Nokia, HTC is said to be preparing its first three Windows Phone 8 devices for reveal sometime next month at events in London and New York.
