Rumored list of upcoming Windows Phone devices leaked

Microsoft has already announced that Nokia, Samsung, HTC and Huawei will be the first four hardware partners for the launch of Windows Phone 8 later this fall. Today, a website has posted up a list of what it claims are the names of some of these upcoming devices.

The Chinese language site WPDang reports posted up the list, which shows three names of upcoming Nokia smartphones. One of them has been outed before, the Phi. The others are new, the Fluid and, in one of the oddest smartphone names we have ever seen, the Dogphone. It's more than likely that these labels are merely code names for upcoming products that will bear the Lumia brand when they are released.

Yet another name on the list from Nokia is the P4301, which some speculate could be the name of a PureView-based Windows Phone device. There's also a Samsung product listed, the Samsung SGH-1687.

The strangest listing on this leaked list is for a company called Juggernaut for a product named Alpha. We have absolutely no idea what this listing is all about but it's possible that both the company name and the name of the device are both cover labels for something else.

Nokia Dogphone. That's one hell of an as-of-yet untapped smartphone market!

I really hope that Nokia pulls an Apple and gives the new WP8 phones just slightly tweaked Lumia 800 / 900 exteriors!

Dogfooding is the act solely using product that your company produces. Most likely this is a test phone.

Maybe its reference to a UK exclusive phone.
In Cockney East End Rhyming Slang, people would say 'wheres me dog and bone' when asking for their (mobile) phone.

Or... as Microsoft refer to their internal testing 'dog food' it might very well be a model of phone (or OS) that Microsoft employees use as their mobile device.

Yes, I'm aware of what it means. I was just trying to make a witty remark about the phone.

WP7... OSv8??
So which OS will be on the phone, 7 or 8?

Version 8 is WP8. The update to WP7 is version 7.8

I still don't understand what the problem with 480x800 is.
The problem is that the platform supports higher resolution and they're not utilizing it with higher definition panels. I personally would prefer to see 1280x720 or something similar.

Why you ask? Because consumers are going to be doing a side by side comparison to other platforms. Many current Android models are 1280x720 because 800x400 is part of last years specs. New phones need comparable hardware.

However, if these aren't flagship models, then 800x400 is perfectly acceptable since it would allow them to make cheaper hardware to fill out the low-end price points.

its not bad per se, but if among most of the phones in development there arent any with higher resolution, then its bad.

i dont particularly care for specs wars where except for when it comes to the display.

Its terrible for browsing the web and viewing the web. On current Windows Phones you have to zoom in a fair distance to see text.

I don't find this list to be authentic. It says OS= wp7 and then OS version=8.0.9722.0. OS is wp8. Some windows phone hater probably made this speadsheet.

I agree, it doesn't appear to authentic. Someone took what we know already regarding potential names and added them to spreadsheet and made up the rest most likely. I'm sure time will vet the accuracy of the screenshot.

Me hopes that Verizon gets a respectable WP8 device. I'll be picking one up promptly. I would have picked up the Lumia 900 if it was on VZW's network, and if it was upgradable to WP8 as well.
