Thanks to an information leak by a Twitter user, details about secret and mysterious Nokia devices, including smartphones, have been released to the public.
When a company goes under, there’s usually a process of action for fans and the press in particular. The fans might discuss their favourite products form the company’s past and maybe even try and get their hands on devices and products that have been put up for sale at cheap prices thanks to the company wanting to cut its losses.before they’re forced to pay off all of their debts. The media, on the other hand, pick apart what made the company fail. Both of these things have been done for Nokia already, but, in a surprising turn, Microsoft have picked up the division of the electronics maker that creates new devices and in the process of turning the company’s fortune around, details about secret Nokia handsets have made their way onto Twitter.
The leaker in question, @evleaks on Twitter, has stated that Nokia are working on two smartphones with the codenames of Goldfinger and Moneypenny, with the James Bond-sounding phones reportedly set to be the first phones that will run on the Windows 8.1 (Blue) operating system. The leaker’s information has some credibility as it has been previously rumoured that Microsoft will release the Windows 8.1 (Blue) OS sometime early next year, giving the two companies plenty of time to make announcements.
On other upcoming Nokia products, the leaker stated that one of their next devices is set to be a flagship phone for the company, widely thought to be a successor to the Nokia Lumia 1020, high quality camera and all. On the other hand, the leaker also wrote about another Apple-bothering device that could be an attempt to rival the iPhone as it could be set to include a virtual assistant that is somewhat similar to iOS’ Siri. The leaker says that both of these devices will include the Windows 8.1 (Blue) OS which we may know more about in the coming months, with Microsoft possibly making a statement at the Mobile World Congress 2014.
We’ll keep you posted once we know more.
