A previously unknown Nokia device has been spotted running a test build of Windows Phone.
The Nokia “Champagne” device was spotted in statistics from the “I’m a WP7″ application. WPCentral reports that the unknown device appears to be running a test build of Windows Phone, likely to be a “Tango” build. The device was first spotted on October 25 in the I’m a WP7 list. Nokia is planning to launch its U.S. Windows Phone device at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. Nokia is currently in talks with several U.S. networks but looks set to launch its first U.S. Windows Phone with AT&T. Reports on Thursday revealed that Nokia plans to launch an LTE device running Windows Phone “Tango”.
Windows Phone “Tango”, set to feature on Nokia’s U.S. device, is believed to be an interim release between Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” and the next-generation of Windows Phone, currently codenamed “Apollo.” Windows Phone build 7.10.8200 was recently discovered in server side logs of a Windows Phone application. A screenshot, believed to be a Tango build, also leaked and demonstrated a new device search feature for Windows Phones. Microsoft’s chasis 2 specifications (Tango) will also include a 480×320 BlackBerry style design and LTE support. The software giant is expected to ship Windows Phone “Apollo” with 1280×720 resolution and dual core CPU support.
Nokia revealed its first two Lumia devices at Nokia World in October. The Lumia 800 will go on sale in select European markets on November 16. The device will be made available in black initially with other colors to follow shortly afterwards. See our full Nokia Lumia 800 review for more information on Nokia’s first Windows Phone.
