Nokia Windows Phone 8 Rumors Look To Carriers, New Codenames

Yesterday, we heard a little more about one of the Windows Phone 8 devices Nokia has been working on, known by the codename Phi. That one’s the largest of the models we’ve been exposed to through leaked pics of prototypes and phone components. Today we have some new rumors to check out, talking about how that model will arrive on carriers, as well as some of the other WP8 Nokia codenames in play.

Reportedly, the Phi will launch as an AT&T exclusive. That’s not entirely surprising, especially when we look at how the Lumia 900 arrived.

That’s supposed to be the high-end of Nokia’s new lineup, and with a 4.7-inch display, we can understand why. We’ve seen signs of a couple other Nokia designs, and one of them may arrive as the mid-range handset codenamed Arrow. Arrow would be a GSM model, coming to both AT&T and T-Mobile in the States.

Finally, these rumors also point to a CDMA version of the Arrow, which would come to Verizon as codename Atlas. Unlike the others, that one might not be part of the very first wave of WP8 gear, arriving somewhat later.
