Nokia is expected to unveil two devices, running on the latest Windows Phone OS, Windows Phone 8.
Nokia will hold a media briefing along with Microsoft on September 5th where they are expected to launch devices running Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 OS.
The two devices that will be unveiled at the event are reportedly called the Phi and the Arrow. The two devices are expected to be a part of Nokia’s Lumia range of smartphones.
The Nokia Phi is expected to look a lot like the Nokia Lumia 800 and 900 and will launch in the US with carrier AT&T whereas the Arrow, which is expected to be a mid-range device, will launch with AT&T as well as T-Mobile.
However, your current Windows Phone 7.5 device will not be upgradable to Windows Phone 8, but instead will receive an update, updating it to Windows Phone 7.8.
Windows Phone 8 is expected to bring Microsoft at par with the competing smartphones OSes in the market, that of the iOS from Apple and Google’s Android OS. The features of the new OS include support for multi-core CPU, IE 10, MicroSD card support, NFC and more.
