According to sources close to Nokia, the company is currently at work preparing two new Windows Phone devices for AT&T. The Nokia Prodigy, expected to be one of Microsoft’s ‘superphones’ for Windows Phone 8, is due later in the year. The other device, the AC/DC, will be a mid range device. Both the phones will be launched on AT&T. Launch plans on Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile aren’t certain as of now, but Microsoft is understood to be testing dual-core chipsets with a view to Sprint picking a potential Windows Phone 8 device.
HTC is also reported to be preparing one or two high end phones for AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. However, sources have said that Sprint and Verizon may not have committed to an HTC device as of now. Details on Windows Phone 8 leaked out early last month, claiming multi core processor support, four screen resolutions and an NFC ‘wallet experience’. Microsoft, however, is refusing to comment on its Windows Phone 8 plans, but the OS update is expected to be out later this year.
