File this under “wild speculation,” but Dutch blog NieuweMobiel has spotted the Nokia Lumia 910 on Nokia’s application testing program for developers and says that the device may be the first to run on Windows Phone 8. For those who don’t remember, the Lumia 910 was originally rumored to launch this past May but Nokia hasn’t put out any official word on the device even after months of rumors. But now that it’s popped up on Nokia’s app-testing program it’s fair to guess that Nokia does indeed have some plans for it and that those plans might include Windows Phone 8 since Windows Phone 7 is basically a dead operating system walking at this point. The WMPoweruser blog, for what it’s worth, was skeptical that the Lumia 910 would be Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone 8 device and says that it’s “much more likely it is a Lumia 900 variant, possibly with a differentiator like 32 GB storage, to keep the market going while we wait for the real Windows Phone 8 handsets to arrive.” More →

Live from Nokia’s MWC 2012 press conference!

In less than one quarter with just two smartphones on the market, Nokia managed to take the top spot among Windows Phone vendors in the fourth quarter of 2011. Microsoft’s mobile platform still accounts for just a small fraction of Nokia’s smartphone sales, but the Finnish vendor is in the early stages of a transition that will eventually see Symbian devices eliminated from its portfolio. The Lumia 710 and Lumia 800 started things off, and Nokia revealed the Lumia 900 during the Consumer Electronics Show, a flagship device that BGR exclusively reported will launch on AT&T next month at a very aggressive $99.99 price point. Nokia is rumored to have at least two new devices that will be unveiled during today’s press conference — the entry-level Lumia 610 and a high-end camera phone expected to be the international version of the Lumia 900 — and we’re on hand to bring you all the news as it breaks. Hit the jump for our live coverage of Nokia’s press conference, which is scheduled to begin at 2:30 a.m. EST / 11:30 p.m. PST (8:30 a.m. local time in Barcelona). More →
