The Nokia Lumia 910 could be the first Windows Phone 8 device

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.”
