    In the about section of my phone, my 1020 is only referred to as the Nokia 909. Weird, maybe they did change the lame last minute. Either way, loving this phone!

    I also noticed "Cyan Lumia 920" as the device name. That's odd too, since there is no cyan 1020.

    I wonder if he restored a back up of his 920 onto his 1020?

    Yeah sorry. Lol I did restore. I took the screen shot before I changed my device name. But yeah, I am focusing on the Model name. Anyone else see this on their device?

    909 was the code name for what is now known as the Lumia 1020.

    I understand that to some degree, but code names don't end up as the model name on the phone. I am arguing that it was the 909 all along and they made a last minute decision to change it to the 1020.

    Last minute as in 2 years ago when they switched to wp7..
    They know that naming it 909 would cause confusion, not just at the last minute..

    And work names - product names are totally different, for them its easier to work with 909 because of the 808

    Nope sorry that name wouldnt end up in there from 2 years ago. The Lumia 920 has "Nokia Lumia 920" in that spot, not "Nokia Phi" as was its codename.

    I have a 1020 from AT&T with no backups restored or anything. It also says NOKIA 909 on the about page. On the Extras+info page it lists Manufacturer Name as RM-877_nam_att_205. And when plugging it into a computer running Windows 7, it shows up during device driver installation and properties for the device as model "RM-877|Nokia 909".

    I agree that this seems a bit odd. After all, one could easily imagine tech support trying to get someone to identify/confirm which model their phone is, and then they'd have to know "oh, 909/RM-877 are actually 1020". There is potential for confusion. Maybe they'll fix it in an update.

    Hmm according to Wikipedia, RM-877 is the AT&T version of the 1020, so that makes sense. Not sure why they would choose to show 909 though.

    All Nokia codenames I know are, well, names. Sea Ray (800), Rover (N900), Lankku (N9), Hyperion (808 PureView), Phi (Lumia 920) Tube (5800XM) etc.
    RM-xxx are for the very specific hardware model. Like different set of freqs for certain operators.

    I believe 909 was the consumer name for the device for quite long, but got changed towards the end. Why wasn't it changed on that page? To create these kind of threads or the Tampere R&D camera team who created 808 PureView sensor and Lumia 1020 wanted to pay homage to the phone with that 909 name, even if its just visible there. Who knows.

    yes, thats what I said.. work names don't end up being the published name of the phone...

    I'm also saying they never wanted to call it the "Nokia Lumia 909" and changed it to 1020 instead at the very last minute.
    They knew from the start that 909 was only a work name not the final product name.

    My 1020 also identified itself as a 909 when I plugged it into my Mac and used the "Windows Phone" sync software (which works suprisingly well btw).

    I think keeping the 909 reference as the model is a nice tribute to the 808, but still I like the 1020 designation more, however I wouldn't want Nokia to remove the 909 reference in an update.
