    Got a note from one of my friends today (Silicon Valley tech guy) that read:
    "Guess what device I got to beta test today?"

    I asked if it was wp8, and his response:
    "It looks like it will be the successor to the Lumia 900."

    The Nokia Lumia 900 is so popular and Nokia's Flagship devices, I am sure there will be a successor. So there is no surprise there.

    The NEWS would've been if you had some specs and spy shots of the device.

    If this is true I'm bummed out. I thought I was on their focus group list. I did a focus group after Mango, but before Lumia 800 for an unnamed company, but I'm thinking it was Nokia. Crap, I guess I wasn't the kind of dude they were looking for.

    Jeez I would settle for the same camera with a low light sensor.

    Thinking just how custom hardware PureView requires and how much software work it needs, i got feeling we wont see WP pureview device in the next +8 months.

    It was in developement for 5 years and the camera sensor itself has another chip to make the 41MP possible. There's no SoC out there at the moment that gives you possibility for 41MP sensor

    Nokia's SoC on 808 is quite a bit of a custom work, custom and WP don't really go together.

    Even if it's real, it's not like Nokia will announce one device in Nokia World. 2 Windows Phones is a minium. One flagship and device to take 710's place i would guess. Plus w8 tablet.
