Nokia Phi Windows Phone 8 Model Pulled Out of US Patent Database

By Gary Cutlack on at

The forthcoming Nokia Windows Phone which would appear to be called the "Phi" has been spotted again, this time popping up in a US patent office listing.

The design sketches for the future Nokia match the look of the prototype model we've seen before, showing a similar design to Nokia's Lumia 900 model, complete with the rounded body and curved back Nokia's been using for its higher-end Lumia phones.

Nokia's expected to announce the Phi and a handful of other new Windows Phone 8 models at the company's Nokia World event on September 5th, if you're still waiting for an excuse for your pocket to go Microsoft. [LiveSide via The Verge]
