A few days ago we wrote that a Nokia Lumia 910 made an appearance over at Nokia Remote Device Access program. Today, TechCrunch has done a little further digging and found that a Nokia Lumia 1001 is also lurking in there.
For those that don’t know what Nokia Remote Device Access is, here’s a short story for you. Nokia RDA will allow developers to test their code on real Nokia hardware, without actually touching the hardware itself. This is enabled via a web-interface, which will let the developer install software on a real Nokia device located somewhere over at Nokia’s hardware farm. I.e. these devices listed on Nokia RDA are actual phones, and not just emulators running on PCs.
However, this doesn’t make the discovery bulletproof. TechCrunch found the Lumia 1001 name by doing a Bluetooth device search on a Nokia N9 running in the RDA farm. Someone with access to the real hardware running inside the RDA could quite easily have changed the Bluetooth device name to “Nokia Lumia 1001.”
Still, one would want to believe that this device is real, and that it’s running Windows Phone 8 and having PureView onboard Nokia’s VP of Worldwide Developer Program clearly hinted of a device like this coming in the near future. You can read the article in question here.Read more: via
