Nokia Phi with Windows Phone 8 shows up on WP Bench

As we near the announcement of Windows Phone 8 (expected in June 20th) we expect more and more information to leak out.

A candidate for being the latest morsel is this screen shot from the WP Bench Windows Phone benchmarking app, which shows the latest device to be added being the Nokia Phi, running Windows Phone OS 8.0.9698.0. The number is in fact slight ahead of the list of build numbers we posted here suggesting it may be the latest version of the OS, finally on a real device that will eventually hit the market (vs the earlier Nokia Fluid leaks for example).image

Now of course it is possible to spoof WP Bench device names, but we do not believe this extends to OS versions, suggesting at least this entry is real.

What do our readers think of the Nokia Phi name? Let us know below.

WP Bench is $0.99 with a free version and can be found in Marketplace here.

Thanks Matthew for the tip.
