NokiaLast week we reported that Nokia is set to unveil their Nokia “Phi” Windows Phone 8 device at Nokia World 2012, scheduled to be held in Helsinki, Finland on September 5. Today The Verge, via unnamed sources, re-confirmed this rumor with details about another two Nokia Windows Phone 8 handsets coming soon.

According The Verge, the Nokia “Phi” (codename only) will be initially available on US’s AT&T network as an exclusive hero device, and will feature a large curved glass display and polycarbonate body as a successor to the Nokia Lumia 800 and 900. The Verge also reported another device, codenamed the Nokia “Arrow”, which is said to be a mid-range device and will be available on the AT&T as well as T-Mobile networks. Both devices are expected to be announced during the joint Nokia and Microsoft announcement on September 5.

Furthermore, The Verge also mentioned Nokia “Atlas”, which is said to be an identical variant of the Nokia “Arrow” but able to run on the Verizon network, will be announced later in the year. No details about international availability of any of these devices at this stage, but it’s safe to assume that these devices will be coming to markets globally.

    I was hoping for more than a mid-range phone on Verizon.

      I think that VZN is getting what some have called the Titan III with 4.7 screen LTE etc in September  and the mid range Nokia and a windows 8 trophy like device as well.

    I’m glad that at least something is coming to Verizon!  We are on a family plan with AT&T(hate them and their crappy service) and our last two contracts are up in November and January.  We are planning on switching to Verizon after the last one is up in January.

    I was worred there wouldn’t be a Windows Phone 8 available to transition to then since I am the only one running one on the plan with my Focus. (the other ones are an iPhone and two “dumb” phones)

    This is awesome news for me!
