Nokia Goldfinger and Moneypenny to be Windows Phone 8.1 devices?
Nokia's recently leaked Moneypenny and Goldfinger device could be the first Windows Phone 8.1-toting mobile phones from the company.
We first heard of the James Bond-themed devices when serial tipster @evleaks posted the names on his Twitter account.
It is thought that the Goldfinger handset will be Nokia's new flagship and will come with 3D touch, which allows users to make gestures around the phone instead of being limited to the touchscreen.
According to The Verge, the Nokia Goldfinger will also allow consumers to interact with the device by using their hands at the side and above the smartphone. Unknown sources told the news provider that these gesture controls could include scrolling and flipping, which would enable Windows Phone 8.1 users to scroll through menus without having to touch their phone.
Many suspect that Microsoft will wait until the Mobile World Congress (MWC), which will be held in Barcelona in February 2014, to reveal its next operating system. It's also likely that we could see new devices from its recently acquired Nokia division.
