AT&T to launch Nokia Prodigy and Nokia AC/DC Windows Phone 8 handsets soon?

It looks like AT&T, Nokia and Microsoft have big plans together for the near future. Apart from launching the Nokia Lumia 900 (which will hit the shelves on March 18), the companies reportedly want to bring two other Windows Phone handsets to the US market.

According to The Verge, the upcoming handsets are called Nokia Prodigy and Nokia AC/DC, and both should become available at AT&T sometime later this year. Reportedly, the Nokia Prodigy will be a Windows Phone 8 Apollo “superphone”, while the Nokia AC/DC should be a mid-end device. Sadly, more specific details are unavailable for the time being.

It’s unclear if the new handsets have anything to do with the two bands which share their names (The Prodigy and AC/DC). I guess not, and I also guess these are just codenames. But we’ll see.

AT&T is currently selling four Windows Phone devices: two launched in 2010 (Samsung Focus and HTC HD7), and two released in 2011 (HTC Titan and Samsung Focus Flash).

Nokia aside, it’s said that Microsoft is testing dual-core chipsets for a possible WP 8 device headed to Sprint. Moreover, HTC is rumored to work on a few new high-end Windows Phone handsets that could reach Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. We’ll bring more on this as we get it.
