A couple of weeks ago, a rumor claimed that a certain Nokia Rise would be making its way onto T-Mobile’s network. However according to a new tweet by @evleaks, the same person who posted the previous rumor, the Nokia Lumia 530 for T-Mobile might now be known as the Nokia Rock.
According to his post, he claims that apart from T-Mobile, the Nokia Rock will also be headed onto AT&T by way of Cricket, unless he meant that Cricket’s version of the Lumia 530 is known as the Nokia Rock, although admittedly that does seem to be more likely. Unfortunately @evleaks did not provide any dates or a timeline in which we can expect the phone, so we guess we’ll still have to play the waiting game.
The Nokia Lumia 530 has been talked about for a while now. In fact it wasn’t too long ago that photos leaked online that showed what the phone could look like, although we have no way of verifying the images. Not much is known about the handset as well, although given its predecessor, the Nokia Lumia 520, we can only assume it will be a low-mid range phone.
The Lumia 520 proved to be a hit for Nokia, surprisingly, and turned out to be one of the most popular Windows Phone handsets around, despite the fact that Nokia had created other Lumia devices, some of which are pretty high-end as well. We’re guessing the low price tag made the phone good value for money, so we have to wonder if Nokia will have the same luck with the Lumia 530 as well.
