Your next Windows Phone could be named "Jedi" or "Force" if an unofficial poll from a Nokia exec carries any weight.
Chanse Arrington, Nokia's head of developer marketing in North America, first tweeted a Polldaddy poll â€” to help name the brand's series of U.S. Windows Phones â€” last week. So far, about 9,000 people have chosen from the poll's 46 names or suggested their own.
The "Nokia Phoenix" is the crowd favorite with 14% of the vote. "Share," "Deckard" and "Fearless" have turned out to be among the least popular, with less than 1% of the vote. All of the choices are a departure from Nokia's current non-word naming scheme.
Blogger Eduardo Umana suggested that Nokia name its phones according to the periodic table of elements. Nokia employee John Loughney mentioned another less serious suggestion in a tweet at Arrington:
"I can see it, someone walks into the store. â€˜No, I don't want an iPhone, I want that Other phone by Nokia.'"
