Latest Windows Phone 8 build numbers reveal Juggernaut–Alpha model name

imageA developer of a Windows Phone app has just posted some of the latest build numbers for Windows Phone 8 handsets in use, presumably somewhere in Microsoft, or possibly being tested in the field.

The latest build numbers, showing up this weekend, was 8.0.9720.0 and 8.0.9722.0.

More interesting is the model names associated with these devices.  The first was Microsoft-Virtual, which is presumably just the Windows Phone 8 emulator.

The next one is altogether more sexy. The “Juggernaut – Alpha” seems to be a named extracted from a playing card game Magic- the Gathering, and it certainly sounds like a powerful, maybe even “magical” handset, who’s properties demand he must attack at each turn and cant be stopped by walls.

We are expecting at least 5 Windows Phone 8 handsets to hit the market this year – hopefully they will all have these interesting names.

Thanks SuNcO for the tip.
