What is Nokia’s Alpha Engine?

A new Nokia product has been certified by the Bluetooth SIG, and this one is a bit mysterious, but also very tantalizing.

The entry for the  so-called “Alpha engine controller subsystem” does not reveal much, except that it runs on the latest Bluetooth 4.0 protocol, but the Alpha moniker does of course ring a bell, with the Windows Phone 8 handset with the code-name Juggernaut Alpha showing up all over the place.

Could this then be part of the first Nokia Windows Phone 8 handset showing up on the Bluetooth SIG, running Bluetooth 4.0 rather than the disappointing Bluetooth 3.1 in the general Windows Phone 8 certification?  I guess we will find out soon enough at Nokia World 2012 on the 5th September 2012.
