Nokia Windows Phone

It's definitely been a while since we last saw a new Windows Phone device make its way onto T-Mobile, with the most recent arrival being the Nokia Lumia 925 that launched back in July 2013. There's some good news today for all of you Live Tile lovers on T-Mo, though, as a new report suggests that a new Nokia device is headed for Magenta's shelves.

According to a Tweet from @evleaks, a Nokia device with the codename "Monarch" is going to be sold by T-Mobile. Just what is the Monarch? That's a good question, friend, and it's also one that we'll have to wait to answer, because right now it's not clear what makes the Monarch tick.

We've heard rumblings about a few upcoming Nokia products, including the "Martini" Lumia 930 and "Moneypenny" Lumia 630, but this "Monarch" is new to us. Because of this, it's unclear if the Monarch is a high-end Windows Phone handset or something more entry-level. However, with Microsoft expected to introduce Windows Phone 8.1 next week, one feature that seems like a probable inclusion on the Monarch is that version of Microsoft's mobile platform. 

What features do you hope to see included with Nokia's upcoming Monarch?
