Windows Phone 8 shown running on 64GB Vertu

Following the leak of several alleged Windows Phone 8 screenshots earlier this week, additional images appear to have surfaced. Chinese site wpxap has posted a number of photos of what it says is a Vertu device running Windows Phone 8. The photos show a device with 64GB of storage, identified as a Vertu in the operating system's settings menu. Vertu was Nokia's luxury phone arm that the company has agreed to sell to private equity group EQT this week.

While we can't be certain this is a genuine Windows Phone 8 build running on a Vertu, one particular screenshot shows a SkyDrive cloud storage settings menu. The menu is not present in the current SkyDrive application on Windows Phone, and appears to be part of the general built-in settings menu — indicating that Microsoft could be building SkyDrive cloud storage into Windows Phone 8. We'll know more about Microsoft's general plans for Windows Phone 8 soon, the company hosts a Windows Phone Summit next week on June 20th.
