Nokia asks: What should we call our Windows Phones?

Here’s an unusual one: The head of developer marketing for Nokia in North America has put up a poll asking, well, pretty much everyone what the company should call its series of Windows Phones when they’re released in the United States.

We figured this would be the subject of high-level discussions between Microsoft and Nokia executives. And it may well be just a way of engaging and involving the community in the process, as opposed to actually turning over the decision to the masses.

At any rate, here’s your chance to weigh in on the issue.

Choices range from the space-inspired Nokia Voyager and Nokia Atlantis to the more ordinary Nokia Pure and Nokia Force. Another that seems natural under the circumstances is the Nokia Challenger.

There’s also an option for write-ins. Be sure to let us know how you vote, if you do.

    W stands for Windows, so they should be called the Nokia W1000, Nokia W3550, etc.

    How about “Microsoft spent millions buying Stephen Elop’s McMansion in Silicon Valley and now Nokia’s too lazy to even name it, phone”?

    A serious name: Nokia Ikon (it’s a palindrome but please don’t spell it Nokia ikoN). Somehow I expect they’re more likely to use a lame name like EZ or XPhone or annoying like Spawn or Fearless).

    On the Edsel theme: Nokia Pinto, Nokia Yugo, or my favorite, Nokia New Coke (it has a nice alliterative sound doesn’t it?)

    I voted for Nokia Dark Horse. I’ve been playing with WP7 for a few weeks now, and I must admit, I really like the platform. MSFT has to get mobile right, and I think they’re on the right track.

    Nokia Conduit seems like the best one to me :)
