Windows Phone has a license to kill

Welcome to Rumor Has It! The show that rounds up the week's biggest tech rumors. You can vote on what you think about the rumors, in the interactive player if you're watching on CNET. It seems that rumor season is winding down -- we got new iPads, new iPhones, new Nexus tablets, and even new game systems -- but a few juicy bits of tech news are still making the rounds. This week, Apple reportedly made a big purchase, and it might be BOND, JAMES BOND for Windows Phone. Let's get started. STORY 1: First, here's a quicky: according to our favorite phone leaker evleaks, Nokia's next Windows phones will be code named after James Bond characters: one will be Moneypenny, and the other Goldfinger. Other reports say that Goldfinger will be the flagship device, and would be the first to use Nokia's 3D Touch Technology, which is similar to Samsung's Air Gestures. Windows Phone 8.1 Blue is rumored to have a notification center, better multitasking, and a Siri-like voice assistant. Of course we all know that the real Bond phone was the Sony Xperia T, which was used in the movie "Skyfall." Is Nokia trying to follow in Sony's footsteps? Does the codename matter? Will the Goldfinger phone come in� GOLD? Let me know what you think in the comments. STORY 2: Next, Apple has reportedly closed a deal to acquire PrimeSense, the 3D-sensor company behind Microsoft's Kinect sensor. Apple paid $345 million for the Israel-based company, according to a Calcalist financial newspaper report that didn't cite sources. But AllThingsD says that the deal hasn't actually been finalized. If this turns out to be true, it could definitely mean big things for another juicy rumor that keeps rearing its head: the Apple HDTV. Everyone agrees that an Apple HDTV is on its way, but nobody can agree on when. That's cool, I'll wait. By the time they come out with an iTV, I'll be in the market for a new set. What do you guys think the motion-sensing tech could be used for? Does an Apple HDTV seem likely? Don't forget to vote in our poll, and leave a comment. That�s our show everyone, share your rumors at rumorhasit@cnet.com or call us at 1-800-750-CNET. And tweet us! We're taking next week off because of the Thanksgiving holiday. See you in a couple weeks, and enjoy your turkey, if you're celebrating! ++++
