Nokia has something cooking for Nokia World

Nokia’s annual conference covering, well, all things Nokia, is set to kick off this coming Tuesday and apparently the Finnish giant has something special in store for us. There is a mysterious countdown timer front and center on Nokia’s dedicated events page, and the clock is ticking down to 9:15 am CET when Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo and Executive VP Anssi Vanjoki are scheduled to begin their keynote speech entitled transforming the way we connect. That title leads us to believe this Nokia World announcement will be service-oriented rather than device oriented, but there is no way to know with any certainty for the time being. The countdown page however, also includes a sharing widget with the text, “it looks like Nokia is planning something big,” to be delivered to any recipient with whom the page is shared. “Big” of course is a relative term, especially where marketing is involved, so we’re not getting overly excited just yet. We do know that Nokia has some departures from its normal offerings coming up in the future – an Nseries touch device, the QWERTY sliding E75, its first SureType-style half-QWERTY “Wahoo” – but Nokia World historically has not been the venue for Nokia’s big handset announcements. Regardless, Nokia fans will certainly be sitting on the edges of their seats wondering what Tuesday has in store and as always, we’ll keep you posted.
