Tied to an interesting new viral campaign, Nokia may be announcing another new handset in less than two days. According to Nokia’s new “My Phone Knows Everything About Me” site, something is getting ready to drop this coming Monday, October 13. The Nokia Blog received an invitation sent out by Nokia’s word of mouth PR team, inviting the blog head to a small dinner event that will take place on Monday. The invitation makes reference to N-Gage, though Nokia’s peculiar new viral makes no reference at all to the gaming platform. In fact, the viral leads us to believe that we are simply leading up to a new Nokia campaign of some kind as opposed to a handset announcement. We’re not sure exactly what lead The Nokia Blog to believe this is all tied to a new handset as the phone pictured above from the viral site is the 7610 Supernova. Hey, the more the merrier. Nokia typically hosts larger events when it announces Nseries devices, as opposed to a small dinner party. This would have to be an Nseries handset as it involves N-Gage, so this rumor has a lot less going for it than we would like. Crazier things have happened though and all will be revealed on Monday evening.
