Just under a week ago, Nokia started sending out invitations to a July 11 New York event. While they didn’t out and directly reveal what the company intended to have on its agenda, the “Zoom Reinvented” language they used sure had us thinking about the PureView EOS, which like the 808 before it, would be able to use its excess of megapixels as a workable digital zoom. While we found that tease to be relatively straightforward, perhaps Nokia is worried that it was still a little obtuse for some of you, so now it’s hammering the point home even harder, while still managing to avoid saying anything outright.
With this latest teaser, we’re hard-pressed to think of anything Nokia could be referencing other than the 41 million pixels expected to make up the image sensor on the EOS.
All of this tongue-in-cheek pretending that everyone doesn’t already know what Nokia’s planning aside, we really do still have some major questions about the phone, that are going to keep bugging us over the next few weeks unless some answers leak out. How about that name, for one? EOS is almost certainly a code name, and this is going to have to arrive as the Lumia Something – but what?
We’re also curious to see what becomes of exclusivity rumors. It’s looking likely that AT&T might be the only home for the EOS in the States, but the phone’s band support could leave the door open for T-Mobile (that is, if the Lumia 925 can stand the competition).
