Nokia has a “surprise” coming tomorrow; should we be excited?
Based on all the rumors we’ve been hearing, Nokia has quite a few devices in its pipeline; in fact, we were only just telling you about launch plans for the Lumia 1520, and new talk about a dual-SIM Lumia 720. But while that most recent 1520 gossip claimed that the phone would launch on September 26, we’re now wondering what the company might have planned for tomorrow, instead, as it posts a teaser message to Twitter.
Nokia announces that it has a surprise to share tomorrow, and mentions it wants its followers to tweet about how their Lumia phones might survive Friday the 13th.
There are a number of ways we could read that. Is this just going to be some cutesy Friday the 13th thing, maybe eying Halloween just over the horizon? It’s a strong possibility, considering how odd it would be for Nokia to otherwise bring up the date like that.
Still, there’s a lot that Nokia might actually have to announce. That could be something as simple as news about update distribution, specific carrier availability for individual models, or maybe a new color or storage option for an existing handset. There’s an outside chance it could even be app news – we all know how hard Nokia’s been pushing for a WP8 Instagram.
Any guesses on what might be in store? Honestly, there’s probably only a fifty percent chance that this “surprise” is real news, but we’ll keep out eyes peeled for tomorrow’s announcement, all the same.
