Nokia took to their corporate blog this morning and said they’ll have a BIG announcement tomorrow. No indication of what it could be, only stating that “We can’t tell you what it is yet. But we can tell you when. Tune in tomorrow at 9am UK time.” An image showing what seems to be the back of an orange/red looking tablet, maybe a phablet, with a prominent Nokia logo.

Nokia has been long rumoured to launch a Windows tablet – dating back to early 2012 – but a couple weeks back Nokia UK’s Ray Haddow said that Microsoft and Nokia have been “working even closer” and that we’ll see new collaborative efforts in the near future. Perhaps a new tablet is forthcoming.

    How come there were no leaks about this one?
    Usually nokia’s devices are known to have almost everything leaked before official announcement.

      It’s the 4.7′ Lumia 625

      I was typing this as you posted. Agree.

    If it’s a new tablet, it needs to run a giant version of Windows Phone and not Windows RT, or it’ll be dead on arrival (unless it’s windows RT with a very low price).

    I hope it’s a tablet, but only if it is running on a low-powered Haswell chip (for Windows 8) OR Snapdragon 800 (for RT). At this point I don’t really mind RT as I’ll be using it as my “take to work” tablet to sit alongside my PC at the office.

    I hope Nokia added LTE or at least HSPA+ to it, and perhaps daring enough to include an active digitizer with stylus. I would gladly pay the full premium for such a device (LTE + digitizer), even if it were just Windows RT.

    I doubt they will announce something huge without announcing the event weeks before.
    This looks like a small announcement to me.
    Probably another Asha phone or a new service.

    I’m betting on a Nokia Lumia Surface. Merging the two product lines and allowing windows to shuffle off the low performing Windows RT to another company that’s proven able to sell product.

      We are launching a 82 megapixel phone camera.
