Nokia teases a Friday the 13th “surprise” for us tomorrow

Nokia is up to their old tricks again, taking to Twitter to tease something for tomorrow. In case you needed a reminder, tomorrow is Friday the 13th and legend has it it’s an unlucky day. Well, unless you rock a hockey mask, live on Crystal Lake, have mommy issues and a grudge against promiscuous teens.

What could tomorrow hold? Your guess is as good as ours.

Before you ask, we checked Nokia’s support page and AT&T is still listed as “waiting for approval” for the Lumia 920 and GDR2, so unless that changes soon, we don’t think that’s it. New app? A bloody red Lumia 1020 (rumored to be coming)? That red Lumia 928 for Verizon? Maybe just a silly joke?

Sound off in comments as to your guess.

Update: None of you remembered that a certain Lumia 925 for AT&T goes on sale tomorrow ;)

Nokia teases a Friday the 13th “surprise” for us tomorrow

283 Comments

I love AT&T and support everything they do. If they decide I cant have GDR2 then they are probably right in doing so. I have been a very bad customer and should probably have my monthly rate continue to increase. Shame on me :(

bailey, im in UK with Lumia 820 on EE and got my amber upgrade last week, all official and no flashing
 

Just checked and my phone reports it's up to date, so looks like AT&T is doing fine, right?  Otherwise it would say that there is an update and AT&T hasn't released it yet, right?

No. Your phone will be "up to date" until the update is released for your phone/carrier. It doesn't mean you have the update yet.

A 64GB Lumia 1020 in new Cyan with GDR2 pre-installed on the AT&T network.
 
 
 
 
 
Friday Fool!
 
Well, at least I can dream.

If we didn't get GDR2 it wouldn't make me upset.  Now if GDR3 does in fact have Custom Nootification tones and we didn't that I'd grab a pitchfork and head to AT&T.

Why would Nokia tweet something specific to a single carrier with reach in onnly one country? This isn't even Nokia USA tweeting it. C'mon...common sense, folks!

I have an unlocked L920 from Telstra but I'm using it on AT&T and fortunately got the GDR2 & Amber updates yesterday.

Well, since AT&T tests better and more thoroughly than the rest of the industry, I don't expect to see GDR2/Amber until 2014, at the earliest.  I am so glad they care for us more than other carriers do, who just throw updates out all willy-nilly.

It's correct...the final version of GDR3 it's ready and October it's come WINDOWS PHONE 8.1 (Windows Phone's 1st year)

Or maybe... They are announcing the full feature for their glance screen to have the notifications since they recently updated those settings apps with an on/off switch for notifications... Maybe... *Gasp*... jejeje

Probably nothing huge. If it were something big (Lumia 1520, tablet) they'd host an event.
 

I would really love to hear an "integrated/intimate MS+Nokia partnership" than a "buyout"... atleast that would have kept the branding 'Nokia Lumia - powered by Microsoft' what everybody would have loved

The surprise is that MS is buying ATT cuz it's the only way they could get GDR2 out to our 920's before the end of September. Hey, it could happen. I think I heard an ATT rep say exactly that on a support chat earlier today. I'll see if I can find the transcript. ;-)

We have so many instagram apps an official shouldn't be upheld to such a high position so I hope I didn't see anymore ppl saying that if they said snapchat it might be more interesting cuz we don't have that

We don't need snatch-chat. It'll probably be boring ass official instagram. Which we also don't need cuz we already have a bunch of awesome 3rd party instagram.

Correction you don't need snapchat. I would like it. I don't even use it for freakyness its just fun makin goofy faces. We don't need official apps cuz as long we have excellent developers to make 3rd party apps. But snapchat will not allow ppl to sobi don't understand what their problem is. We only "need" the official so that we can say yea we have "instagram" or w/e especially tho basic ppl who don't look up 3rd party or don't even know what 3rd party is

Oh crap. I live in Crystal Lake, IL and my neighbor loves hockey...i haven't seen him mom in ages....

Since 6tag now has multiple account, I have no use for an official app that doesn't. Follow my new public account for great unedited 1020 pics. BK_lumia1020

Same here with my 1020. Extremely bad luck as I also broke a cyan 920 within the first week of launch. At least the 1020 isn't shattered, just a small corner of the screen chipped off. Added insurance right after.

Not excited because it probably won't benefit everyone. A new phone I can't afford, a new color I don't want and maybe a new app I don't use. What I want is my 920 update from at&t

How will my Lumia survive Friday the 13? I don't know, I could barely make it through the entire movie alive; my 920 is surely doomed.

Wouldn't this be on the Nokia usa twitter feed if it was American specific? They stated this on their global page, so whatever happens it will be for all phones and not just American ones. Honestly, some of you Americans think the world revolves around you!

Your response was great and pointed out what others should have already noticed if they follow Nokia twitter handles... until your last sentence.
Honestly, some of you can't get off America's nuts.

We do tend to be quite centered on US news. Although I only thought of that because it had been reported weeks ago that the ATT 925 was releasing on the 13th. I actually hope I'm wrong about it and a new feature/official app etc

So what does it matter if some in the US want it to be something that affects them?
Others in the comments have made suggestions that it be something for their particular country... yet no one is chastising them for that.
Like I said, get off our nuts.

No one is on your nuts! But this was a tweet from their global feed, you'd have assumed most would have been wise to this! But ignorance, and self importance rule the roost!

I also think so. I mean that whole "tell us how your Lumia will survive" thing does really sound like a way to be entered to the giveaway.

If it was a 4 months ago I guess, I bet everybody was complaining about Instagram. "I hope instagram" "Instagram is coming" "Instagram!!" and etc. Thanks to Daniel Gary , Rudy Huyin , and David, no one complain about that app. Specially because 6tag is much better than official one.

I hope it is Flipboard (Vine I got 6sec)..

 Nokia Lumia 925 will launch on AT&T network on September 13th and it will have more colors and Free with 2yr contract and Free Nokia Music for 13 months ???
Who knows, hopefully it will be good!
 

You will be able as of tomorrow to down load a new version of Nokia Suite. which will enable you to manage you Lumia phone's and be able to install updates when ever you want thru the App. Just like the old Symbian days.

Probablemente podría ser una nueva App, y entre ellas están path, flipboard e Instagram!
Pero sea lo que sea, si viene de Nokia, algo bueno será! ;)

I think they're going to report on the Terms of the Licensing Deal Apple must have signed to allow them to make the "new" iPhones.
Between iOS7 and all those colored phones the only original thing Apple has left are rounded corners!

Question: if i have an unlocked att lumia 920 but i'm using it on Telcel (Mexico) the GDR2 will come from Att or Telcel? I'm confused :S

Anyone that makes an ATT comment- you clearly aren't thinking. The tweet came from Nokia (as in applicable all over the world) and not Nokia USA/Nokia US. I know that my fellow American's love to think we are the center of the world, but we simply aren't.
 
Those that are commenting on a new color for a device- you are at least thinking logically. I could even see it being a specific, long awaited app.
 
I have no idea what it is, but I do know it is 100% illogical for one of Nokia's worst markets (per country market share) to be the center of a global twitter account.
