Register your spot now for the Nokia 9/5 event in New York


Nokia certainly knows how to throw a party. Nokia World 2011 (the first evening) and the Deadmau5 performance are two examples of the kind of events the manufacturer has held here in the UK. We've now learned that Nokia has plans to hold a party in New York on September 5th. So what's in stall for attendees?

We're not entirely sure as details are scarce as to what exactly is on the agenda. What we'd imagine to be on the night (from previous experiences) is loud music, an unlimited supply of beverages, and -of course- new Nokia Windows Phones. It wouldn't be a party without Windows Phone Central, so we'll be heading on down to see what all the fuss is about. 

The event is for those who are 18 or above and will take place between 6-9pm in the Chelsea neighbourhood. You can register your spot at the Nokia event over on the RSVP page.

Register your spot now for the Nokia 9/5 event in New York


Wow I would love to be there! Too bad I'm in Canada :(
But Im sure Nokia will surprise us with their upcoming devices!

I'm in Texas and was assuming it would cost me flight plus hotel expenses, but if you attending, have fun, I'll be surfing the wpcentral site for breaking news!

I registered... now I just need to ask my boss for the day off. New York is only a 6 hour drive from me, so I can get up Wednesday morning... drive over, attend the event, and drive home. May have to take a half-day Thursday to sleep in, lol.

Now that the news has filtered out that it's all about one flagship exclusive to AT&T (again) and likely a couple of mid range phones for T-Mo USA and Verizon, the presentation will be anti-climactic, or in short, 'meh'.

I'm on AT&T, and I'm currently on the original Titan, so I wouldn't call it "meh" at all. Also, if you're disappointed about the support for T-Mobile and Verizon, maybe call them and voice your disapproval. :)

Seriously debated about extending my trip an extra day so I could go to this, but alas, plane tickets are pretty pricey to change. :(

4 hours away....Hmmmm.... tempting
Saves me a 4 hour trip, parking costs and hotel for the night (Not going to drive home at 9pm) and I'll get all the news here...
I hope there is some news about Verizon...

I also registered. I guess the registration doesn't guarantee a spot. The confirmation email I received states that space is limited and entry is not guaranteed. So better be there early.

My birthday is September 5th. I was considering doing this, but friends say they have better plans for me.

I just tried to register and it says registration is currently closed... That sucks, it's only a 20 minute drive for me to NYC.

Yeah I too tried to register but am again too late. Too bad its just a 50 minute drive for me. Guess I'll read WPCentral and be a voyeur ;-)

I'll be there. Will wpcentral be giving out free shirts so we can identify ourselves as patrons of this wonderful site?

Why waste time?
It's going to have another lackluster event by Nokia.
WP8 will not deliver, trust me, it's a terrible platform. Nokia will not deliver either, no 41MP PureView, etc...
Just forget it, check out the iPhone event on September 12th though, now that's going to be exciting!

Troll. I'm sorry, iOS is boring and flat.  And yes, of course it will be exciting for you to go to the iPhone event, they havent dont anything with the form factor in years.
